Buying a property can be a daunting process at any time, especially in a foreign country, but the good news is we are here to help you every step of the way, including a full after-sale service. Once you have found your ideal property and decide you wish to proceed with the purchase, you will have to pay a holding deposit to take the property off the market. This deposit is usually €3000 for an apartment and €6000 for a townhouse or a villa. This money is held in the Briteman Properties client account or can be held by your chosen lawyer. Your lawyer will then undertake all the necessary legal checks in respect of all aspects of the property and in the event that any legal problems are discovered your deposit is fully refundable. If everything is in order your deposit will be used towards the purchase price. A contract will be drawn up by your lawyer and the lawyer acting for the vendor and you may be required to pay a 10% deposit (less your initial deposit) with the balance payable at completion.
The buying costs in Spain can vary but your solicitor will be able to fully explain the process and provide you with a full breakdown of all the legal costs and transmission fees to register the property into your name and to give you the assurance that your purchase will be free of all debts and charges.
