We will perform the due diligence, such as checking any planning infractions or charges that may be attached to the property.
Ensure that you have a bank guarantee when buying an off-plan property. Review and check that the square meters that appear on the cadastral plan and registry, coincide with each other and the actual square meters of the property. This is important; spoken words don´t count when buying a property. Written documents must coincide with each other and the actual specifications of the dwelling and these MUST be checked.

Check that the property that you are about to purchase has the appropriate water and electricity bulletins. This can be an expensive and time-consuming process after you have bought the property.

Ensure that all of the paperwork, including the “certificado de habitación” (habitation certificate) or the “licencia de segunda ocupación” (the license of second occupation) are in place and registered.

Investigate the payment status of the community of owners and ensure that there are no outstanding debts.
