Leaving It All Up To You, Linda Ronstadt, 1970

Sadly,my spring vacation also comes to an end.  Time to return to Vermont and get ready for the summer art show circuit.
I think of nothing but the lot.  Although we have an accepted offer and have given a substantial deposit to the realtor, nothing else is settled.  A local attorney, who the sellers insist upon using, says the owners must get permission from the  municipality to sell.  We have also found that the town records show different property lines than the certified survey, so we need a letter from the municipality recognizing that there is a discrepancy and they will honor the certified survey. We will need special Power of Attorney papers for Puerto Rico.  Our U.S. POA's are not recognized in Puerto Rico.  This is a legal document prepared and notarized - only by an attorney.  In Puerto Rico, a notary must be an attorney.  We should make sure to get everything in writing regarding fees, schedules and payments from engineers, contractors and anyone else.
The ball is now in the Seller's court.  Their realtor needs to find out what exactly is needed to get this property sold.  And, probably no one knows, as there has been no untitled land, without a structure, sold in this barrio in this administration.
Our realtor says we must be patient.
