This article is part of our guide How to buy a house in Spain which you will find in our Real Estate Consulting section.
If you are going to buy a property and want to save yourself future problems, it is advisable to seek advice from a real estate lawyer in Spain. The savings far outweigh the cost of legal fees.
Buying a property is usually the biggest investment for most people. Even those who own several properties tend to invest cautiously in the property market. Real estate companies always use the services of lawyers before making an investment.
Ultimately, the services of a lawyer are often more useful for preventive rather than corrective purposes. But most people continue to hire them when it is too late.
Making the effort to find a good advisor can save you a lot of trouble.
How a lawyer can help when buying a home
Before entering into the purchase of a property, basic research and analysis should be carried out. It is important to check that the property is in order and that the contracts of sale and, if applicable, the mortgage loan, will not end up causing problems.
In addition, tax charges represent an important percentage of the operation. Together with the associated costs, they can increase the sale price by up an important percentage. Therefore, it is advisable to know this extra before getting a scare.
Registered lawyers in Spain
Any lawyer practising in Spain must be registered with the local Bar Association. They will have a registration number which you can apply for and check with the bar association.
Of course, registration does not guarantee honesty or competence, but it is a good minimum standard to insist on.
