We have a Dispenser Liquor License for sale that is currently active in Sandoval County, NM. This type of license allows selling package liquor or “to go” liquor, as well as liquor by the drink, provided it stays in its existing local option district. A transfer anywhere in the state is allowed subject to certain restrictions. The transfer outside the local option district will limit the licensee to sell and serve alcoholic beverages by the drink on the licensed premises. Please call 505-453-1040 for details. The sales price is below market value.
We also have a Rural Dispenser Liquor License for sale. This license is active in Socorro County, NM and cannot be transferred outside the County. The owner is very anxious to sell.
Liquor licenses in New Mexico are privileges controlled by the New Mexico Liquor License Control Act and interpreted by Rules and Regulations offering guidance, interpretation, or clarification of this Law. The Law is enforced by the Special Investigations Division of the Department of Public Safety. Ultimately, the administration of New Mexico Liquor Licenses is overseen by the New Mexico Alcohol and Gaming Division (“AGD”), a division of New Mexico Regulation and Licensing Department.
To buy a liquor license, a prospective buyer must locate a license for sale, enter into a contract with an owner of a New Mexico liquor license and then apply for approval by AGD for the transfer of ownership and location of the liquor license. The new owner must also agree in writing to assume full liability for all taxes due or which may become due from the business engaged in operating the liquor license. There are numerous issues which arise in the purchase, sale, or lease of a New Mexico liquor license, prospective sellers, buyers, and lessees of liquor licenses. This is a very complex and time-consuming area of law that requires special expertise by attorneys and other professionals.
