On this page we’ll be talking about due diligence. Do your homework! Buying property in Spain entails a lot of paperwork and it’s all in Spanish. (And if it’s not on paper it doesn’t exist!) You’ll need a competent English-speaking Spanish lawyer, of course. How should you select one? We’ll discuss that, too, along with what you need to do before signing anything, fees, taxes, insurance, etc. We’ll include a buyer’s checklist and a glossary, too.
Here’s Spanish-law expert David Searl’s video commentaries on these subjects:
