Stewart Title Insurance

ISeveral laws have clarified the provisions for owning real estate in Mexico. Certain limits apply; natural and naturalized Mexican citizens and Mexican corporations may own land, and ownership carries surface rights only. Non-Mexican investors may own property in the interior of Mexico, with some restrictions, after registering with the Secretariat of Foreign Relations and meeting other requirements.

Foreign buyers of any real estate in the restricted zone acquire ownership in either a Mexican corporation for commercial properties or in a Mexican bank trust (fideicomiso) for residential acquisitions.


All types of property can be insured - residential, commercial and industrial – regardless of geographic location.


A title policy is the only monetary indemnification a buyer can procure to guarantee ownership of Mexican real estate.
