Conveyancing Purchase

When you have found the perfect property we can help make sure it’s a trouble and stress free purchasing process.

We are an independent local legal service, with registered lawyers and multi-skilled staff, fluent in English and Spanish.

We deal with the vendor/s and lawyers for drafting a private contract to secure your purchase and to agree terms and conditions in compliance with Spanish Law.

It is common practice for the buyer to hand over a deposit to the seller in order to formalise the conveyance. We always recommend that before handing over any money at as a reservation fee you speak to your lawyer first. In your home country you would not consider handing over money, normally several thousand euros, to purchase anything without paperwork to back it up.

We also ensure the deposit is lodged safely with the vendor´s lawyer or another safe party involved in the purchase.

All the aspects and details of the purchase must be included in the sale / purchase contract (contrato de compra venta), which is signed by both parties before the new title deed is raised and Notarised.

All of our client’s rights must be clearly protected within the contract. As standard it should read that the purchaser will lose his deposit in the case of nonfulfillment of the agreed conditions, or if the seller is found to be non-compliant they will have to return double the deposit to the purchaser as a guarantee of the fulfilment of the contract.

As standard we review the current title deeds to see if any and all building works are included and that they were constructed with the appropriate planning licences ensuring you are purchasing a legal property. We also check to make sure there are no debts or charges levied against the property.

We are here to ensure your property purchase is legal, simple and safe.
