Considering the significant amount of money that is on the line, it is crucial when buying a property in Spain, to ensure that your property transaction is adequately protected by a reliable qualified Real estate Lawyer, who fully understands and abides by the necessary rules. (never hire a cheap “bogus unregulated representative”). This particularly rings true if you are buying a home for the first time in Spain.
« BZN Lex » offer a variety of property legal services either in purchasing or selling a home, taking the legal matters related to the purchase or sale completely off your hands.
This includes reviewing all legal documents, including the Agreement of Purchase or Agreement of Sale, planning permission, possible hidden debts or encumbrances.
Likewise, we’ll ensure property taxes are up-to-date and no claims are listed against the property. We’ll also confirm if there is a valid title and finally, we’ll calculate the stamp transfer duty tax and related costs that are due upon completion.
Furthermore, it is of the utmost importance, – before paying any money to the Seller, – to ALWAYS to double check very carefully the background legal situation of the dwelling. Distrust those greedy estate agents who might try exerting pressure on you in order to pay “blindly” a deposit in advance, because they are disregarding your interests, and they mindfully be trying to rip you off.
