Purchasing Property

Step by Step Property Purchasing in Spain

Spain, as a member of the European Union, has a robust title deed conveyance system that is applicable to everyone, whether they are local or foreign buyers. Purchasing real estate is a task that demands knowledge and expertise. Proceeding with professional assistance is essential for ensuring easy transactions of keys and property title deeds. The registry of the property takes 1 to 3 months time after you choose your home depending on the property.

TEKCE’s skilled sales agents will assist you in locating the ideal property that meets your needs. The company's experienced property lawyers will manage the due diligence and procedures with you or on your behalf, ensuring legal responsibilities are in order.

There are 7 easy steps to buying real estate in Spain, from finding the right property to getting your title deed.

Here is a detailed, step-by-step guide to the property acquisition process in Spain:

Detailed Real Estate Buying Process in Spain

1. Preparing a Wish List to Find the Right Property

Finding the right property that matches your expectations and necessities is essential. To do so, the first step is to prepare a wish list. It will be easier to find the best real estate while working with an expert real estate company.

Following your preferences and your budget, real estate agents pick a suitable location and lead you to the best property options. The agents will have no trouble finding the best options to meet your needs as they constantly follow market trends and advantages. TEKCE’s website features a wide range of properties, and the prices are updated daily, showcasing a broad portfolio.

2. Property Viewing Tour

You visit the properties after your agent has presented you with all the options. While at the viewing tour, asking your agent, the seller, or the developer any questions you have is important to prevent any potential issues from later on.

Thanks to TEKCE’s TeleProperty service, you can eliminate traveling expenses to see the property. TeleProperty gives you a chance to attend the viewing tour via video calls. We use your preferred online channels like WhatsApp, FaceTime, Skype, etc. More than 50% of our transactions are finalized through TeleProperty viewing tours.

3. Reservation

Once you have seen the house and decided you like it, the next stage is reserving the property and taking it off the market. Mainly prices are not negotiable at brand new developments. It can be possible for second-hand properties. If negotiation is possible, your agent will help you to get the best possible price.

4. Signing the Contract

If the seller and you agree on the terms of the sale, the TEKCE company lawyer will participate in the sales process. You make a reservation deposit of 5 to 15 thousand Euros and sign a reservation contract. Before purchasing the property, this contract will give you some time to finish all legal procedures.

After the due diligence, your lawyer approves and you sign a private purchase agreement (Arras Contrat) after completing the KYC (Know Your Client) process. You pay 20%-40% of the total price when you sign the contract under the lawyer's supervision. As this process may take some time, it is advised to give power of attorney to the lawyer to finalize the sales process on your behalf.

5. Getting the NIE number

For a brief overview of the legal processes that each buyer must go through, the first step is to obtain an NIE number in Spain. NIE Spain, or the "Number of Indentity of Extranjero," is short for a foreigner identification number. Any buyer from a foreign country has to obtain an NIE number. Your lawyer in charge will assist you in getting one.

6. Opening a Bank Account

Opening a bank account is a further essential step. You may manage all of your payments, including your notary payments, and finish your financial transactions. TEKCE collaborates with multiple banks, and our team ensures a seamless process for opening a bank account.

7. Registering the Title Deed

The final step before the property is all yours is the official signing of the title deed, which will take place in a notary. The notary will ensure that you completely comprehend all the contract terms. The notary will also make sure that you are aware of what you are genuinely signing and agreeing to with the seller. This stage allows you to get your keys to move into your new home. After the notary signature, the Title Deed will be registered at the Land Registry within 3 to 4 weeks, which is a self-running process. No further action is required, it will be registered on your behalf officially.
