Our main goal is to provide first class services to all our clients and ensure a smooth transit when buying your new property. To simplify the entire process for you, we work together with local real estate agents, lawyers, tax advisors and notaries. Property purchases in Spain are governed by local legislation and the local taxation system, and conditions may therefore differ from other markets. Nevertheless, Spain is a country open to foreign investments into residential properties, and at present these can be bought by both natural persons and legal entities.

Among the services we offer are in particular:

Arranging personal viewing of selected properties
Preparing and verifying all documents relevant for the property being purchased (land register certificate, checking for potential encumbrances, verification of title deeds, determining running costs, etc.)
Preparing and verifying documents – reservation agreement, title deed, arranging signatures on contractual documents and registration of these documents in the Land Register, registering the client with authorities, reregistering utilities to the new landlord, etc.
Obtaining a Spanish tax number, the NIE (a tax number for foreigners) which is essential for the transfer of ownership
