We will need to point out that our Transfer Tax (ie. how much of the purchase price you pay to the Government when you buy a property) is just 5% and NOT "10% plus 2% Attorney Fee." In most cases you would not even need an attorney to assist with land transfer. There are great real estate paralegals who will execute the transfer for a fixed fee which in the vast majority of cases is far less than 2% of the purchase price.
We were flattered to see a photo taken by one of your humble Pelican Team bloggers appear on the Belize page of this excellent retirement newsletter.
