Hey, I'm an Aussie that wants to buy land or a house in Ecuador, is it safe, how do I protect myself, and where should I engage a solicitor for conveyancey - here or South America itself?

Are there un-buildable lots? I have read up on a similar question
but that was about how expensive the known-to-be-buildable lots are. My question is if I see a lot listed that is "virgin" vacant never had a srtucture on it, how likely is it that no one could build on it? [more inside]

We are house-hunting in the Seattle area. Looking at property with water views. Willing to pay the higher price that comes with a view. But I'm reading some horror stories about how a neighbor will build a tower in front of your view, or neighbors who refuse to trim their tall shrubs. And then your view is obscured and your property value drops.
How do I research this? How can I know if the viewshed is protected or not? What sort of monitoring would I need to do over the years?
I will ask my realtor to research it, but I'd like to hear from people with experience with this issue.

After 14 years living in our small farm house a once-agricultural town in Connecticut our family has had to move on. Despite the markets leaning we did make a profit and would like to reinvest it as quickly as possible. As far as what we desire out of a location, we wouldn't like to go any farther north but have no real desire to stay in the state and would consider moving out of New England for the right reasons.

Buying property in the country... Benton County
