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.

Even after multiple hurricanes hit the island of PR Ramon's services continued without interruption.
I worked with Mr. Olivencia on several estate and real estate issues in Puerto Rico and obtained his advice on several others I was dealing with outside that jurisdiction. His guidance, which was always helpful, and his work, which was timely and professional, obtained the results I was pursuing. In particular, his consistent follow-ups gave me a feeling he was always on top of the work at hand. I would recommend him to anyone.

Legal Answers
34 Questions Answered
Q. What does SUCN before a name stand for in Puerto Rico property records?
A: It is short for "Sucesión" or, in English, "Estate". It means that the proprietor passed away so the current owners are the heirs.
Q. My parents both passed, the house in Puerto Rico was left three of us, but my younger brother went and change the name .
A: If your parents did not leave a will, which is the overwhelming number of cases, then that is legally impossible to have happened. In particular, if the inheritance transfer process was indeed completed, the Property Registry will actually require and verify the Declaration of Heirs and can only transfer to all of the children of each deceased parent since they are what is called forced heirs. If, on the other hand, there was a will left, then once that document is validated, the property could be transferred to whoever is mentioned there. It is very likely that you have incomplete information on the actual case.
Q. My father has a property in Puerto Rico and died in January 2017. My father lived in New Jersey and left a will.
A: It´s difficult to offer an estimate without first looking at the details of your case, particularly the will and the details of the real estate. There are a number of steps to take by the attorney, which, in a nutshell, are: 1) validation of the will, 2) Inheritance Estate Form with the PR Treasury Department, 3) transfer of ownership at the Property Registry and, finally, 4) at the "CRIM" (property tax agency). Some attorneys charge a percentage, others a flat fee and some go by the hour. After the inheritance is done, then a whole new process needs to be done for the sale.
