Mortgage Cost in Mexico

All costs need to be taken into account when purchasing a new home or remortgaging, so that you can produce an accurate budget, which will help to ascertain if what you are trying to achieve is the sensible way forward and actually achievable.

The cost of closing any real estate transaction is far more than just the purchase price. And, if you’re also acquiring a new mortgage there are additional expenses you should be aware of and understand. Some of these costs include items such as escrow; legal representation; lender fees; homeowner’s insurance; title insurance; property taxes, and sales taxes pertinent specifically to Mexico property purchases (not for refinancing).

Also, Mexico has its specific ownership laws governing foreigners owning real property and those laws vary depending on the proximity of the property to the ocean. Property ownership in these restricted areas carries additional costs and legal considerations.
