New Mexico considers water as its most precious and scarce resource. There are water rights in New Mexico dating back to the 1800’s. When buying land in New Mexico, it is critical to determine if the land you are buying has existing water rights included in the sale. Be aware that water rights can be sold with the property or separately. To break it down even further, water rights can be divided into surface water and/or groundwater.
