Buying in Mexico

How do foreigners acquire property in Mexico? As a General Rule, Mexicans and foreigners can acquire property in Mexico. However, for a foreigner to acquire property in Mexico in the so called "restricted zone" are some special provisions: The Mexican Constitution limits acquisition by foreign investors of real estate within the "restricted zone”, which is a strip of land extending 100 kilometers along the borders and 50 kilometers inland along the coasts of Mexican territory. In order to acquire Real Estate for Residential purposes, this can only be carried out through a Real Estate Trust called FIDEICOMISO in Spanish, with the prior approval of the Secretaria de Relaciones Exteriores (Secretariat of Foreign Affairs).
