Foreigner Friendly Property Laws

 

  • Foreigners have the same rights when purchasing land in Costa Rica as locals do. You can own property outright in your own name or in the name of a corporation. You do not need a local partner, except in cases of beachfront concession property, where special rules apply.

There is absolutely nothing to prevent you from purchasing Costa Rica property in your own name, but the majority of buyers form a corporation with the help of a reputable lawyer and then purchase property through that corporation (a “Sociedad Anonima” or S.A. for short) or a limited liability company, called S.R.L.

The reason for this is threefold:

 

One – it may be more beneficial to have your income (from rentals) or gains (from sale of the property) taxed within a Costa Rican company rather than having it taxed as personal income. Mind you, this will depend on the tax laws of the country from which you originate.

 

Two – it allows for simplified estate planning, whereby you can give or will shares of the corporation that owns the property to members of your family.

 

Three – if you ever decide to sell your property, you can simply transfer the shares of the corporation to the new owner.

 

Another plus for property purchases in Costa Rica is its Public Registry, which allows your lawyer to confirm that there is clear title to the property in question as well as to discern if there are any restrictions on the property before the deal goes through.

  • Very attractive low Municipal Property Taxes.
