Buying Process

Our team has a large experience in property management in Costa del Sol, and will be at your disposal to advise you in order to meet your expectations. In addition, we will be able to provide legal, banking and administrative advice to expedite the property purchase process. The assistance of a lawyer is recommended as a legal commitment and there are two possibilities, choosing a legal representative personally or advise one of our collaborators.

In the case of being a non-resident foreigner and deciding to make a purchase of a property in Spain, it is necessary an identity document known as NIE (Spanish tax identification number) which is the equivalent of the residence document, necessary for the registration of the property. This document can be obtained with the help of a legal representative or by going to the Spanish Consulate or Embassy in the country of origin.

Once it has been decided to proceed with the purchase of the desired property, Silversea Properties will draw up a “Reservation Contract” as an essential requirement for the reservation of the property during the stipulated period of time, while the legal representative proceeds with the legal proceedings.

The reservation contract includes the terms and conditions of the property purchase and it is accepted and signed by the buyer and the seller on a temporary basis. In general, the document includes details of the buyer, seller, property and deposit. Then, a private sale contract of purchase is prepared by the client’s lawyer to proceed with the purchase of the property legally and officially before Notary, and where buyers and sellers meet to formalize the “Public Deed of Sale”. At the end of the meeting, keys and property documents are delivered to the buyer.

Today we signed our mortgage and got the keys to the house we wanted so badly, and we couldn't be happier to have had Silversea. A professional and attentive team, with honest advice at all times. In our case I can't stop thanking Rafael, the agent who has been with us at all times, with maximum patience, 100% adapted to the requirements we had for the house, close, and very proactive during the final phase prior to the signing. I would always recommend them!
