PHASE 1

Are you interested in a property in Spain and do you want more information before you make a decision?

Then you can provide us with information that you have, such as an advertising link, a telephone number, an address, GPS coordinates or other data.

Ruralpropertyspain.com can provide you with the following information:

  1. Print out of the first conversation with the selling party, either a private person or a broker.

    This first contact is very important because it provides us with very relevant information about the general situation. € 30 + VAT
  2. Apply for the Nota Simple provided by the property register.

    This document informs us, among other things, who the owner is or who the owners are, whether there are debts on the property, what the possible associated costs are and whether there are restrictions on use. € 20 + VAT (plus the costs of the Nota Simple.)
  3. Sending the cadastral maps that make up the property.

    This serves to view data such as the area, the boundaries and for what the property can be used. It will also help us to compare the surface area with the register and see if they match. € 30 + VAT

    It gives us a more global impression of the characteristics and location of the property in relation to the landscape. € 25 + VAT

    We communicate the annual costs of taxes such as IBI, water consumption, electricity, gas, taxes on pollution, sewage, waste, road improvement, etc. € 60 + VAT
  6. Verification that the property is up-to-date in the payment of taxes, community fees and invoices from companies that provide services.

    We provide the latest proof of payment of all payments related to the annual cost of the property and check if all payments are paid until the day of sale. € 80 + VAT

  9. Check whether a building permit and project by a competent engineer for the renovation of the building has been granted by the city council.

    We request a document from the relevant city council that confirms that the structure has been restored with the corresponding permission (permit) and/or project and that this permission has not been withdrawn. And if it is a new work, that the structure is built according to the general urban plan of the corresponding location. € 50 + VAT
  10. Check whether there is any open sanction procedure in progress at the urban development department of the municipality where the property is located.

    This procedure shows us whether or not there is a current fine on the property for an urban violation that could have been committed. € 40 + VAT
  11. Requesting a technical report from an architect to rule out that the property has problems or hidden defects that may arise in the future.

    Sellers are responsible for hidden defects that are not visible or visible. In case that such a problem arises, it is necessary to claim it through the court, which entails delays and costs. That is why an earlier report will save you surprises.  € 60 + VAT

We also find on this certificate details of registration, who are the managers and / or authorized representatives, the registered office, the NIF, as well as that there is no report of bankruptcy proceedings and a statement about the absence of claims, disputes or any unforeseen cases. € 80 + VAT
  15. Audit of the Owners Community Accounts ¨La comunidad de Propietarios¨.

    Each property has a value that the state believes the real estate costs. The annual tax is determined based on that value.
