Frequently Asked Question

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Ut elit tellus, luctus nec ullamcorper mattis, pulvinar dapibus leo.

Yes, foreigners have been able to own property in Honduras since 1991.

A non-Honduran citizen can purchase, as an individual, 3000 square meters (.74 acres), or less for residential use. That being said, a Honduran Corporation can easily be set up with foreigner ownership as the ‘Administrator’ in which the Corporation can own as an asset of the corporation, virtually any sized property to develop or for residential use.

This is a simple process which can be accomplished by a local attorney at a cost of approx. $1.500.00. If you do not speak Spanish, an English-speaking lawyer is essential as all documents have to be written in Spanish.  By forming this corporation, you are entitled to all the rights of a Honduran citizen regarding ownership of your property. We can provide you with a referral on some real estate attorneys to choose from if you wish. Some attorneys are now offering a “combo” package that would provide the necessary services for both a corporation and a residency.

Each Bank on the island has policies that may differ from the next. If your property purchase is through a Honduran Corporation with you as the ‘Administrator’ of that Corporation, you can set up an account. Some banks here will set up a foreigner account here with your passport, others wish you to be a legal resident. Ask your REALTOR Professional or Attorney for assistance or guidance in regard to help with this.

This expense is normally the expense of the Buyer, the Seller paying real estate commission/fees, (the fees taxable at a rate up to 15%), and a 4% capital gains tax. If the transfer of property comes in the form of a ‘Change of Administrators’ of a corporation the cost is normally much less, depending upon the attorney and efforts on their part. If there is not a corporation transfer involved, costs are about 5.7 to 6 % of the purchase price.

This is always a tough question to answer in that things are so much different in so many ways to actually judge that.  The question really is what sort of lifestyle do you wish to lead?  When you move to a foreign country thing that you buy everyday “there” are now imported items “here”, therefore more expensive.  If you go to a local store here and pick out things that you are familiar with,  your first impression will not be a good one. That being said,  if you look to the fruits and vegetables, seafood and locally grown, you often find great, locally grown, reasonably priced options. Check out some of the innovative packaging in heavy foil pouches with zip off tops instead of canned goods. Buy the sea bass here at 1/5th the price and you will walk away with an opinion 180º different than where you started.

Property Taxes are extremely low in regard to what most are used to in most other countries. A typical 3br home is +/- $800.00. A vacant home site of average price can be about $100.00 annually.  (all property taxes are calculated on the purchase price of the property.

Electricity is higher than most people are used to paying. Much of that price is generated in that it is an island and all fuel is imported.

RECO (Roatan Electric Company) has proved to be one of the top companies in this country, embarking on what has turned out to be the largest project investment in this country in 2016. This project includes new natural gas generation along with windmill generation to modernize the power generation on Roatan.  2020 will also see RECO build out large capacity solar output.

Roatan, powered by natural gas, wind and solar maybe one of the most environmentally friendly areas in the world.

That said, there is no bill for ‘heating’, therefore no billing to you. The south side of the island or hilltops are normally much cooler due to prevailing SE breezes.  With water temperatures from 75º to 85º most of the year and the island only a couple miles wide, cooling breezes may have considerable impact on your power needs.

From a client’s perspective, “outside looking in”, it differs little from any purchase you may have made at home. You choose the property best suited for your needs and enter into a simple ‘Purchase Agreement’ outlining the details of the property purchase, price, timeline, details, etc. thus making an ‘Offer to Purchase’.  After acceptance of the Seller, you would make a deposit, which here is usually 10% of the purchase price, and close on the transaction within 30 to 45 days. When it is stated ‘From a client’s perspective’, ‘outside looking in’ what I mean is this is when your real estate Professional and his Brokerage office really kicks in and their part of the scenario is considerably different than in North America for example. They go to work with an attorney that you choose, (Agents and Brokers may make recommendations if you wish), to obtain Title Copies, do Title searches, obtain recent surveys, and work towards the conclusion or ‘closing’. The duties, responsibilities and knowledge base differ greatly in comparison to Agents in most other locations. You then would be present for the ‘closing’ where Seller and Buyer at that time sign the Notary Protocol (Closing Documentation), and the transaction is completed, (For a more detailed description of this process go to the ‘Buyer Info link on this Site)

Many, if not most Sellers will consider financing the purchase themselves with either a legal, registered mortgage contract or possibly with the stock certificates, (which become ‘bearer bonds’, held in Escrow until the mortgage is paid). Some choose to obtain financing in their home country via a second on their residence or personal loan and pay Cash here. Several alternatives may be available and may differ from property to property. Overall financing is available through a bank it is offered to citizens and legal Residents only and normally at higher interest rates, higher down payments and shorter term.

You do not need a legal Residency to visit here or be in the country for 90 days or less, (a one-time extension can be obtained for additional 30-day period). If you wish to move here or stay for extended periods of time a Residency would be advisable.

There are several different types of Residencies in Honduras. A Retirement Residency (with a retirement monthly income – not from Honduras of U.S. $2,000.00 or more) is available with some benefits. This would need to be in the form of a pension or investment income that is verifiable. The benefits include the ability to bring in a new or used car and personal items duty free.

If you are of the age that you are still interested in working but on your terms, you can start a small business here, either physical or an ‘e-business’.  That could be done by creating a Honduran Corporation.   Also available is an Investor’s Residency or a ‘Rentista’ Residency, (a type that would allow you to live off of any type of income generated here or ‘there’.

The necessary documents for this process usually include police report, passport, marriage license/ birth certificate (if spouse & children are also applying), and a Honduran health certificate. It usually takes 6-12 months for the procedure, and costs start at $1500.00 (depending on the number of people and type of residency).

FURTHER NOTE- This information can change annually, and you should ask your Broker or Agent for the name and contact of a DEPENDABLE local Attorney to communicate with previous to the start of the process. 

Like almost every country there are areas that have higher crime rates than others. The Bay Islands are normally very safe.  Bad things can happen to good people anywhere. Sometimes small countries are painted with a large brush, highlighting only the negative.

Roatan Buyers should know that Islanders are normally peaceful and very friendly. It is a poor country and petty theft can certainly happen, especially if common sense is not used.

Roatan Buyers sleep a little sounder each night knowing that the U.S maintains the largest U.S. Military Base in Central America and South America on the mainland of Honduras. The mainland of Honduras has it’s share of crime in the cities no doubt, as does Chicago and many U.S. locations.  That said the Bay Islands traditionally has been very safe and has a murder rate lower than many other tropical locations.
