How can I buy a house in Spain?

1. Signing Power of Attorney, obtaining a Spanish NIE number, and opening a bank account:

First, you will need to sign a power of attorney over to your lawyer.

The client will need a Spanish NIE number (identification number) from the tax agency to proceed with buying the property. At Marfour, our real estate lawyers will also open a bank account in Spain for you.

2. Due diligences:

It is very important to undertake a legal check of the property situation, especially checking the urban location, the technical inspection of buildings, and assessing the status of any charges.

3. Signature of Land Contract (Contrato de Arras):

This agreement is signed between the buyer and the seller without the need of a notary. At this stage, your real estate lawyer will also make sure that everything is ready for the quick and easy signature of the final purchase deed at the notary.

4. Purchase Deed – Finalization of the process of buying a property in Spain:

The deed is signed in front of a notary, and immediately afterward, your lawyer in Spain will proceed with the registration of the new ownership at the land registry (Registro de la Propiedad).
