Need Real Estate Agent and Lawyer near Santa Rosa, Calamba, Los Banos

Hello, I am a United States citizen who is currently living in the U.S., but would like to purchase/lease a house and move to the Philippines in the next year.

I’ve already visited Calamba City several times and feel that this is a place that I would like to live. In particular, I’m looking at places between Calamba and Los Banos, Mount Makiling and Laguna Lake. I am not interested in a townhouse or a condominium.

I need a buyer’s agent, real estate lawyer, and other assistance to help me with the process of acquiring and moving into a home near Calamba. I am already aware that directly owning property in the Philippines as a foreigner is not really possible, although there are alternatives such as long-term leases and forming corporations with minority ownership. I do not speak Tagalog, and will need help dealing with the legal, logistical, and local cultural issues.

I would appreciate a referral to someone who might be able to help me in these matters.

Thank you,
Michael

As a foreigner YO can't own land at all. You can lease some land build on it 25 years I think, maybe 50 maximum.but it's a minefield, the land might not actually belong to leaser, etc etc etc. You can form a corporation but you can only be a 40% partner, it is also illegal to form a corporation just to buy land, see anti dummy laws.
Just rent a house in that area for two years see if you actually like living here even, it's not for everyone. You have visited an area and like it bit visiting and living here are poles apart. Rent first, then if you still a happy bunny, consider buying.
