DO I NEED A LAWYER WHEN I GO TO PURCHASE A HOUSE IN SPAIN?

It is usual for the foreign buyer to just  contact the Real Estate Agency, which indicates that no lawyer  it is needed al all to carry out the management of the sale.

Although it is true that it is not necessary to use the services of an expert lawyer in conveyancing, it is also true that it is highly recommended,  since it is the only way to guarantee the safety of the operation.

An independent and experienced lawyer at real estate conveyancing  will advise you independently to the real estate agents, and with the utmost rigor and professionalism.

Although the real estate agency can be professional and serious, they may not fully understand all the requirements that are presented, such as payment of taxes to the Spanish Tax Agency, management of the Plusvalia, detailed study of the registration situation of the house, cancellation of pre-existing debts, cancellation of the mortgage that taxes the house, legalization of extension works, etc …

A lawyer will offer you all his experience and knowledge of the real estate sector;  as a general rule the commercials that work in the real estate do not know everything about the legal demands that come attached to the conveyancing of a property.  A lawyer is constantly kept informed and updated to better serve his clients.
