    Following on from my previous thread, I'm looking at a site for sale with a derelict house. It is pretty much a ruin with a roof, completely uninhabitable and unoccupied for many years whilst still being sold as a 'maison'.

    If I make the move to Mexico I'd like to do it by buying a house there. But that seems too risky when under a Temporal visa as they may not renew it for some reason. What have the rest of you done with regard to renting vs buying and when?
