Home / Practice areas / Renting Property
Renting property in Colombia poses specific challenges that are not always familiar to foreign clients.  Landlords need to minimize the risk that tenants will breach lease agreements, particularly in a market where it could take months or even years to forcibly evict tenants who overstay their lease.  Landlords also need to ensure that they comply with local rent laws that often require securing tourism licenses and even approval from homeowner associations. Finally, foreign clients need a dependable service provider that can manage their Colombian properties while living abroad.
