One of the principal services we offer is assistance for land ownership in Panama. There are two types of documents available in Panama. One is a title to land kept in the Public Registry. The other is a certificate kept in the Agricultural Reform Department, which allows for “right of possession”.
Coast and island properties used to be “right of possession” land. In April of 2009, however, Panama passed a new law allowing these properties to be titled. Therefore, if you are going to buy coastal property, it’s important to employ the services of an attorney to help you with checking the title, issuing an insurance policy and gaining a title to the land. With a policy on “right of possession” land, you are guaranteed that your title insurance company will defend your ownership rights.
