FRACTIONAL PROPERTY



Individuals, directly or through their trusts or any other investment vehicle, can opt to own a property in  Roatan, Utila, Guanaja or the Hog Keys,  by owning a fraction of the issued shares of the corporation holding title.


  • Family members can do it
  • Friends and partners can do it
  • Joint venture participants can do it
  • Like minded team members can do it
  • Diversified investors can do it


Shareholdings are reflected in time in terms of use and costs.  For a fraction of the price you own 100% of your allotted time


Shareholders are protected by a multi-nationally valid shareholders agreement
When applicable, shareholders incur in a fraction of HOA and other assessed fees based on the  % as their holdings.

Taxes and maintenance cost is split among the shareholders. This is not time share this is ownership.

CHARTERED CITIES

Honduras has passed legislation paving the road to the establishment of charted cities.
A charter city is a new type of special reform zone. It extends the concept of a special economic zone by increasing its size and expanding the scope of its reforms. It must be large enough to accommodate a city with millions of workers and residents. Its reforms must extend to all the rules needed to support exchange in a modern market economy and structure interactions in a well-run city.
The concept allows for cross-national government partnerships that facilitate the transfer of working systems of rules to greenfield locations. By adhering strictly to two key principles — that the new rules apply only to people who choose to live under them and that they apply equally to all residents — rules can be copied from elsewhere and still achieve a high degree of local legitimacy.
ROATANLAWYERS shall be at the cutting edge of this new investment opportunity in order to provide reliable and efficient legal services and representation.

HAVING A CORPORATION HOLDING TITLE TO PROPERTY IN ROATÁN AND THE BAY ISLANDS OF HONDURAS.





Honduran law limits the size of real estate that can be owned by foreign nationals. The law permits one property under ¾ @ (3000 sq. meters) for residential use only.

A practical way to own property is by a Honduran corporation. (Sociedad Anonima)

Here is some advantages and benefits in doing so:
1. A Honduran corporation can buy and sell real estate property any time.
2. You own the shares to the corporation that owns the assets(s).
3. You (and your partner(s)) control the Board of Directors and the management of the
corporation.




The advantages of having a corporation hold title to properties in Honduras.

  • • A corporate firewall protecting your assets.
  • • Limited liability corporation (LLC)
  • • Open bank accounts with local institutions
  • • Be eligible and apply for resident status under your corporation
  • • Buy other properties under the same corporation
  • • Convey rights, title, ownership total or partial (thru stock certificates)
  • • You can sell the property by transferring the shares.
  • • Ownership thru a corporate entity makes a very flexible asset to dispose of for Estate Planning.
  • • Honduran Corporations domiciled in Roatán shall apply and be eligible for Free Zone benefits.
  • • Foreign individuals (non resident aliens) are not eligible for Free Zone benefits.
  • • USA / Canada / UK tax benefits derived from ownership/investing in a foreign corporation.            (You should check this further with your Attorney in the US and your tax advisor/CPA)
  • • You can use the same corporation to do other business activities.
