Welcome to our Jalisco condo blog!

The purpose of the “Jalisco Condo Manual” and the “Jalisco Condo Law in English” was to fill a knowledge gap about the condo law in Jalisco. The goal is to help condos run more smoothly, and to follow the condo law.

This blog is a way for us to give you updates and corrections to these books, to expand or clarify popular topics about condos, and to raise and talk about new topics that aren't covered in the books.

As always, this isn't legal advice. If an issue is important, I recommend you consult a Mexican legal professional. See our "Disclaimer" for more detail.

We encourage you to comment on blog topics! Please ask questions, and share your own experiences. All comments are reviewed. See our "Comment Policies" for more detail.

We also welcome comments and suggestions that don't relate to a specific post. Use the "Email Us" tab at the left to send us an email with your questions or comments.

I hope you'll find the books, the extra information on this blog, and the interactive comments helpful.
