    A deslinde is a requirement to sell any property, but I am pretty certain a property can be sold ONCE without one. The problem is that there is so much land fraud in DR that most buyers won’t purchase without a deslinde title. The price changes dramatically too. Mr AE’s brother sold a large newish home in SD in a gated residential, that had never been deslinded. A large portion of the sale price was withheld at settlement by the buyer pending the deslinde. They thought it would be quick, but it’s been over two years,so far.

    Wise decision by the buyer. I agree no one should buy any property in DR without a deslinde and title report. To do so means your purchase could be for nada

    A fence placed in the wrong location means nothing, but it is a start. In the US there are laws of adverse possession (maybe here too, as squatters have lots of rights) which applies also to someone who occupies the land with full knowledge of neighbors, and it could become the "squatter's" own.

    Say you farmed some land or ran cattle on a ranch and the fences were 40' off where they legally should have been, but you did it for at least 7 years, maybe even built a pond or planted orchards. That land could become yours, not necessarily for free, and it would have to be decided by a judge and likely the true owner would need to be paid to file a quit claim on the portion.
    I think the caveat is this had to have been observed by the rightful owner or his trustees - but maybe that is wishful thinking.

    You can sell a property without deslinde but only the taxes part will be transferred into your name until deslinde is done then land courts will transfer into your name title , they just added more judges to land court because of back log..

    The first thing you should do go to the local Registro de Tierra. I think for Bonao its in La Vega with your title copy and request to see how your property is registered. I am sure you will also find the relevant plan. It could be a general or a large one of several titulos. The Agrominsor would do his dislinde on the basis of this. You can also go to the head registro de Titilos in Santo Domingo that is in the Feria on av independencia. Good luck. How your land is registered is the basis of everything.

    Dominican culture does not always keep up with the law. I put up a fence on my property, but not right next to the road. So various entities concluded that the space between my fence and the road was "public" and used it accordingly. To stop this practice, I moved the fence. Since then, various of these entities have challenged my right to have the new fence, and it has been torn down once by public works. To PROVE the new fence location is valid, someone will have to pay for an agrimensor to come back. Guess what? NOBODY wants to do that! Much better to just yell about it on a regular basis - tear up fence, repair fence - yell some more. Actual "diligencia" is way off the radar.

    If you have a surveyor visit, it is highly in the interest of you and any future owner to clearly mark the agrimensor-identified boundaries with a sturdy fence and with the neighbors' acknowledgement. Otherwise . . .
