Keeping things simple!
Once you have selected that great property in Mexico, and you and your agent have negotiated a successful offer… What is next?
How can you be sure that you are going to have a title to the property, and that it will be done properly?
In any country a real estate closing requires a thorough review of the title documents, the property tax payments, the liens on the property. If there are liens, if property taxes have not been paid, these must be taken care of and paid prior to transfer of title.
If the property is residential and is located in the “restricted” zone, a permit for a Mexican bank trust must be obtained, or arrangements made for assignment of the existing trust. A thorough review of the trust document is required in order to determine which is best in each case.
A major benefit of buying property through the Mexican bank trust is that you can name beneficiaries to succeed you upon your death. Naturally this selection needs to be done carefully so your instructions are clear and not subject to misinterpretation. Another important item: is property to be taken in joint tenancy or tenancy in common? The words have to be correct and understanding complete in your deed.
Are you aware that when you contact a Master Card agent about a payment to your account, that agent may be in the Phillipine Islands? Or South Korea?
Are you aware that Amazon.com has warehouses throughout the U.S., and that books and goods you order may be coming from almost anywhere?
