Buying a property in Spain is actually much simpler than you might expect!

  • The sale and purchase of property in Catalonia as indeed everywhere else in Spain must be registered at the Registro de la Propiedad the Land Registry, which records all details of the sale, along with any charges or encumbrances.
  • The sale-purchase itself is carried out before a state approved “Notario” a Notary Public, who prepares the “Escritura Pública de Compraventa” the Deed of Transfer in accordance with Spanish Law.
  • Compared to the UK for example, the Spanish system is quite simple, and has the advantage of being considerably quicker.
