Home - News - What to look out for when buying a property?


If it is a newly built home, we must take into account every detail. For example, the builder, that the amounts to be delivered are guaranteed with a bank guarantee, that the promised deadlines are met and that the materials used are the same as those listed in the specifications. Once the property has been completed, it must be ensured that all the installations, finishes and other promises have been fulfilled and the property is ready to be used.


If it is a resale property (second hand), it is important to pay attention to the location of the property as well as its general condition. From the first contact, the state and quality of the walls, the dampness, cracks and breakages of the whole property in general should be taken into account. Before making the escritura, another “examination” of the property must be made to check that all the installations are correct and in the case that the furniture is removed, check that when it is removed, no part of the property has been damaged.
