A: Yes, there are certain procedures a foreigner must undertake. Owning property in Mexico is easier and safer than ever, due to established new legislation and well defined rules regarding non-Mexicans owning land in Mexico. These rules are in place to protect ownership rights and to promote the sale of real estate to foreign investors. The mechanism is a safe, established and perpetually renewable Mexican Property Trust called a "Fideicomiso”. Foreign buyers also have the opportunity to form an LLC for Ownership (an offshore company) that can own the property, if best suited to their needs.
