Connell & Associates Staff Bios

Connell & Associates' US citizen attorneys have extensive and outstanding business backgrounds in Mexico, something that clients generally appreciate. Their business backgrounds allow the firm to properly identify and recognize the legal needs of the client in the context of the client's business activity, instead of these needs being determined outside of the real business context and in a legal "vacuum", as is the case with many other law firms.

FROM MLS VALLARTA & NAYARIT

Many people who decide to buy real estate in the Costa Vallarta region do so with the intent to rent out their property when they are not using it. There are a number of options to do so, ranging from taking care of it yourself or having a rental company do so for you. Doing it on your own can be demanding, especially if you aren’t in town to ensure the property is ready for the rental, provide access to the people who will be renting, and take care of any repairs or maintenance that need to be done before or during a rental. Having a property-rental management company takes away a lot of the headaches as they can do this all for you. They can also assist with the proper filing of any revenues you may generate with the local tax authority (SAT).

GENERAL OUTLINE OF THE NEW IMMIGRATION LAW OF MEXICO

 

In May of 2011 Mexico’s Immigration law was reformed. Some of the reform entered into effect immediately while other parts did not enter into effect until the corresponding Rules to the Law were published, which did not happen until the 28th of September 2012.
