Amojonamiento required for purchasing land?

Good morning,

I’m looking to purchase a piece of land in Ecuador. I was told approx 10 years ago that the property boundaries must be newly documented and registered prior to any new land sales after the effective date of a new law referred to as an “amojonamiento”.

I was told the amojonamiento process usually takes several months, delaying the land purchase.

Can anyone elaborate on this?

Many thanks,
