Bank Trust - Fideicomiso
BANK TRUST INFORMATION Playa-Home Real Estate The Mexican Government created a legal instrument for permitting foreign investment in the tourist zones called the Real Estate Trust. Through the establishment of a trust, foreigners can hold the same rights to the land in question. If you decide to buy in Mexico, there’s no need to create a new bank trust. The property owner will transfer all of the trust rights to the new buyer. After the purchase, your home is recorded in the office of PUBLIC RECORDS OF PROPERTY along with your parcel number. Your realtor and a notary public will handle these transactions for you.

"FIDEICOMISO" UN INSTRUMENTO PARA LA INVERSIÓN EXTRANJERA EN MÉXICO Las leyes Mexicanas permiten a los extranjeros adquirir los derechos de uso de propiedades ubicadas en la costa y las áreas fronterizas del país a traves de un FIDEICOMISO, el único instrumento legal que garantiza a los extranjeros los derechos de propiedad ya sean residenciales, comerciales o turisticos. Este instrumento otorga los mismos derechos y obligaciones que un propietario normal adquiere al comprar un bien raíz. Instituciones que operan y legalizan Fideicomisos en México En México, los bancos son los únicos autorizados para operar los Fideicomisos. Se abre una cuenta llamada 'Fiduciaria' por medio de la cual se operan todas las operaciones relacionadas con el Fideicomiso, el dueño del fideicomiso o 'Fidecomisario' tiene todos los derechos de propiedad sobre un bien dentro de la vigencia del Fideicomiso.
