New Guide to Buying a Property in Spain Available Now


If you are thinking of buying a property in Spain but don’t know where to start, you may be interested in a new guide written in English called “Guide to Buying a Property in Spain”, which has been put together by the Spanish School of Property Registries, the British Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the International Association of Property Professionals (AIPP).

The document has been created in order to provide foreigners who want to buy a first or second home in Spain with the necessary up-to-date and correct information on the legal requirements and step-by-step details of the process that they have to go through.

The guide is based on the experience of British couple, Frank and Diane, who decided to buy a house in Spain to live in after they retire. It follows them through their journey right from the first step of looking for a property up to registering their purchase with the Registro de la Propiedad and paying the taxes at the end of the procedure.

It is full of tips, advice, warnings and information about the different legalities you will come across when buying a property.

As well as providing a whole host of useful information for foreign property buyers, the objective of the guide is to “guarantee confidence and legal security so that buyers feel protected and secure when taking the plunge to buy a place in Spain.”
