Buying Property South of the Border

Purchasing real estate in Mexico has changed dramatically over the past ten (10) years for foreign, non-Mexican nationals.  Beginning in 1994, the federal government of Mexico liberalized ownership provisions of all property within the constitutionally protected area known as the "prohibited zone".  Prospective buyers outside of Mexico's borders seeking to buy tourist housing developments, condos, and times hare proejcts, rustic industrial or urban property can now enjoy greater legal freedom and ownership rights as mandated and protected under Mexico's new foreign investment law.  In Mexico, as in the US, the transfer of real estate property rights are administered by federal, state and local laws.  Foreign nationals wishing to acquire property are subject to permission and registration with mexico's Dept of foreign Affairs.  This federal level agency is responsible for awarding the lawfully required permits and authorizations to purchase land in the Mexican Republic, as well as to acquire real estate properties or rights.
