Why do you need technical due diligence on your Spanish property?
A lawyer will ensure that all paperwork is correct; however, this may not be complete if the property is not described accurately or has major defects. Extra rooms may have been built that do not show on the paperwork and perhaps do not have the required licenses.
Equally, there may be structural or other building problems, that would not become apparent until after the property is purchased. Issues like these can be avoided when the property is professionally surveyed, inspected and measured before a purchase is completed.
Additionally, it’s important to be aware of changes to legislation. For example, now it’s crucial to confirm if there is a tenant in the buildings – it doesn’t matter if it’s an informal agreement – if there is a tenant, they may have the right to remain for five years.
When carrying out RICS Building Surveys and Property Valuations, the surveyor checks on all of these matters, as appropriate to the locality in which the property is located.
A building survey prevents buyers from being burdened with the troubles of the seller.
