Carrying out a survey

  • Often overlooked when buying property in Spain, structural surveys are not automatically carried out here as a routine part of the purchase process.
  • While developers of Spanish new-build and off-plan properties are required to have insurance to cover structural problems that may arise, sellers of older or resale properties in Spain are not liable for structural defects.
  • Surveys here are usually conducted by an aparejador (technical architect)or an certified architect, who can also provide advice on the scope and price of work needed and planning issues. We have an architect in our team. Obviously, you can contact with any other professional to do the surveys.
