Legal Landlord?

Foreigners Who “Own” & Rent in Mexico….It’s Time to Get Legal!

Paradise”…..a land where life is worry-free and simple. We all seek a place where all responsibilities are left behind, where having-to is forgotten and replaced with not-having to. Many foreigners found this “Paradise” in the beautiful country of Mexico where they find pleasant surroundings, affordable living and a wonderful lifestyle!Several years ago the Mexican Federal Government made it possible for foreigners, non-Mexicans, to acquire the “rights of ownership” for properties in the “forbidden zone” opening the door to the coastal regions where many a foreigner has purchased his “Paradise”.

Many of these “property owners” partially subsidize their “Paradise” by renting their property to visitors in tourist areas who desire a vacation rental over the traditional hotel experience. The rental income helps offset the cost or “ownership” and provides a great incentive for having the property while also using it personally. All seemed well with this arrangement until a recent issue on rental income tax requirements began to surface. While the Mexican Federal Government welcomes foreigners to purchase the “rights of ownership” on properties in Mexico, it also expects the “owners” to abide by the Mexican laws governing these “rights”. The pressure is on to get these “owners” legal and paying taxes as the law requires.

Foreigners Who “Own” & Rent in Mexico….It’s Time to Get Legal!

I posted this article on a message board and someone named Buffalo Don didn't like it because it was from last year. I would be cautious of any landlord you meet by that name.  As foreigners we have to do our part and do it legally.

Police need conservation training

Tourist captures video of police throwing turtle eggs into the sea

It’s turtle season on many Mexican beaches, which brings thousands of sea turtles ashore to lay their eggs — and numerous thieves to steal them. But it’s not often you see someone tossing them away.

A tourist out for a stroll on the beach Las Brisas in Manzanillo, Colima, this week came across a municipal police officer doing just that, and caught the event on film. A second officer on the scene, on becoming aware of the visitor with his camera, ordered him to stop filming.

The cameraman replied that he was in a public place, had the right to film and offered that he intended to upload the video to Facebook. Meanwhile, as this discussion is taking place, the other officer continues to remove eggs from the nest, examine them briefly, and then throw them in the sea.

Hurricane Cristina effects the Colima coast

Large waves caused by Hurricane Cristina endanger the playas La Boquita de Miramar, Manzanillo, y El Paraíso, Armería. A number a beach palapas have been damaged as well as other ocean side structures. It seems 3 cocodrilos preferred the ocean over the lagoon and were seen swimming in playa Miramar.

Hurricane Hunter at Manzanillo airport May 5th

Colima, Col. - To generate awareness of the risks posed by weather events, the Hurricane Hunter aircraft will arrive at the International Airport Playa de Oro Manzanillo (ZLO),  from the United States.

The director of the National Water Commission (Conagua) in Colima, José Juan Michel, said the journey that makes the plane of the U.S. Navy shows the public the tools, equipment and instruments they have.

The general public may visit from 12 noon to 6 pm.

He said this is a very important tool from the neighboring United States, to promote the culture of the Civil Protection and to raise public awareness of what we are generating, and perhaps involuntarily, causing climate changes not only in the country but worldwide.

The 53rd Weather Reconnaissance Squadron, known as the Hurricane Hunters of the Air Force Reserve, is the only Department of Defense organization still flying into tropical storms and hurricanes – since 1944. The ten Lockheed-Martin WC-130J aircraft and crews are part of the 403rd Wing, based at Keesler Air Force Base in Biloxi, Mississippi.

** The Hurricane Hunters are part of the Air Force .... not the Navy

Colima 50 Centavo note

I found this bill posted on Colima Antigua saying that it was issued in 1914.   Google searching for more I found many denominations issued around that time from all over Mexico. The notes were issued during the Mexican Revolution. The Revolution caused the collapse of the Mexican government as well as the intervention of the United States.   I guess with all the confusion and doubt it was safer for each state or region to print their own money.   I'll let you study more if interested.
