In order for those who are not natives of Mexico to find Mexico Beach real estate for sale or to own Mexico Beach Property in Mexico they should almost always use a bank trust to do so effectively. This type of trust is known as a fideicomiso ( which is pronounced fee-day-comiso) and helps to establish an irrevocable trust so that the buyer can act as both the director and the beneficiary. Without getting too technical, the U.S. Security and Exchange Commission and the California Department of Real Estate have ruled this trust to be the equivalent of a simple title, just like when you own property in the United States.
In this arrangement, when a person who is not a native of Mexico decides to buy Real Estate for sale Playa del Carmen, Cancun Real Estate, Puerto Vallarta in Mexico, a Mexican bank (otherwise known as the fiduciary) will have temporary ownership of the real estate property, but will also be subject to the direction of the foreign buyer (who is also known as the beneficiary of the trust). The foreign buyer then has the right to begin to use the property, to rent the property, sell the property, or in the case of death, to transfer the property along to his or her designated heirs. All of the proceeds from the land sale belong to the beneficiary of the trust who is also subject to paying all of the appropriate taxes.
It is very important to make sure prior to purchasing property in Mexico, but especially Mexico beachfront property for sale that you fully understand the ins and outs of this bank trust system because it will save you from making silly mistakes and will protect you in the event that you ever want to put your Mexico beach real estate up for sale on the open market.
