The Puerto Rico Property Registry is much unlike any property registry in the United States. While on some instances you hear the phrase “the registry cannot take your rights away” it is not less true that in some instances it does.
The main reason for the noticeable differences has all to do with Puerto Rico’s Spanish tradition, a subject I am sure we will comment more about as this subject evolves in the following weeks.
This category will deal with your questions on how the registry works in Puerto Rico, and on how it may or not affect your rights over real estate poperty, particularly that in the Island of Vieques.
