Legal Answers
48 Questions Answered
Q. Can I submit these documents on the portal of the CRIM to request a change of ownership? & request these permits OPGe?
A: Your description contains confusing information about the multiple steps required for an inheritance to be correctly transferred to the heirs. Given the specialized nature of estate law in Puerto Rico, hiring an attorney to do this for you is highly recommended. If everything is correct, a licensed professional could verify the paperwork to be submitted and then file it at the corresponding agencies. Doing it yourself opens the door for multiple errors that will further complicate matters for the estate and possibly freeze the ownership status, costing you multiple hours of work and resources for an attorney to fix the many issues that could arise.
Q. How can I relinquish my portion of ownership to one of my siblings who also owns the property in Puerto Rico.
A: That "resolution" you mention must be examined to ensure precisely what it entails. In general, however, the process to relinquish or renounce an inheritance will depend on the year of the passing, given that there is a new recent Civil Code in effect. For instance, if the passing was before November 28, 2020, then the old Civil Code applies, so once you relinquish, then your heirs will also renounce automatically. However, that is not the case under the new Civil Code, which lets your heirs substitute your portion. In general, the resignation could be done either via a deed or through a court case if there is one filed already. In short, an attorney will need to examine your case in detail to see your options. As to the name used, that could be amended or fixed by the attorney if need be.
Q. I live in Tennessee as did my father when he passed away in 2020. He owned a residence in Puerto Rico and a will distrib
A: No, you don´t have to come to PR to receive your money. Instead, you need to hire a Puerto Rico probate or inheritance attorney to do all the paperwork for you.
