Video: Probate law in Costa Rica explained
What happens to a property in Costa Rica owned by an individual, a couple or a corporation in the event of the death of one of the owners?

Petersen was born in Costa Rica and has been practicing law for 22 years, with a specialization in real estate transactions. He is the author of the book “The Legal Guide to Costa Rica.”
