Are you buying a property?

If you intend to buy a house, a plot of land or commercial premises, you should bear in mind that buying a property in Spain on your own can be a complicated and confusing process specially for those who are not Spanish speaking, involving unfamiliar legal transactions and large sums of money. There is a significant amount of legal work involved to ensure the transaction is made safely and complies with all Spanish legal & tax regulations.
