Buying or selling a property

buying or selling a property



The importance of seeking independent legal advice when purchasing a property overseas cannot be overstated. Poveda Vicedo has extensive experience in all aspects of Spanish Property Law and Conveyancing. We provide comprehensive assistance and advice to our clients so that they can avoid pitfalls and we help them navigate through what might otherwise be a difficult and time consuming process.

Pre-contract Enquiries

When purchasing property it is essential that all the necessary pre-contractual checks are made in order to ensure that the property has the correct licensing and planning requirements and that there are no hidden debts or charges affecting the property.

Do as you would do in your own Home Country

In particular, it is vital that the purchaser is aware and acts in the same manner as they would do in their home country. By so doing the purchaser will take the proper steps necessary to prevent avoidable loss and hardship. Our clients are given 20/20 vision through our comprehensive services and client care.

From Reservation Contract, to Purchase Contract to the handing over of the Keys at the Notary

Poveda Vicedo will be able to assist you with pre-contract enquiries, deposit or reservation agreements, purchase contracts, building contracts, obtaining or preparing title deeds, carrying out full searches at the local town hall as well as with all other matters that come hand in hand with purchasing a property. We can also co-ordinate with your mortgage lender here in Spain or in your home country. We give the client the optional service of connection of utilities and putting Spanish Wills in place.

Option to Grant Power of Attorney if you are Overseas

The granting of a Power of Attorney is another optional service offered by Poveda Vicedo, which has the benefit of saving the client having to come personally to Spain at each and every part of the purchasing process. We can arrange for you to grant powers during your visit to Spain or at home at your local notary public’s office. Such powers can be general or specific and in all circumstances may only be exercised following the clients written instructions.

Thorough and Comprehensive Service

We believe that our thorough and comprehensive service will give you the best opportunity to buy a property in the most secure way possible.

As a general practice law firm we will be on hand to assist you in other aspects of your ownership experience here in Spain well after your property purchase has been concluded.
