Merida, Yucatan — A prime piece of Centro real estate has been padlocked while authorities sort out its ownership.

The state attorney general secured a home on Calle 47, between 54 and 56, to protect the disputed residence. The property is across from a highly rated boutique hotel and a trendy coffee shop, and near several prominent restaurants that have awakened what was recently a quiet and unremarkable street.

The Investigation and Litigation Unit Specialized in Property Crimes of the State Prosecutor’s Office ordered the Directorate of the Public Registry to temporarily lock the site.

This closing measure of the electronic folio, which was requested last Monday by the complainant Juan Óscar Pérez Rodríguez, legal representative of the legal entity called Paternity Civil Association, guarantees that the Responsible Paternity building is protected from any change of ownership.

Owners of the property appear in the Public Registry as Joaquín Armando Fernández Peraza, Joaquín Fernández Barrera, Silvia Ivone Fernández Peraza, María Elena Fernández Peraza, Lidia Inés Peraza Pereira de Fernández, Lidia Inés Fernández Peraza, and Evelin Esther Fernández Peraza, and the only one with the right to use the property is Lidia Inés Peraza Pereira, widow of the owner, who has the deed and, who according to the complaining party, sold it to the Archdiocese of Yucatán years ago. Joaquín Fernández Peraza obtained an eviction order that was executed Feb. 7, according to Diario de Yucatan.

The one-story masonry house has a reasonably large footprint on a valuable piece of land. It is 11 meters wide and 55 meters deep, with 711 square meters of space.
