What happened around here while I was in Mexico?
The women were not satisfied.
Lots of typing
You were gone?
Kind of my thoughts.
I assumed he left like all the other 1 hit wonders.
We cried ourselves to sleep every night worrying about you.
Not really. Now I have to put you on ignore.
The post Office, bought out UPS. Besides that, nothing much!
I'm going to Mexico in June. For two weeks.
Mod question: can I insinuate somebody is a DB without getting moderated?
You might have to re-think your retirement plans. The market dropped a little since the first of the year. Not sure 4.3 million will be enough.
Lol I just told my wife this db@g on browncafe is apparently back from Mexico.
4+ million in USD must be a least 100 million Mexican Pesos. You could live like the King of the Mexico with that money.
Wow, tough crowd!
Lots of snow for some folks. We failed at delivering Valentines this year. Same stuff, different holiday.
can you say Immodium AD ??
One of us got lucky.
Don't know if it's true, but a long time ago I remember reading where if you buy a house or lot in Mexico they can take it away from you......not like in the U.S. where you buy and it's yours.
Foreigners can own land in Mexico. If you find property in the restricted zone (within 50 kilometers of the coast or 100 kilometers of the border), you will need to apply for a fideicomiso. In this trust agreement, a Mexican bank takes title to the property. You, as the owner, will still enjoy virtually all rights, including using, selling, and naming a beneficiary to the land. In the interior of Mexico, you can own property in your own name. To do so, you will need to have an escritura (deed) prepared by a Mexican notary public.
The notary public will play a very active role in the purchase of land. In Mexico, all legal documents must be signed before the notary public to be legitimate. Ask yours to check that all debts and necessary payments have been made on the land. If you are purchasing land from a developer, have the notary public affirm that there are permits for development and construction included. Do not sign anything until you have a clear understanding of what the document says.
In addition, consider the following:
Avoid purchasing land labeled as “egido.” This is communal agricultural land and can be a legal headache. It is best to stay away from it.
Ask about water, sewer, and electrical connections. If these are not readily available, it can be very expensive to hook them up.
Check into city ordinances. Some areas, such as Cozumel, only allow construction on a certain percentage of the property and issue height limits.
Avoid getting wrapped up in “margarita fever” (initial excitement upon seeing the advantages of living in Mexico). Instead, take the steps one at a time. Do plenty of research, ask questions, and stay away from anything that seems suspicious to you. Pacing yourself throughout the process will help you find land you are ultimately satisfied with.
Yes but I can also say "agua embotellada por favor" and "No me gusta la comida Mexicana"
Separate names with a comma.
