Get Solid Legal Help
In the US and Canada, you may be able to get away with buying or selling a property with little or no legal help, but not in Mexico. You’ll need the services of a reputable local lawyer who will help ensure your interests are always protected.
He or she will write up the contract, both in English and Spanish, so you can be aware of all of the terms of the sale. They can also review documentation of the property and ensure there are no legal roadblocks toward the purchase. And, most importantly, they can help you set up an escrow account to protect your funds.
