Expat in Mexico Update - Renting a Home in Mexico and Why It's a Good First Step #287
Manage episode 340905763 series 1296083
In this episode, I will be talking about renting a property in Mexico. I will discuss some of the pitfalls and why you probably should rent for a significant amount of time before you decide to buy.
I am not a lawyer but I suggest you get acquainted with one if you plan to apply for residency and to review any legal documents you will be signing including a lease.
A lot of people assume that engaging with a lawyer will be expensive, but it is not, and decide to do this themselves. They often turn to Facebook groups looking for advice. This is an area where learning about other people’s experiences is valuable but getting legal advice is not. The legal advice you get is worth as much as you are paying for it. Nothing.
I learned a lot from my lawyer when he reviewed my first lease. You have to remember that what you know about property laws and your rights in the US has nothing to do with how it is done outside of the US.
