THE PURCHASE PROCESS
RESERVATION CONTRACT / PRIVATE PURCHASE CONTRACT:
If everything is in order, we will ask you to authorize the signing of the reservation contract or the private purchase contract (in some cases, it will be necessary to sign a reservation contract first; sometimes you will simply sign the private purchase contract).
When the reservation contract is signed, a partial payment of approximately 3,000-10,000 Euros of the price will be required.
When the private purchase contract is signed, a partial payment of approximately 10-30% of the price (minus the reservation deposit, plus VAT in off-plan properties) will be required.
The next step will be the signing of the title deeds on completion before a public notary. At that stage, the balance of the purchase price (and the VAT, in off-plan properties) is paid, and possession of the house is received. From that moment, you will be the lawful owner of the house.
By completion, in off-plan properties, MT LEGAL LAWYERS will check that the developer has obtained the appropriate licences (habitation licence) so that everything is in order and you can receive possession of the house legally; in second-hand property transfers, we will ensure there are neither debts nor charges affecting the property. We will assist you with the signing of your title deeds in due course.
After completion, you will be required to pay stamp duty (in off-plan properties, 1.5% of the purchase price) or transfer tax (between 8 and 10%, only in second-hand properties).
It will also be necessary to register your title deeds at the land registry, complete the registration with the community of owners, register the new owners for the payment of the local taxes (council tax and rubbish tax), and arrange for the connection of your utilities. Also, in off-plan transactions, if you are not planning to come during the days before completion or a few days after, it is advisable to appoint somebody to prepare the snagging list of the house, so that we can ask the developer to solve any physical damage at the property. MT LEGAL LAWYERS will assist you with all these matters in due course.
