Question Time

It is always asked if foreigners can buy a house in Mexico and the answer is absolutely yes you can purchase a house in Mexico. The Mexican constitution says that no foreigner can directly own titled property within 50km of the coast or 100km of the border. If you are not a Mexican national and want to buy property in these restricted areas, it is done via a bank trust or Fideicomiso in Spanish.

Next, the most common question is asking about what a Fideicomiso trust is. The trust is a legal agreement where the buyer (beneficiary) has the right to use, occupy, build, improve, lease, and possess the property. The beneficiary may also instruct the trustee (the Mexican bank) to transfer the rights to another qualified buyer or bequeath the property to an inheritor. The initial term of the trust is 50 years and can be renewed for additional periods of 50 years indefinitely.

Lastly, we hear questions regarding the Mexican bank’s trustworthiness. According to Mexican law, property held in trust by a trustee bank is not an asset of the bank. If the bank is to ever have financial problems, the property is transferred to another trustee bank.
