How To Lose Your Entire Investment In Mexican Real Estate - Buyer Guide - Investment Property - Mexico - Real Estate

Purchasing real estate in Mexico requires some very specific steps to ensure that you do not lose your investment. One of these critical steps is properly registering legal title through a Mexican bank trust (fideicomiso). In this article from JD Supra, Mark Raven and Christopher McDonagh from the law firm Raven, Clancy & McDonagh describe what can cause you to lose your entire investment in Mexican real estate and what steps you can take to avoid this fate.

It is all too common for buyers of Mexican real estate to pay all or a significant part of the purchase price before receiving properly registered legal title or Mexican bank trust (fideicomiso) rights to the property.  Many buyers mistakenly believe they are fully legally protected because they have a signed (but unregistered) “purchase contract” or “promise of trust agreement.”
