Choosing the same lawyer as the seller of the property
Hiring the same lawyer as the seller will give the lawyer a greater chance to make a profit on your purchase.
To prevent misunderstandings and loss of communication, we recommend seeking advice from a lawyer different from the seller’s lawyer. It is also very important that your solicitors speak English.
Get advice from your lawyer before making a reservation or deposit on the property. The initial stages of the process might expose irregularities, so it is important to have a lawyer who can help you make decisions.
In property conveyancing in Spain, it is of the utmost importance to choose a law firm that has lawyers, tax advisors, and architects who are in communication with each other so that you have a study from all possible angles.
Remember to look for a lawyer who represents your interests and will negotiate the best deal for you.
Real estate agents usually try to encourage a fast and emotional buying process. We suggest working with different agents to compare their offers and analyse their behaviour. Check for significant differences in the price of a square metre in the same area.
Another mistake made when buying a house in Spain is failing to choose a local real estate agent. A local realtor will know the local market and can help you negotiate with the seller to get a fair price. Since local realtors usually collaborate with other agents in the area, they can also inform you of other offers on the property.
Keep in mind that real estate agents are not qualified to assist with legal, tax, or immigration matters.
