For the Issuance of the Title Certificate:

The Title Registry Office will review that all requirements and documents are fulfilled and completed to proceed with the recordation of the new sale. The Title Registry will cancel the submitted Title Certificate and issue a new Title Certificate in favor of the Buyer. The time from the filing of the documents to issue the new Title Certificate may vary from  time to time, depending on the amount of work that the Title Registry Office has at that moment. Once issued  the new Title Certificate in its favor, Buyer may (with its personal ID) retire it or may grant a Power authorizing his attorney to pick it up on his behalf.

The entire process, from the sign of the purchase and sale agreement, may take aproximately 4 months.
