The main idea, said the president of AMPI Mazatlan, is to reduce the leasing fraud that occurs more in the port during vacation periods.

MAZATLAN.- The Real Estate Law of the State of Sinaloa could be approved this Tuesday in the State Congress, helping the sector to eradicate the bad practices and frauds that have been registered, especially in Mazatlan.  

Roberto Carlos Arellano Osorio, president of the Mexican Association of Real Estate Professionals of Mazatlan ( AMPI ), mentioned that Sinaloa would be the 21st state to have this Real Estate Law that, without a doubt, will mark a before and after in the quality of the service towards the investor.

“The main objective is to take care of the investments and assets of people who want to invest in the state of Sinaloa and Mazatlan and above all the certification of the advisor who wants to work in this beautiful profession,” he declared.  


The proposal already had a second reading in the plenary, therefore, the president of AMPI in Mazatlan hopes that the decision will be unanimously positive and will go to the Ministry of the Interior to implement it.  

Will there be any difference with the Law?  

Arellano Osorio answered yes, because this Law will make those who engage in bad practices in the sector more evident, because of 100 cases of investment in some real estate development, 25 percent have been fraud, in case they are reported.  

“We have seen bad practices, and fraud because when making an investment they are poorly advised. Of the 100, we speak of 25 percent of fraud, and we would have to be working with that law

We are trying to eradicate it,” he said.  

The builder also invited people who are dedicated to the real estate sector to approach the associations, to get training, advice, and certification in case they have not done so, and thus, provide better service to customers.
