Stage 1. A House Buyer's Survey to ensure the client understands the condition of a property - A full report will uncover any major or minor faults with subsequent implications. Walls are inspected for damp and timbers and other materials present are inspected for any deterioration. The roof and foundations are assessed and all services are commented upon. In addition, the report will provide a summary of the current legal status of the property taking into account access and boundary issues, disputes, taxes and title matters.

Stage 2. Legal advice through the negotiations to purchase with local searches and checks carried out on a property prior to the private contract - Checks carried out at the relevant local authorities to ensure the specific use of a property is registered and that there are no local schemes, or debts that might affect a property investment.

Stage 3. Independent legal advice from an english speaking abogado (lawyer) on the private contract which upon signing, secures a property and is the point when a deposit is paid - The terms of the private contract are negotiated and agreed with the seller to ensure that you are buying what you think you are buying.

Stage 4. Dedicated property consultancy advice up to and including the signing of the escritura - There are many issues to consider in the buying process from obtaining the national identity numbers to making sure that the funds are properly transferred at the signing of the escritura.
