Buying a house in Spain

If you´re thinking of buying a house in Marbella, you should know the Spanish purchase process. In Spain the notary’s legal responsibility is very limited. Furthermore, because of the decentralized bureaucratic structure Spanish property law (conveyancing) can be rather complex. Buying a house is one of the largest investments in a person’s life and the consequences of any legal problems can be severe. Therefore it´s advisable to hire solicitor in order to conduct the very important legal investigation.

Lawyer´s responsibilities during the purchase process

All the legal work when buying a house in Spain can efficiently be carried out by a lawyer through a public power of attorney signed at the notary. Once the purchaser and vendor have reached a price agreement the responsibilities of the lawyer are as follows:

  • Reservation contract
  • Fiscal NIE number & Spanish bank account
