Buying a Property in Spain.

Buy a home in Spain

Buying a property in Spain, is the Notary and the Estate agent enough?

At Just Law Solicitors we are the first to tell you that there is no legal requirement to use a lawyer when you buy a property in Spain. That said it is recommended that you use a lawyer to protect your interests. Why is this? Well the first is that reservation contract, arras. You need an independent lawyer acting for you. They will draft or amend the contract, to ensure that your interests are protected. You need to make sure that you have negotiated terms which are favourable to yourself. Further, you need to negotiate as to who holds the deposit. In the unlikely event that the sale does not go ahead, you should not need to have a court case to have your deposit returned.
