The Bank Trust Deed (Fedeicomiso)
Currently, foreigners who wish to acquire lands situated within 50 kilometers (31 miles) of Mexico’s coast must do so indirectly through trusts administered by a Mexican bank, or, in limited circumstances, through a Mexican corporation.
This does not impede foreigners from owning land in the coastal zone. It only imposes procedures that make the purchase a little more costly and requires more paperwork.
But don’t let this stop you from investing in Mexico and owning your own piece of beach front paradise. International investors who are looking for cost-effective alternatives to the high cost of housing in their local markets would do well to look to Mexico.
