Re: HELP! Real Estate Tax Question

Sad about your situation, but as non-residents in Peru , you will have to pay 30% tax on the profit in Peru. Had you been living in the house as your main dwelling and as a Peruvian resident it would be 3% Hi PeruFan and Adrian, Actually, the scenario is not so bleak. One of the changes made in the...

Re: So many fake people?!? Hard to make friends or relationships

Hello guys, I am from Europe and living as an expat here in Lima, Peru. I´ve got like 3 straight years here in Lima and I´ve reached a point where I can´t keep this just for myself. When I first got here( driven by my work and the taste for adventure), I was hit by a boom of nice, friendly people, ...

Mayoral Race Lima 2018

I didn't catch the debate last night. Did any of you? Any thoughts on who "won" the debate? The front runners in this race, so far, are worrysome. Especially Urresti. A bright light on the horizon seems to be Muñoz. Remember, if you are in Peru on a Carnet de Extranjeria, you have the opti...

Hi Woodchuck,

Most expats who are interested in networking now gravitate towards social networks, particularly Facebook. Why not set up a local FB page for Huaral?

Re: Magdalena Del Mar

Roadrunner is right about the roads. It's pretty much the same story everywhere in the traditional burbs of Lima that were not designed for so many vehicles. So, yes, try to move close to where you'd like to spend a lot of your time. I was curious about the airbnb, since I have never used one in Lim...

Re: Magdalena Del Mar

Welcome to our forum! Like most of Lima's traditional barrios, Magdalena is in transition. Old family homes built in the 30's 40's and 50's are being razed to make way for 7 to 10 story apartment buildings. It's subjective of course, but I think it's a nice area with areas that maintain a real neigh...
