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
38 Questions Answered
Q. My uncle passed away in Puerto Rico. He rented a house and likely did not have a will. What legal steps are required?
A: As you can see from the detailed answer provided by colleague Pagán-Colon, there are a number of legal steps to be taken in order to work on your uncle´s inheritance. In short, if your uncle was single, did not leave a will and did not have any children, then the heirs will be his parents, but if these were not alive, then his siblings. However, given the complexity of it all, you need to hire an inheritance attorney licensed in Puerto Rico to take care of it all.
Q. How can I know if my father's eldest daughter claimed an inheritance left for my father, by his last sibling, in PR?
A: I don't know what happened with your dad's attorney, but that kind of situation could be easily researched. First, by making sure that the attorney is still in office, that is, if he has not passed away or perhaps migrated, as happened with a number of colleagues particularly after hurricane Maria. There is a directory of Puerto Rico attorneys, just like many other jurisdictions have. On the other hand, the PR courts now have an electronic filing system so your case could be searched for to see the status is if any. In general, once a person passes away, there are a number of legal steps required for the assets to be transferred to the heirs. So, for that to be bypassed is very difficult, particularly given the bureaucracy that permeates this type of proceedings. I assume that you have tried to contact the attorney via certified letters with proof of receipt. Finally, as to the possibility of a will by your blind dad, any local attorney would know that a witness would be needed for that to happen, and if it was prepared before November of 2020, then an additional 3 witnesses were needed.
Q. How do you assign a P.O.A. for a real estate closing sale in Puerto Rico from the mainland U.S.?
A: A Power of Attorney for a real estate closing in Puerto Rico must include the details from the property as they appear on the Property Registry of Puerto Rico, along with the property tax number. Therefore, you need to contact a PR-licensed attorney to make sure everything is done according to the Puerto Rico laws and regulations.
