we can seek out your ideal property. We have the experience to answer

A LEGAL REPRESENTATIVE
legal representative, who should be fluent in your language, will
carry out the necessary checks on the property and complete the
legal requirements of the sale.
The first check is to obtain from the Property Registry a "Nota
Simple" which will identify the registered owner and provide
details of mortgages or embargos on the property
Receipts for payment of the IBI (Impuestos sobre Bienes Inmuebles),
the annual real estate tax, should also be obtained. These will
show the "Valor Catastral", the assessed value of the
property on which your property tax will be based upon.
If you are purchasing a new property, your legal representative
should ask to see the Declaración de Obra Nueva" and
the "Declaración de Alteración de Bienes Naturaleza
Urbana" as proof of legal requirements have been passed.
Receipts for community charges should be obtained where there
is a community involved. It would be a good idea to chat with
neighbours and other residents to identify any possible problems.
the price has been agreed and the "Nota Simple" has been
checked you will be required to pay a small holding deposit to hold
the property off the market in reserve until completion. Your legal
representative will prepare a formal offer and agreement for this
|After the formal acceptance of an offer and searches
have been completed, the exchange of private contracts or the signing
of an option to purchase will normally take place within three weeks
AT THE NOTARY:
|On the assigned date, both the purchaser and seller
(or their legal representatives) will attend the offices of the Notary
to sign the "Escritura de Compraventa" (the title deed)
which should state the property is sold free of charges, mortgages
and tenants. The Notary does not check the terms, as the legal representative
should have done so beforehand, but solely certifies that the parties
are in agreement. At this point the balance of payment is made and
possession passes to the purchaser.
