Top 5 mistakes when buying a house in Spain

Top 5 mistakes when buying a house in Spain

Many buyers of a house in Spain make the mistake of doing the following in the purchasing process.

1. Make the first payment too fast.

Before making a first payment to the seller, you must make sure you have negotiated everything you want. Once you have paid something, it is more difficult to negotiate with the seller. The seller already has a part of the purchase price and, therefore, his commercial position is weak.

2. Do not put everything on paper.

Often, negotiations are carried out when considering buying a house, but are left as a verbal record; for example, an arrangement on painting to be made. This happens under the denominator, “we will do it later”. Or “that will be fine”. It may sound good, but it could be “forgotten”, so put it on a piece of paper. That avoids the later arguments.

3. Enough tracking of the areas.

The areas of the plot and the property are insufficiently registered. These must correspond to the areas that appear in the property registry. Deviations often occur and do not have to be a problem, but must be corrected by the seller at the time of transfer.

4. Not to ask around if you plan a major refurbishment.

This is important when you buy an apartment in a complex. If you are going to do a large-scale job on the roof or on the facades, the owners association will know. It is useful to know before buying. Depending on the amount of maintenance expired, the cost could be considerable.

5. Do not verify if the selling party is the true owner.

Are the sellers the owners or, for example, the heirs of the owner? Or, the property belongs to a company that no longer exists and the records have not yet been updated in the property registry.

Do not verify if the selling party is the true owner.

This christmas,Málaga has welcomed Christmas to the rhythm of Boney M and The Boston Pops Orchestra. On an almost summer afternoon, thousands of people packed the Center yesterday to witness the premiere of a new light and sound show that did not leave anyone indifferent.

So much that half an hour before the start of the show and you could almost walk on the street and the crowd was concentrated until the roundabout of the Marqués de Larios mobile in hand to not miss a detail of the lights. Among them was Laura Mira and her husband Bernardo, who arrived at seven at the Center and already found all the mogollón. “We wanted to go for a snack, but we have stayed to take a place,” they acknowledged.

Before the city was lit up, the balloons became the improvised protagonists of the afternoon, since the usual blues with the slogan Merry Christmas that distributes the town hall were joined by other reds scattered around the Ronald McDonald House and some white from the Lo Güeno restaurant.

The person in charge of lighting Christmas was the mayor of the city, Francisco de la Torre, who together with the mayor responsible for Fiestas, Teresa Porras, and different members of the government and opposition team, pressed the button that started the show of lights. At seven o’clock the large 18-meter-high tree lit up the Plaza de la Constitución and seconds later the music began to play on Calle Larios.

Like last year, the central street will host two shows every day: at 6:30 p.m. and at 9:30 p.m. and it will last about eight minutes, since the three songs will be played in a row. As could be seen in the premiere, for this year more Christmas songs have been chosen and the lights shine at a somewhat slower pace than the previous year.

Until next January 6, when Their Majesties the Magi of the East leave all their bags full of gifts in the houses of the people of Malaga, about two million points of light will illuminate the streets of the capital. All the bulbs are low consumption and have involved an investment of 573,211 euros in the emblematic areas of the city. On this occasion, Calle Larios, has been decorated with a vault with about 2,630 microled cords, two domes and 18 porticos with windows, stained-glass windows and cathedral-style rosettes that have been made looking as close as possible to that of Malaga.

Christmas will light up this year in Malaga for 44 days and to avoid traffic incidents as a result of the high number of people who come to see the lights, the City will restrict the passage of private vehicles through the Alameda Principal during Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays , holidays and vespers between 18 and 22 hours. As it happened yesterday, since the cars were diverted by Córdoba Street and Alameda de Colón.

The Malaga city of Antequera, located at the main crossroads of Andalusia and known as “the heart” of the autonomous community, has been and is a must for travelers and travelers of all time.

One of the elements that identifies its Holy Week is the “Correr la Vega”, a long-awaited tradition both for its inhabitants and for the numerous tourists that are approaching at that time to the town and whose origin, apparently, is due to an ancient Tradition that was to take the images to the highest point of the city to bless the lands of La Vega de Antequera.

On Thursdays and Fridays, at the end of the procession, the “brothers” of the cofradías who process those days, with the exception of La Soledad, take the thrones marching to the beginning of a slope or hill and, with The bell warning, start a very emotional race carrying the thrones to where the fields of la Vega are to be seen, so they can be blessed.
