companies have opened offices in Mexico and are
providing title insurance on Mexican properties:

is authorized by these companies to do title
searches and prepare legal opinions.
you choose to purchase Title Insurance, we will do a
thorough title search on the property you wish to
purchase, and we will prepare a legal opinion in
Spanish under title insurance company standards
ready to be sent to the title insurance company. As
authorized attorneys of the Insurance Company, we
coordinate all the steps with such company in order
to obtain the Title Insurance Policy.
As part of the title
search, our requirements include, among others,
reviewing of the title history and
making sure the title chain is not broken, checking
the status of property tax payments, checking if the
property has liens or registered legal problems, and
performing a visual inspection of the property.
