Roatan

Roatan is a beautiful Caribbean island lying about 33 miles north of the mainland of Honduras. Roatan offers tropical weather year around, plenty of sunshine, beautiful sandy beaches, and lush vegetation covered hills. Flowers bloom and fruit grows all year.

Roatan's coral reef surrounding the island has made it a destination for scuba divers from around the world. Divers and snorkelers enjoy clear water, colorful fish, and an underwater world of beauty and diversity. The island features many dive sites, including channels, reef walls, shipwrecks and a sunken plane.

Roatan offers an international airport with direct flights to US cities and two cruise ship docks. A ferry service provides transportation between Roatan and La Ceiba, a city on the coast of the mainland. Private plane and yacht charters are available as well. Taxis are affordable and abundant. In Oak Ridge, water taxis take visitors on mangrove tours and locals to their homes on cays.

Roatan draws real estate investors and retirees, partly due to the beauty of the island and all it has to offer, and partly due to the low cost of living in Honduras. Are you looking for investment property? Foreign investors own millions of dollars worth of real estate on Roatan and the nearby Caribbean Islands of Utila and Guanaja

Roatan Real Estate

Having a Honduran attorney involved in your Honduras real estate transaction is vital. Not all Honduras land has been properly registered with the government to secure the right to ownership. A reputable Honduras lawyer will perform a title search and make sure the property ownership is properly recorded with a legal document which is referred to as a public document in Honduras. That public document will either be an Esritura Publica or Dominio Pleno, depending on the status of the property at the time of transfer.

An Escritura Publica is used if the property was already registered prior to the sale of the real estate. If the property was not registered previously, a Dominio Pleno is issued after a judge concludes that the seller is the rightful owner. The judge verifies ownership by consulting with surrounding property owners and documents. A notice of the issuance of a Dominio Pleno is posted for 30 days to prior to the document becoming final. A Domino Pleno has as much legal authority as an Escritura Publica in defining ownership. The public document will have a square stamp that shows the court's registry number. Your real estate purchase must have a survey with meets and bounds defined before the public documents will be registered.

The government charges a real estate transfer tax. The transfer tax and closing costs cost the buyer about 5% of the selling price.

A few planned developments on Roatan are already protected with deed restrictions and covenants. You must get building permits from the municipality. Environmental protection is a growing effort in Roatan, both to preserve wildlife and to preserve the value of the island as a tourist destination.
