Purchase through a “Trust” (fideicomiso)

  • The Mexican government allows foreigners to buy property through a Real Estate Trust. Since foreigners are not able to enter into contracts to buy real estate, they must have a bank to act on their behalf. The bank acts as trustee for the buyer of the property.
  • The advantage of the Bank Trust system is that the bank reviews all documentation to make sure that the transaction goes smoothly, and together with the notary they make sure all property is free of tax.
  • The usual time for a property trust is 50 years, but it can be renovated easily. If you want to sell your property, the trust can also be transferred. The cost of this trust varies from bank to bank.

It’s the safest way to acquire beach property in Mexico. If you require more information, send a message our way and our legal team will advise you every step of the way.
