When you know that the legal facts match the sales information you can make an offer and reach an agreement. After this agreement we will request other additional documentation from the seller and will check the status of local taxes, community charges, energy certificate, etc.
At the same time we will prepare the contract of sale and set a timescale to formalise the public deed of sale. Even though it is not a mandatory rule, when the private contract is signed, a payment on account is made. This payment is usually set at around 10% of the agreed price.

It is hard to believe but it is quite unusual to find a simple direct purchase without complications and, without guidance, even the the smallest of problems can create a lot of unease.

Properties with mortgages or unpaid local taxes and and community fees are minor issues as long as they verified and taken into account. However, differences in what is shown in the Property Registry and reality require more work to resolve. Problems range from illegally constructed property, annexes and pools built without planning consent to Inherited property that has not been formally transferred.

This is where our expertise comes in. We will look for any underlying issues and attempt to resolve them. The vast majority of problems are solvable but there are times when we will advise that you reduce your offer or even walk away from the purchase.
For us, communication is very important. While we expect to find issues with most purchases, we will normally solve them without involving you. But if you are in any doubt about any aspect of your purchase we want you to let us know so that we can investigate the issue and put your mind at rest. We like to give solutions not problems.

Our BASIC INFO will give you a good idea of the things it is necessary to do to prepare for the property purchase but, once instructed we will explain exactly what is required and what we will be doing in your specific case. 

We will also find out your desired timescale. The preparation of a purchase can be done quickly, in some cases purchases can be finalised in just 2 or 3 weeks.
On the other hand, you may wish to take more time, perhaps to get your funding in place or to coincide with an important date. We will always act for YOU and in your best interests. Before doing it quickly it is more important to do it well.
