Help needed - foreigner buying property in Mexico City

| Private Reply
Hi Everyone,

I'm posting this for a friend:

“What companies or organizations can help a foreigner buy a property in Mexico City? This foreigner only plans to visit once or twice a year and will not seek residency in Mexico at all.”

My friend is not the foreigner in question.

If anyone has relevant information, please contact me via PM.

¡Mil gracias!

' This foreigner only plans to visit once or twice a year and will not seek residency in Mexico at all.'

Staring September 1 this year, buyers and sellers of RE must have both a CURP and an RFC number, so without residency buying property is not possible.





If you didn't know how old you were, how old would you think you were?

Correct. The person in question will need an RT or RP to buy property.
Renting or leasing might be a better idea.

Thanks to Rolly and buffalodon for your responses. Probably not what my friend's friend wanted to hear, but now he knows what's what.

I heard about the new rule but something does not sound right, this would prevent all the resorts from selling condos to people who want to want come for a month and rent the rest of the year.
If I were that foreigner the first I would do is see a notario and ask him what the rules are for buying or selling and go from there.
