Hallo from Chicago,
Last year we bought property on Playa Limon,Miches.
We are planning to build a House and retire in DR.
In January we got title for the Land and thru our realtor we found Surveyor to mark the Property and some people to build a fence around our property(custom in DR).
People who own the Land behind us told our Realtor that they own our Property and knocked out fence and markers done by Surveyors.
We went back to our Lawyer and for a lot of $$$$$ she got us extra Permit to build Fence...and some other papers to from local government and from federal government in Santo Domingo.
Local police and Coast guard told us they will protect us but they didn't....Fence and markers ended up in the Ocean again.
Now,...our Lawyer ask for a lot more $$$$$ to get us Armed police assistance to do that.
First we do not have Money to pay her and second we do not like to start our life in DR and people next to us with Armed force.
We hire another Lawyer and he check all our Paper and they are all LEGAL and CLEAR.
He ask for about same $$$$$ like firs Lawyer to sue people and we don't even know way we have to sue them.
We are from Bosnia and Hercegovina and we left our first Country 20 year ago because we didn't lake to fight and have armed force around as and our Kids.
I didn't even tell them we are having same problem in DR....
I don't speak Spanish yet so I have hard time talking to local government and local people about my problem......Any suggestion?
Thank you .
