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.

Antequera : Correr La Vega : 13/04/17

When : 13/04/17 to 14/04/17

Where : Antequera, Málaga, Spain

What : Correr la Vega

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. Its magnificent monumental complex is the result of its historical past, and is reflected in more than fifty buildings of religious and civil architecture dating from the Bronze Age to the 18th century.

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.
