Professional, efficient, knowledgeable, intelligent and skillful. My father passed away at the end of last year, and even though he lived in Massachusetts, he had property in Puerto Rico. As I also live in Massachusetts and was looking for a lawyer to represent me in Puerto Rico. Someone who would be able to take care of all inheritance matters for me and minimizing the need for me to take trips to the island. As I had previously used Ramon Olivencia at Abogado Notario Online, for some other legal matters, I reached out to him. Ramon immediately understood my requirements and established an effective working relationship with me. He was available 7 days a week, by telephone, text and email and frequently responded to me at night or on the weekends. He promised that the estate and all related matters would be completed before the start of hurricane season 2022. He beat that estimate by a month. Never once did I have to travel to the island for this matter. I highly recommend Ramon and am very pleased with his work.

Excellent service, attention and quality I recommend Ramon Olivencia a 100%! Years ago I owned a property in PR. Now, living in US, in order to buy a new property, they required me documentation proving I was no longer responsible for that property in PR. Needless to say, I did not have it and the bank said they couldn’t help me. Keep in mind this was all amidst Covid-19... Running out of time, less than 2 weeks before the closing, I found myself helpless, not knowing what to do, until I came across his website. I left a comment on his website on a Friday afternoon asking for help and that same evening I received a response from Ramon Olivencia. He was very professional and willing to help me. By that Sunday I had what I needed and translated to English! I was amazed by the service, the quick attention and the quality. I was able to complete my closing and I can’t thank Olivencia enough for making this possible.

Q. My mom who is still alive, wants to donate her property and house in Puerto Rico but owes "CRIM", what can be done?
A: The property tax exemption for residing at the main residence in Puerto Rico is not automatic. It has to be applied for and is only valid until a certain amount, although most residences in Puerto Rico, except the very expensive ones, qualify.

If she has a copy of the receipt of the original filing for when she bought the property (considering that she is the owner or co-owner with her husband, if any), then that is the best evidence for telling the CRIM to correct the error, if such was the case.

Typically, however, the closing attorney or bank, if any, is in charge of that, if the property was bought after 1991, which is when the CRIM was created.

If the form was never filed, then the property owner can always request a "retroactive" exemption, but there are a number of requisites, so an attorney is typically best at handling these situations.

As to a possible donation, the PR government needs to be sure first that there are no taxes, of any kind, owed before donating a property.

Q. My mom owns a home in puerto rico damaged by Hurricane Maria. She wants to transfer deed to me. How and where do I start
A: If your mother wants to transfer her house to you, she must sign a "donation" deed via an attorney, which both parties must sign. If one or the two of you cannot be present for the signing, then a Power of Attorney could be prepared. As part of the requirements for a donation, the attorney will first have to obtain a waiver from the Puerto Rico Treasury Department ("Departamento de Hacienda"), to make sure that there are no tax debts owed. If, on the other hand, the transfer involves a monetary exchange, that is, if she were to sell you the property, then a "sales" deed will have to be prepared instead.
Q. Do I need an attorney to file a Declaration of Heirs in Puerto Rico?
A: Due to the particularities and legal requirements needed for a Declaration of Heirs in Puerto Rico, an attorney is highly recommended. That way, you can rest assured that the petition is filed correctly before the courts. Any errors could negatively affect the rest of the documents that are typically filed afterward, such as the filings before the Puerto Rico Department of Treasury and, if applicable, the Property Registry. Those likely mistakes would then cost you additional money and time to fix them.
