The Puerto Rico Property Registry is a unit of the Department of Justice whose primary function is the registration of documents relating to real estate transactions. The Registry also provides publicity about these businesses to lawyers, financial institutions, appraisers, title investigators and the general public.
When there are inheritance issues with real estate (houses, buildings, estates, etc.), it is necessary at the end of the process to go to the Registry to make the corresponding transfer. In this case, you would also have to go to the Municipal Revenue Collection Center (CRIM) to register the new owners. The CRIM is the appropriate agency for all matters relating to property tax.
We also have a special real estate search service. This service is available in case you need to verify the registration data of a property.
In summary, we offer the following services:
- Presentation of documents, including deeds and transfers
- Property search: available for an additional cost
- Resolution of notifications
- Withdrawal of documents
- Other services
