AGRARIAN LAW: Currently, the country is comprised of more than 50% of social property distributed between ejidos (common land) and communities; urban growth, population density and investment projects of any sector, including tourism, search out areas which are increasingly farther from the suburbs. The lack of awareness of the regulatory procedure, ejido and communal land have posed a greater risk for investment, which led the investor (many times) to be obliged to buy the piece of land more than once or, at the worst-case scenario, to lose their investment; thus, our firm has specialized in relevant issues in agrarian matters by providing our clients with legal certainty through preventative measures and dodging the corrective ones.

Within the areas we specialise in, we may find:

Speciality:
• Land audits which are under the social and private property legal framework.
• Negotiations with ejidos and communities, as well as with various internal bodies of the ejido and communities.
• Regularisation in alienating ejido and communal land.
• Regularisation of rights of way in gas pipelines.
• Technical and legal opinions, and identification of risk factors in investing on social property.
• Participation contracts in communal and ejido land.
• Usufruct contracts, tenant farming and metayage.
• Alienation of national plots.

Processes:
• Registration in the National Agrarian Registry.
• Deregistering of folios in the National Agrarian Registry.
• Registering and deregistering plot-of-land folios.
• Grading of ejido and communal assembly minutes.
• Registration of ejido or communal assembly minutes.
• Compliance with full ownership.
• Exhaustion of pre-emptive or preferential rights.

Litigation:
• At a national level, in all Agrarian One-Judge Courts with matters related
to article 18 of the Organic Law of Agrarian Courts.
