OWNING A PROPERTY IN SPAIN

SPANISH PROPERTY

POINTS TO KEEP IN MIND FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY

Lawyer in Spain

If you are the owner of a property in Spain, you should confirm whether the property is duly registered in your name at the corresponding Land Registry.

At the Spanish Land Registry you can find out the following fundamental aspects of your property:

1.- That the property is duly registered in your name.

2.- Description of the Spanish property, surface and quota in the community of owners. This quota will determine your contribution to the community and payment of your community fees.

3.- .Possible existing charges on the property, such as mortgage or embargo.

 

The Spanish property should also be registered at the Cadastral Office for rates purposes, which will regulate your payment of  IBI.  This will prevent the surprise of  finding pending IBI bills due to the non knowledge.

The property must have the corresponding license of first occupation granted by the Council of the municipality in which the property is located.  This license will indicate that the construction has been built according to the granted building licence to the promoter, the project submitted by the architect and urban planning regulations.

If you wish to obtain a report on the points mentioned, please do not hesitate to contact this leading law firm in Marbella.

Gain peace of mind knowing that your home is registered in your name and without any charges or IBI debts.
