The space is 10 x 10 sq. meters.

LEGAL: The property title law in Mexico is limited- Francisco Javier Garcia, the community’s (Los Ingenios) representative for the local ejido (land association) guarantees that the winner will be the owner of the property as described (10 x 10 sq. meters, in the south east section of La Semilla de los Ingenios).

There will be a contract signed by the community to “the winner” as represented by Francisco Javier Garcia, unless the winner is Mexican, the community will sign a contract directly to “the winner.”
