The buyer has the right to appoint a substitute beneficiary who will receive all the rights and obligations that arise from the deed if the buyer dies. With this designation of substitute Beneficiaries, your heirs will not need to follow any probate proceeding before the Mexican courts, which would take time and attorney's fees. The substitute would only need to provide a death certificate of the original deed beneficiary and make pertaining changes to the deed at the public registry of properties.
If the buyer decides not to appoint any beneficiaries during this process, then, the alternative is to have a Mexican Will prepared to avoid expensive legal fees and probate at the time of death. Learn about Setting Up a Mexican Last Will and Testament.
