Buying Real Estate in Mexico 2018 With a Fideicomiso

Yes! You can obtain property rights in Mexico including coastal and border areas through a Fideicomiso which affords foreigners all of the rights of ownership they would find in Canada and the U.S…the right to use, enjoy, lease, improve, mortgage, sell, inherit and will the property.
As a foreigner, you can acquire property in Mexico through a 50-year transferable Real Estate Bank Trust called a “Fideicomiso.”  This trust is provided specifically for non-nationals, and it is the ONLY legal way for Foreigners to acquire residential property for personal use. 
The Mexican Government via Mexico City issues an SRE permit to the Mexican bank or private federal leasing company that we opt to work with, and a survey, an appraisal, and No-Lien certificates for the property are reviewed by the Notario Publico. The property is then delivered to that Mexican bank which is then authorized to act as the trustee designating you as the beneficiary of the trust. The bank acts like an employee of the beneficiary (you) in all transactions involving the property. The beneficiary (you) retains the use and control of the property and makes all decisions concerning the property.
Some people have chosen to accept title through a Mexican Corporation, thereby holding title as Mexican entity. Technically if you are purchasing property as an investment (i.e. rental property, multiple properties, a partnership, or future development) you should hold title through a corporation. Many foreigners have been told that by holding title through a Mexican Corporation, you can save time and money vs. a fideicomiso. What is not disclosed is that a Mexican Corporation is legally obligated to file taxes monthly, with the filing done by a certified Mexican Accountant, among other obligations. Also, holding title through a corporation significantly changes your capital gains taxes should you decide to sell the property. Please consult an accountant or attorney to discuss the best options for your tax situation.

A real garden paradise!

On the outskirts of the sleepy little village of Bonfil, we find a garden paradise. Casa Paraiso is an oasis nestled between the mesas and the plains. On over 1/3 of an acre, with unlimited water, are palms, mangoes, mandarins, oranges, passion fruit…all surrounding the turquoise waters of a pool and huge palapa. The house is spacious, with 4 bedrooms. The master is upstairs with views out to the ocean. This home has been built over a number of years with a growing family in mind. There are 3 full bathrooms in the house, and a fourth out by the pool. As a bonus, there is a workshop/storage commercial location at the street side of the property for your home based business.

This is Casa Paraiso, where you can leave the bustle of civilization behind and still be less than 15 minutes drive to El Centenario, and 30 minutes into the center of La Paz.
