My sister and I are inheriting property located in Puerto Rico. We do not have plans to keep the property and wanted to know if it was a complicated process.
I suggest that you re-post your question on the Puerto Rico Avvo page. The easiest thing to do is hire a good real estate broker and real estate lawyer in Puerto Rico to assist you in selling the property.
I am a former federal and State prosecutor and have been handling criminal defense and personal injury cases for over 18 years. The above answer, and any follow up comments or emails, is for informational purposes only and not meant as legal advice.
You will need to consult with an attorney who is licensed to practice law in Puerto Rico. The laws ca be quite different from those in NY (or most of the other states), so this is something that must be handled by someone with experience there.
My answer does not constitute legal advice and may not be relied upon by anyone for any purpose and does not constitute an attorney/client relationship or an offer to form such a relationship.
