Venezuela: Purchase, Sell, Lease, or Rent Real Estate, Airplanes, Vehicles, and Vessels
Business transactions involving different types of assets are carried out every single day all over Venezuela. They mainly refer to the purchase, sale, lease, or rent of real estate, airplanes, vehicles, and vessels. In general, both parties may reach an agreement as regards the conditions of the particular commercial operation without resorting to legal assistance. They frequently receive assistance by a realtor or a notary public in order to formalize said business activities. However, these commercial acts abide by their own and specific set of regulations, formalities, and requirements, which may slightly change according to the applicable jurisdiction. Therefore, seeking expert advice would greatly benefit you before entering into any kind of contracts.

Another very important aspect –which other law firms usually do not take into account- is financing. We can help you analyze the most convenient financing options (as well as the interest rates involved) currently available in the market.
We offer an outstanding service that includes an action plan that is reflected in regular reports, which outline the progress achieved so far, as well as any necessary adjustments. For instance, when selling real estate, a buyer may submit a counteroffer, which is an alternative response to an offer received, which usually consists of terms different from those of the offer rejected.
Aircraft is another very specific field of our practice, which requires the expertise from another set of professionals. Namely, appraisers, former pilots, aviation mechanics, and consulting experts. Moreover, aircraft operators, technical translators, pilot licensing officer, etc. In addition to the requirements applicable to any commercial transaction, there are some other items that should also be taken into account, for example: aircraft registration at the Instituto Nacional de Aeronáutica Civil (INAC) [National Institute of Civil Aviation], a valid registered operator license, an aircraft insurance policy, the transfer of ownership, etc.
In turn, vessels are very popular in Venezuela since it is bathed by the Caribbean Sea. The Instituto Nacional de los Espacios Acuáticos (INEA) [National Institute of Water Spaces] is the government agency in charge of registering any kind of private vessel, as well as issuing all the official documentation. Actually, there is a wide array of formalities and technicalities applicable to this type of assets.
