-Today we discuss the peculiarities of Latin household help: specifically certain quirks of the maids, gardeners and maintenance men. You’ll probably hire one or more so it’s about time you find out certain things that gringos and expats should always be aware of… well before you start interviewing.           
-Petty thievery and how it affects us Gringos and Expats.        
-More great tips on building your own home in Latin America.
-Discussing Latin lawyers: the good, the bad and the ugly.
Should you worry if your lawyer has signature authority over your S.A. corporations and/or bank accounts?

At www.TheNewExpat.com we have a new feature: a blog written by a very trusted Latin lawyer friend and colleague (with great credentials). He will be blogging regularly from Central America touching on everything you want to know about Latin Legal issues such as residency, passports, contracts, S.A. corporations, banking, Trusts, courts, lawsuits, and much more. He’ll stress all manner of Latin Legal issues as they pertain to Expats. Better yet, you’ll be able to contact our Lawyer and email him your own legal questions too…
