Spanish term or phrase: inscrita en el partido de Alajuela
From a Costa Rican real estate deed:

...'la finca numero xxx, inscrita en el Partido de Alajuela, tomo xxx, folio xxx, asiento primero, que es terreno para construir, sito en en Distrito trece, canton primero'...

My first thought was to translate 'Partido' as 'District' and to assume that it just meant it was recorded in the appropriate registry for that district. However, on encountering 'distrito' in the following clause, I have a problem.

If Partido does refer to a geographical/political delineation, then what is it, if not 'district'? or does 'partido' actually refer to the record itself?

Thanks and apologies for the lack of accents (unfamiliar computer)

Explanation:
It's just a question of looking for a synonym that doesn't clash with other classifications in my experience.

I'm almost certain this refers to a territorial division, a "judicial district" or "judicial division" if you will.

Here's a previous kudoz question on it, with an entry from Carl Stoll in Costa Rica:
http://www.proz.com/kudoz/spanish_to_english/law_general/396...

And here are a couple of extracts from the "Ley del Notariado" in Costa Rica:

Corresponde al Secretario:
1°- Marcar diariamente, durante las horas de presentación, en cada uno de los documentos presentados, correspondientes a las Secciones de Propiedad e Hipotecas, el número de operaciones que contiene, y, con respecto de la primera de dichas Secciones, el Partido o Partidos a que pertenece.
...

Artículo 25- De los ocho libros que forman el Registro de la Propiedad, siete serán respectivamente para cada Partido de los que componen esta Sección, a saber: San José, Cartago, Heredia, Alajuela, Guanacaste, Puntarenas y Limón. En el octavo se inscribirán los arrendamientos en la forma que ordena el artículo 70.

agree  Charles Davis: Division, yes; but not region. See discussion note. I think Partido de Nicoya is a red herring here. // Yes, it is, which is what threw me, but not in modern Costa Rica. No references at all to territorial partidos in CR (Nicoya is historical).

  -> Thanks, Charles. Still not sure though. A "partido" is usually a judicial district/division rather than an administrative one.
