If you are buying a property in Spain, there are a number of points to consider. Here we give you some tips for a secure purchase:

Choose an independent Spanish Lawyer:

we recommend not to sign the reservation contract before contacting a Spanish property Lawyer.

How do I choose the right lawyer?

Spanish solicitors should be registered  at  a Spanish Bar Association ( Colegio de Abogados)  and they have a number of registration of his Bar Association. They have  the right qualification to guide you through the process of  buying a  property in Spain.

What I need first :

Your solicitor will make the searches at the property registry for you,  to make sure the property you are buying is free of charges and encumbrances, so they will apply for a Nota Simple at the Property Registry.

The nota Simple is the document that provide important information about the property you are buying such us, who are the owners, if there is any debts attached to the property etc.

After signing the  reservation contract:

After signing the reservation contract, It is normally sign the purchase sale contract  in wich will be agreed the rest of terms and conditions of the purchase   such us,  obligations for  the buyer part and the seller part , date of formalization of the purchase sale Deeds etc.

Until the date agreed for the formalization of the Deeds, your property lawyer would be asking for the rest of the necessary paperwork to the sellers solicitor.  Notice, paperwork required it is different depending you are buying a property off- plan or a re- sale property .
