Purchasing a property can be an exciting but stressful experience – buying overseas can create further uncertainties and present additional challenges, even for the most experienced buyer.
The Spanish property lawyers at BCP are experts when it comes to completing purchases of properties of all kinds throughout the Spanish mainland and islands. With significant sums of money at stake and serious consequences if things go wrong, having a trusted and experienced legal team to support you through this process is essential. Whether you are buying the property yourself, or are a solicitor acting on behalf of UK-based clients, we have the skills, knowledge and expertise required to ensure your transaction is finalised with minimum delay.
We can take instruction from the earliest stage of your prospective purchase. Our lawyers will be on hand to make sure that you are fully informed regarding your rights and obligations should you go ahead with your purchase, as well as carrying out checks on issues such as planning permission and licences that may be required in respect of the property.
Our lawyers are friendly and approachable and are available to meet with you to discuss your business with us in detail and to answer any questions you may have. We will take the time to review your options carefully, explaining everything in a manner that is clear, concise and jargon-free.
How our Spanish Property Lawyers Can Help
Our lawyers will carry out a comprehensive range of checks on the property so that you can be confident that there are no issues that could create problems further down the line.
We will obtain a legal report called a Nota Simple which provides essential information about the property including details about who owns it and any charges, debts or limits on how the property can be used. We will carefully review this to make sure that everything is in order before you decide to proceed with the transaction.
Our Spanish property lawyers can also verify that all building licences are in place and ensure that all documents required for completion are obtained. We will draft all contracts necessary upon completion, including preliminary contracts, the draft deed of sale and deeds of sale (called the Escritura).
Should any issues arise, our expert lawyers are excellently placed to negotiate on your behalf with the seller and their representatives. Finally, we will arrange for completion before the Notary at which time the purchase deeds will be signed, and the documents registered with the Land Registry.
