Holding Title to your Property in Mexico

Posted by AdminGalvan on January 10, 2024

In Mexico, there are several ways to hold property, each with its own legal implications. Here are some common ways to hold property in Mexico:

  1. Direct Ownership (Sole Ownership): This is the most straightforward way to hold property, where an individual or entity holds the title to the property in their own name.
  2. Joint Tenancy (Copropiedad): Multiple individuals can hold property as joint tenants, with equal rights to the property. In the event of the death of one joint tenant, the surviving joint tenants automatically inherit the deceased tenant’s share.
  3. Tenancy in Common (Copropiedad en Indiviso): This form of ownership allows multiple individuals to hold a percentage interest in a property. Each owner can sell or transfer their percentage of ownership independently.
  4. Mexican Corporation (Sociedad Anónima): Property can be held by a Mexican corporation, allowing for limited liability and potential tax benefits. However, setting up and maintaining a corporation involves administrative responsibilities.
  5. Mexican Fideicomiso (Bank Trust): Foreigners looking to own property in the restricted zone, which includes areas within 50 kilometers of the coastline and 100 kilometers from the borders, can hold property through a fideicomiso, a trust held by a Mexican bank on behalf of the foreign buyer.
  6. Ejido Property Rights: Ejidos are communal lands granted to a group of people by the Mexican government. While not typical for private ownership, ejido property rights allow for land use and cultivation within the framework of ejido regulations.

It’s important to note that the legal and tax implications of each ownership structure can vary, and it’s advisable to consult with a legal professional or real estate expert in Mexico to determine the best option based on your individual circumstances.
