Common Questions about Buying Property in Mexico

Be Informed About Mexican Real Estate Facts

Below are some of the most common questions we receive from potential property buyers in Jalisco and Nayarit. Question: What is the federal maritime zone? I just bought my home in front of the beach. Can anyone build in front of me? Answer: All beaches are public in Mexico. Beaches belong to the Mexican government for the use and enjoyment of all. No one can buy the maritime zone. The adjoining landowner to the maritime zone should pay the annual taxes on this adjacent land and should work to acquire the concession agreement to this area. Paying the annual small amount of tax for the concession in front of your land only gives you the first right to proceed with the concession agreement.
