And for the recond...

The reason I have decided to try and assimilate myself into the cute little mexican house is primarily monitary... true.
But the money that I save is for my casita, my 1st little structure, my fishshack.

Many areas do require building permits or used to. Fines are hefty for not getting one and you have no basis for capital gains tax (bottom line deduction) when you sell. Of course there always are those that don't follow the law regardless of what they are.

This is funny.
I actually went to the Delgado I think and asked the man there about it.
He seemed amused that anyone would ask.
When I mentioned it to neighbor he got angry at me and said I would pee everyone off if I got a permit.
None of them has a permit and they don't want the attention.

Building permits for the Municipality of Ensenada are issued by Catastro - Urban Development. Before permits are issued, you will need plans certified by an engineer/architect and may need a lot survey, clearance letters from the water department, street department and/or other government/private organizations.

If you are going to do it, do it correctly/legally

I am on the mainland, and I returned to the states this year via Baja ferry. Great trip but I did notice that hotels were about twice as much as mainland hotels and restaurant prices about 3 times more than mainland restaurants...My conclusion is since everything must be either trucked or shipped to this beautiful peninsula it costs more so if you are on a low end budget you can do much better on Mainland than Baja....

Poor guy writes knows nothing. My Town no building permits not one . Last Mayor here 5 years ago did try to impose fee of $200.00 Dollars . On every home here since none have a permit. He lasted 1 week not: seen again ture story. All homes here sold for cash no one cares about Cap gains.:)
