Property in Spain
The process for completing the purchase is relatively straight-forward. However, due to a number of important differences in the Law of Property between other countries and Spain it is crucial to follow the process laid out here or risk jeopardising one of the most important purchases many people are likely to be involved in.
Realistically the first step is to hire a professional who can guide you through the process and ensure that all pitfalls are avoided.
Please be extremely wary of accepting the recommendation of the estate agent as they are primarily interested in the sale going through and gaining commission rather than ensuring due diligence on behalf of their client.
