Even Mexicans are afraid of real estate deals in Mexico. There are so many nuances that can go wrong. You don't need a book, you need a guardian angel. Example - people I know bought a house in SC from Mexicans and put it in trust. Everything worked great - except the previous owners had a US$700 Telmex bill that wasn't cleared in the transaction - and could not get a telephone in the house until they paid the bill, which they didn't. A friend died recently - had not paid his bank trust or property taxes since 1995. Yes 1995. Imagine trying to sort out that mess and buy the house.
