Buyers Guide:

Once you have decided to purchase a property, the process will follow these steps:

1.Deposit Contract: This consists of putting down a deposit with the vendor us, representing a small part of the purchase price, in order to confirm that you are interested and the vendor to withdraw the property from the market. I At this stage it is fundamental that you check that all is in order, that the property is free of all hidden charges and legal impediments, in order to transfer the property on the agreed terms. The deposit will be considered part of the purchase price in case you finally buy the house and it should be refundable subject to agreed conditions with the vendor.

2.Private Sales Contract: Once the legal situation of the vendor and the property is validated, the private contract will clearly state the identity of both parties, the description of the property, the conditions of the transfer, the price and its form of payment, the date of the signing of the public deed and the form into which the expenses and taxes from the sale of the property will be divided. From this moment onwards, the “sales contract” is legally binding for both parties.

3.Public Deed: To be considered the sale complete and for the new ownership of the property to be inscribed in the Property Registry, you need to obtain the registered title deed (“Escritura Pública”). This document is signed by the vendor and the buyer in the presence of a Spanish Notary who testifies the identity of the parties and sets out the principles of the sales agreement, including the description of the property, the price and form of payment.

4.Registering in the Property Registry. Once the corresponding taxes have been paid, the public deed will be registered in the Property Registry to make the sale public and thus completing the entire purchase process. From then on, only the buyer will be able to sell or encumber the property.

Due to make sure that all legal issues are properly taken care off in the right way, you should be assisted through the whole process by a Spanish registered lawyer.

Vendors Guide:

Advice for Sellers: If you intend to sell your property, you will incur in the following taxes:

Taxes and Expenses:

Capital Gains Tax if you have made a profit after expenses (technically this is an income tax).
Plus Valia – Municipal Tax on increase in land value (very complicated to work out, and depends on lots of factors)
Notary Fees
Legal Fees
Agency Fees

Preparing your property for sale:

•It is recommendable that the property is clean and tidy
•Make sure that any minor repairs have been carried out prior to putting your property on the market
•Keep kitchen surfaces clear and make sure your oven is spotless!
•If you have a pet ensure it is kept under control and preferably out of sight.
•If you using an agent leave the selling to the agent
•Make sure your property is fully compliant with the new law Decree 218. Ensure you have copies of your Nota Simple, Title Deed, latest IBI receipt, details of your community fees and proof you have paid them
•Prospective buyers will appreciate if you provide them with an estimate of your annual running costs

Advice for Landlords/Tenants:

Tips for Landlords:

• Make sure the property is clean and presentable and everything is in working order, renting is no different than selling, first impressions are often final impressions

• Whether the property is unfurnished or furnished draw up a complete inventory of contents and make sure it is signed by both parties at the contract stage

• In addition to the above state clearly what services are offered such as telephone, satellite TV and Internet connections

• Decide in advance whether you would like utility bills held in your name or the tenants. Ensure you take meter readings on the day the tenant moves in
• Decide on a good and trustworthy management company in advance to handle any problems or issues relating to your property. Tenants given a good service from the beginning tend to stay longer

• If your property is part of a community make sure your community fees are paid and up to date. A tenant who is suddenly refused entry to the indoor pool because you have not paid community fees will not be happy

• Ensure your contract with the tenant has been devised, or at the very least checked by your lawyer and that it is in Spanish

• If your property is brand new make sure your utilities have been connected (unless you agree with the tenant for them to do this) and that the property has been snagged by an expert

• Ask for copies of at least 2 references from the tenant

• Consider taking out insurance against the worst case scenario of a tenant not paying their rent

• Request payment by direct debit, it makes life easier for both parties

Tips for Tenants:

• Ask for the property to be cleaned prior to your moving date and check that all appliances are in working order

• Check the inventory before signing that it is correct

• Check what services are offered such as telephone, satellite TV and Internet connections

• Ensure you know who to call should you have a problem

• Ensure basic utilities have been connected and check whether the bills will be in your name or the landlords. If the bill is under your name check whether it is your responsibility to contact the respective utility provider for connection

• If the property is part of a community ask for confirmation that the fees have been paid

• Ensure the contract is checked by your lawyer

• Request payment by direct debit, it makes life easier for both parties
