The procedure for buying or selling a property in Spain is quite different to the one in the U.K. and it is for this reason that it's important to have a totally independent Spanish lawyer from the other parties representing your interests at the transaction.

The main aspects of the conveyance are:

  • General advice to you about who should be made the legal owner of the property to minimise tax and inheritance problems.
  • Advice about 'declared values' and 'black money'
  • Advice about your liability to taxes and other expenses in connection with the purchase.
  • Obtaining proof of ownership from seller
  • Where appropriate, obtaining proof of planning status from seller
  • Where appropriate, obtaining documents about any 'Condominium' or 'Community of Property Owners' from seller
  • Land Registry check to establish the current ownership of the property
  • Checking that the property will, under your contract, be sold free of mortgages, charges and debts or advising you of any restrictions to your contractual rights to unimpeded title
  • Where appropriate, checking the property benefits from all necessary guarantees.
  • Obtaining the bank guarantee of the amounts you paid the developer
  • Examining all of the documentation supplied to us
  • Arranging for the completion of the purchase by the signing of the necessary Final Contract/Deed of sale
  • Arranging for final searches to be carried out to ensure that the property remains free of debts and charges up to the point of sale to you
  • Arranging for the payment of the fees and taxes due in respect of your purchase
  • Arranging for the registration of your title at the Local Land Registry.

If you have assets in Spain, we recommend that you have a Spanish Will as in the case of death the probate for your Spanish assets would be both quicker and cheaper. We can advise you as well on all of your inheritance matters.

The NIE is the Spanish fiscal number for non residents. It is always required when you have to sign the title deeds of your property.

If you have to sign your title deeds in a short period of time, we can assist you in obtaining the NIE number from England in 2 to 3 weeks.
