When an offer is accepted

When an offer is accepted - The solicitor takes the legal responsibility for checking the land registry and if all is well will then prepare a private contract which will bind both parties to the deal (you will be asked to lodge a deposit on the property, to take the property off the market). The solicitor will next prepare the public deeds (Escritura de Compraventa) for signature in front of a Spanish Notary.

After completion

Immediately after completion - The notary will fax details of the title deed to the local land register to inform them of the identity of the new owner. This will prevent the property from being sold twice. The notary and the land register act together to protect and guarantee your interests. Your solicitor can also arrange for the transfer to your name of utilities and services such as water and electricity and organise their payment through a local bank.
