A reform to the State of Nuevo Leon’s Code of Civil Procedure was recently published in the Official Periodical of the State of Nuevo Leon that allowsparties to carry out boundary delimitation proceedings before a notary public, so long as no controversy exists among the neighboring property owners. If anyone of the neighboring property owners opposes the proposed boundary delimitation, the notary public must suspend his or her work so that the case may besubmitted for a corresponding proceeding before Mexican judicial authorities. The boundary delimitation proceeding is necessary when the boundaries of aproperty have not been fixed, or if such boundaries are not exact and must be corrected. Prior to the recent reform, the boundary delimitation proceedingcould be undertaken only before a Mexican judge. The new reform seeks to inject procedural efficiency into real property matters where no conflict amongneighbors exists.
