If you are an investor, it is essential to consider how to hold your down payment or deposit during this important phase. At IBG, we offer escrow services that provide a neutral third party to hold funds following the parties' instructions. In doing so, neither party can access these funds until all obligations of both parties have been fulfilled.
Mexican lawyers, Notaries, or real estate agents are not authorized to hold "trust" funds. Neither of them could perform as an escrow agent. In Mexico, funds are irregularly held in the personal bank accounts of real estate agents, developers, or attorneys. These accounts are not insured and can be seized. Even if a broker or attorney holds those funds in good faith, creditors and the tax authority (SAT) can access these accounts. The accounts are not protected, as if they were with an incorporated escrow agent.
IBG Legal is a trusted law firm authorized to provide escrow services in Mexico and other parts of the United States.
