The Expat Files Show # 653 – April 23, 2017
#1- There are many Latin legal issues that differ from what we are used to in the states. They differ mostly because the US follows British common law and Latins follow Napoleonic law. At my July “Expat Insider” seminar a trusted Latin lawyer will cover these topics and much more. He will be with our group every day to answer any and all of your legal questions.
#2-The word is out that worldwide, people in other countries hate or are put off by Americans, right? Well that’s mostly true elsewhere but NOT in Latin America. Today we share some “boots on the ground” stories to prove the point
#3-Do you live in a big USA city? Ok then, when the SHTF, do you have a farmer/relative out in the boonies with reliable renewable food supply who will gladly take you and your family in for a while, maybe a very long while? I doubt it. Almost none of us has a farmer in the family. However, nearly every Latin American city dweller has a handful of such relatives still living off the land. The average Latin city person is just one generation away from the farming life himself.
#4-Latin Real Estate Bubble Update: If you are searching for great real estate deals on the net IN ENGLISH- from the comfort of your sofa, good luck. Its not at all like getting “boots on the ground”, knocking on doors and calling around the properties yourself.
