Real Estate Fraud and Scams

Real Estate Fraud Concerns in Costa Rica

Given recent revelations concerning the disastrous real estate and mortgage scandal, there has been and continues to be ever increasing real estate fraud plague in Latin American countries. Undoubtedly it will be years before the impact of such activities will be known. Unfortunately those charged with protecting the interests of buyers, sellers, contractors, insurance companies and lending institutions have in many cases been the source of such fraudulent activities.

Our professionals provide those who are victimized by fraudulent conduct to have a fraud risk analysis of any real estate or mortgage transaction. Additionally, identify those responsible for the fraud and develop a strategy to hold them accountable for their conduct and repair any damage they may have caused.

Our staff professionals are well equipped to examine documents germane to real estate and mortgage transactions and have been successful in detecting, preventing and apprehending perpetrators.

Many of the scams today are not discovered until something triggers an inquiry. This combined with an archaic public recording system of such transactions have allowed the fraudsters to have unimpeded opportunities to commit these types of fraud. Before you settle down in Costa Rica, give us a call and let us conduct a fraud investigation. It can be an investment worth looking into. Our Real Estate Fraud investigators have saved tourists and future residents thousands of dollars in fraud and scams since 1997.
