  1. I'm looking for notary in SJC or Jocotepec. Not sure anyone is operating out of those communities. But please don't recommend anyone in Chapala. Got the runaround from 3. Not returning there. Thank you aheadnof time for phone numbers and locations. I speak enough Spanish so no problem with that.
  2. There used to be 1 or 2 US notaries at the Lakeside. Can anyone give me a lead as to if there are any now? I'm selling a house in the US and can't get back for closing.
  3. Can you give me current information on the Consulate notary and when they come to either American Legion or LCS in Chapala? Thanks (also current price for a notarized document)
  4. 2017 New Year, Higher Real Estate / Notary Costs and Vehicle Fees With 2017 almost upon us there are some changes in the state of Jalisco that will affect many people. For automobile owners the annual renewal fee will edge up to 456 pesos if paid in January, 481 if paid in February, 507 pesos after and if you wait a few more months fine will be added. Smog checks have been mandatory but been largely ignored. One proposal was to have cars that were not complying towed on the spot and many complained that it would be unfair and allow widespread abuse and corruption. The current proposal is to expand the deadline up to 3 months BUT have an automatic fine generated and the vehicle blocked in the system until the fine is paid, not even allowing the smog check to be done until the fine is paid and if the fine is paid there will be a 20 day period to get the smog check or else be blocked and fined again. For example, if your plate ends in the number 1 under the current system you need to get the smog check done in January, under the new system you will be able to have it done in January, February and March but if you wait until April 1st then you will not be able to and have your registration blocked and a fine added. Real estate closing costs and other notarial acts will also edge up, the tax on legal affairs or Impuesto Sobre Negocios Juridicos will rise from $290 pesos to $1,000 pesos. The fees to register documents at the Public Property registry will have the minimum charge rise from $424 pesos to $1,000 pesos. Also the State of Jalisco is moving away from pegging fines to the minimum wage. There is a new index that currently is the same as the minimum wage but is called Unidad de Medida y Actualizacion. It is the same thing but now they can raise the minimum age for certain people or occupations to improve the standard of living without raising fine and penalty amounts at the same time.
  5. I recieved this via email on Monday... On Monday, August 29, 2016 4:30 PM, "ACSmessages@state.gov" <ACSmessages@state.gov> wrote: The U.S. Consulate General in Guadalajara would like to inform U.S. citizens about a change in payment method for consular services provided during our monthly visits to the American Legion and Lake Chapala Society. Effective immediately, we will no longer accept payments from CI Banco. Consulate employees cannot accept cash or credit card payments during our off-site visits. Beginning with our next visit on September 7, 2016, we will accept only peso-denominated bank checks. We have confirmed that the Banamex branch in Lake Chapala can issue those checks. It is very important that the checks be made out to “United States Disbursing Office” or they will not be accepted for payment. The Banamex Branch is located at the following address: Av. Francisco I Madero 222, Col. Centro, 45900 Chapala, Jal., Mexico Tel: 376 765 2271 The current price for an adult passport renewal is 2035 Mexican pesos. The current price for a notarial seal is 925 pesos. (Documents requiring multiple seals will require additional payment. For example, a document requiring three notarial seals would require payment of a total of 6105 pesos.) Please note that the exchange rate is set by the Embassy, currently 18.5 pesos to the dollar, and will not usually be the same rate that can be obtained at a bank or currency exchange facility. As such, please check with us to confirm the current rate of exchange.
