A: Your question was posted as a patent (invention) question for Pennsylvania. You won't find any good answers there. You need to ask the question again and say that your question is for "real estate law" for the US Territory of Puerto Rico (the territories are listed after the states). That will cause attorneys with the relevant knowledge to be shown your question.

Good luck. My understanding is that Puerto Rico has some informal practices with respect to land so you really need to get someone from Puerto Rico to address this.
