The question of money is asked regarding both the purchase and sale of a property during the home-buying process in Mexico. Explaining that we use escrow accounts (which is the norm in most countries) raises confidence on both sides of the transaction. We follow the processes of an escrow account. This utilizes an impartial third party, normally an escrow company. They are entrusted with the job of overseeing the transfer of ownership from the seller to the buyer according to the terms of the contract. The escrow agent holds the funds (including proceeds from your mortgage loan) until the legal closing begins. After the signatures are complete, funds are transferred and the process is done buying a house in Mexico. Normally, this happens the same day as signing the closing documents or the following, depending on wire transfer cutoff times.
The question of insurance arises. An insurance policy is used to protect you and your asset(s) against harm if something damages them. The policy pays out to restore you to your original state. Title insurance protects you, the buyer, against situations where the seller might not have the legal right to sell the property or other parties may have a claim to the property in the future. These unfortunate circumstances do happen in Mexico more than you might expect. Title insurance policies are issued only after an extensive title search is completed on the property. Title insurance is available in most places across Mexico. There are some areas where policies are not issued unless the developer has a master title insurance policy on the entire development.
During the process of making an offer, the question of a home inspection comes up. Home inspections are advisable in almost all purchases. They provide peace of mind and help you better understand any potential underlying issues with the property. If the inspector does uncover issues with a property, you will have the option of leveraging them. That means in the negotiation process as a leveraging tool or backing out completely. That assures you that you will not have post-purchase remorse by not knowing the ins and outs of your dream property and buying a house in Mexico.
