Customer Question
I'm a US citizen, my...
I'm a US citizen, my wife is Mexican and a permanent resident of the US. We live in Texas and my wife owns a beach condo in Mexico. We are renting the condo in Mexico for two months to a Canadian couple. We did a short term vacation rental contract. I was wondering what are our personal liabilities or risk of getting sue if something happens to the tenants while in the premises. I'm confused since we live in the US, they are from Canada and the property is in Mexico under my wife's name.

The law of the country where the property is located would control - so you may want to pose this question to a Mexican attorney. I'll contact customer service to have them redirect the question.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
