Residential Trust

My Trust Riviera Maya

Buying a Property as a foreigner

Actually, foreigners can acquire property in Mexico in their name, with an exception. Article 27 of the Mexican Constitution established a «restricted zone», defined as the area within 100 kilometers from the international borders and 50 kilometers from the beaches. Property within this zone is not available to foreigners in the usual manner. To acquire property within this zone, foreigners, either natural persons or foreign companies must establish a Residential Trust.

Trusts have been providing legal security to foreigners for more than 30 years. They are a safe, legal, and common way for foreigners to own property within the restricted zone. With a trust, you have the legal rights to sell the property, rent it, live on it, and even designate heirs who would inherit the property.

Currently, a residential trust is valid for 50 years after which they can be renewed. At MyTrust Riviera Maya, we have the experience needed to create a new trust, renew existing trusts as well as add or change the beneficiaries and even dissolve the trust when the client naturalizes as a Mexican citizen.
