Thanks for the reply. My wife is a Mexican citizen, so we won't have to go the bank trust route.
We're just trying to figure out if we can actually buy land in Troncones or Barra de Potosi. We don't want the Federal Government to come and say they own it. What are the steps necessary to prevent this from happening? My lawyer says there is nothing I can do. He says, when the Federal Government comes in they'll set a price and I'll have to pay.
Is he right or is it time to get a new lawyer?
