FOREIGN INVESTMENT LAW
The foreign investment Law No.77, approved in September of 1995, specifically refers to investments in REAL STATE by foreigners. Based upon Napoleonic law (British Origin), used extensively in British colonies such as the UK, British West Indies, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, etc. Ownership is outright and certified by both land registry and the national catastral office via an ownership title deed for both land and property. Essentially, owning property in Cuba is identical to the same ownership rights available in the world.
