    Question: Transfer Title Of Apartment

    Hi everyone - my husband's family owns an apartment in Recoleta, and we want to transfer the title to my husband's name. I'm not sure if we need a lawyer or an escribano - either way, can anyone recommend someone who can handle the paperwork? (Spanish or English speaking, doesn't matter).

    Potential new expat needs advice

    Steve - also, just to clarify, I'm not asking for strangers' opinions on my relationship. I'm asking for the opinions of expats on what it is like to live in Buenos Aires. As I mentioned, all I seem to hear on this message board is people complaining about long lines and other things. But you...

    Potential new expat needs advice

    I appreciate all perspectives. But, why do the two of you live in Buenos Aires if you hate the long supermarket lines and all of that? I just don't see long lines and empty ATMs as legitimate reasons not to move somewhere. No doubt they are annoying, but New York has its annoyances too. I'm...

    Potential new expat needs advice

    Hi everyone, I posted on here a few weeks ago because I received a job offer at a law firm in Bs As and am considering taking it and moving from NYC to Buenos Aires in January. I'm coming back to Buenos Aires on September 24 for ten days and then need to make a final decision on this job offer...

    Best resource for finding shared apts

    Hi all - What are some resources for finding long-term rooms to rent in shared apts or houses? I have looked on craigslist but are there other places? I'm open to living with expats or locals, it doesn't really matter. Thanks!

    NYC to Buenos Aires - question on cost of living

    Guys I still don't understand what you think I'm marketing? If this were a marketing ploy, it would be a bad one, don't you think, as there are no products or services advertised here. I haven't even stated what kind of lawyer I am so I hardly think I'm trying to attract clients (that being...

    NYC to Buenos Aires - question on cost of living

    What in the world would I be marketing? I haven't so much as mentioned a brand or company name in this thread. Also, I did not say that I was being transferred. I wish! I want to move to Bs As so I did my research, got interviews, flew down to meet with various firms, and got a few job...

    NYC to Buenos Aires - question on cost of living

    Also I should mention that the fact that there are other economies that are strong that I could be working in is kind of a non-issue. I used to live in Switzerland and could probably have an amazing job there in a minute if I really wanted to, but I don't want to go back there for several...

    NYC to Buenos Aires - question on cost of living

    OK here goes another question, and I may start a new thread about this - could I be making more than 10,000 pesos if I start looking for in-house positions at international companies, or is 10,000 about as good as it gets for someone my level (i.e. 4-5 years experience as a lawyer). For...

    NYC to Buenos Aires - question on cost of living

    Why is everyone on this board so skeptical? People come with legitimate questions and get interrogated about whether this is "real" or that things don't "add up." I have a boyfriend in Argentina and while I do love him and think he is fantastic, we have never lived in the same city together...

    NYC to Buenos Aires - question on cost of living

    It's about 70 m2. In any event I think I want to rent a room and live with roommates my first year in Buenos Aires so that I can meet some people and make friends. I think that's doable in Palermo area. If I'm way off base please let me know.

    NYC to Buenos Aires - question on cost of living

    Yes, I have had an interview and have met my boss and coworkers in person. I'm actually going back to BA next month to tour the firm again and meet with more people before making a final decision. In response to salgueiro, I do think rent is about 1/5 of what it would be in New York. For...

    NYC to Buenos Aires - question on cost of living

    This is definitely real. It's a little crazy, but after all money does not buy happiness. As for rent, I'm only looking for a decent 1 bedroom in a nice neighborhood and with some basic appliances, dish washer, laundry, etc. I don't need a two bedroom and I don't need to live in the height of...

    NYC to Buenos Aires - question on cost of living

    Hi all - I'm contemplating a move to Buenos Aires in January. I have a job lined up that pays 10,000 pesos per month and I have about $US40k in savings to help me through tough times. The company is sponsoring my DNI and taking care of everything. But, my question is, is 10,000 pesos per...
