A…Merida and the Yucatan has consistently been one of the safest places in the World and rated the same to live. This Area has little or no crime, most crime in this area consists of theft of belongings in view and left unattended.

A…Yes there is and most likely open later than most back home. Now keep in mind the stores locally won’t look like your corner “Seven Eleven” Yet but they serve the same purpose and just a short drive down the road you will find North American style stores waiting for all your needs and more.

A…We have also been toying with the Idea of having our “Own Store” On site for basics.

Q…Tell me about Services at Neek Kaan such as “Telephone, Cable, Internet or Satellite ??

A…First all these two services will be “Roughed-in” to each unit . ( Phone and Satellite TV )  The best option in this area is still the use of a Cell Phone, We will not be providing Satellite TV services but this will be available locally by the service providers.

We are working on the Idea of having a “Wireless Network Service available” for all Neek Kaan owners and operated out of a Wireless network” Located in our Administration Office. This can be part of Common monthly expense/condo fee’s or a completely “User Pay” Service.

Q…Is there a parking spot Available for each Condo Unit ??

Q…Tell us more about the Contracts to be Signed ??

A…Once you have decided to proceed with the Purchase of your Condo Unit, We will then gather basic Information off you to Create your Purchase Agreement and Contract.

Your Contract will then be sent you in Both Spanish, to make signing this contract Legal In Mexico and a Translation Copy for you in English will be provided.

At the Same time we will request Information off you to create your “Trust Agreement” which is the official way to Purchase Property in Mexico.

A second Option is available, Forming a “Mexican Corporation” but ideally only used for those looking to later conduct the purchase as a Business or run a future business in Mexico and use this property as an asset of this new Corporation. Note this greatly changes the Taxes payable to the Government at a later date should you wish to sell. We recommend talking with an Accountant in Mexico before considering this process.

Q…Are there any restrictions on me “Renting” out our Suite in the Future ??

A…No none, in fact Neek Kaan is in negotiations with Property Management companies arranging to put together a complete package to Assist Neek Kaan property owners and will post more information in the near future.

Q…Price Increases…Why do we see a continue Increase in Prices throughout the Building Process ??

A…With the Building Boom being experienced throughout the Yucatan Gulf Coast area, Both Quality Trades people and Materials are continually under upward pressure. Another Influence Is the USD in which our Project is Priced. The USD is also under a devaluing pressure against the Mexican Peso and with the very fine Profit margins Neek Kaan operates under, on any given day we can see a large percentage of profit disappear so prices are adjusted as needed.

Neek Kaan and it’s Management is dedicated in offering you a Quality Product at the Best possible Price.

 Q…Can we buy a Neek Kaan Condo unit without ever seeing the Project ??

A…Yes you can and we appreciate the Trust some of our customers have in Neek Kaan by doing so.

We still recommend you coming down and pay us a visit, Neek Kaan and it’s “Official Representatives” will be only too happy to help you with all your arrangements Including Hotel accommodations to make you comfortable while your with us.

Q…Once we come down and wish to Proceed with the Purchase, do we have to make this trip again to sign legal papers regarding our Purchase ??

A…We know…time is money and flying down here unless you are ready to take a holiday can be time consuming and Expensive, This is why we are arranging to have a “Power of Attorney Service” made available for purchasers of Neek Kaan.

This Service will be made available in the near future through  Yanue Gongora Lopez Official Representative of the Neek Kaan Project at hand length through our Notario “Ricardo Santos” We estimate the costs for Yanue’s services at $ 250 USD,
The cost of having the Power of Attorney “Witnessed” by an legal representative of a Mexican Consulate averages $ 120 USD making this an affordable alternative.

For your Protection this Power of Attorney will be given with your instructions to our Notario Ricardo allowing Yanue to sign papers you have agreed need to be signed on your behave. Please Note: Fee’s will be associated with this Service.

Q…We really don’t know who Neek Kaan and the developer are, so sending money scares us.  What assurance to we have and if there a way to 100 percent protect ourselves??

A…We Totally understand, most of our clients send us funds via money wire Directly and this is perfectly safe.

If you have doubts on sending us your money direct, one of the options available to you, is to create an  “Escrow Account” with Steward Title Insurance.
Cost of this Account is Approx: $ 650 USD
