ContractLawLawyerpurchases

This is a very common question that is usually asked before the intention to purchase a home or business establishment and can be a great economic saving and avoid future problems. Generally, it is thought that the services of a lawyer are necessary at the time of transfer of the property, but a previous action can be beneficial to know well that it is going to sign and avoid future unforeseen events.

It is important to have good advice from a lawyer before carrying out the formalities of such an important operation as a purchase or sale, whether it is a house, a business establishment, etc. Knowing what the possible costs of the transfer of the property and future expenses will be, and whether it can be carried out correctly without risk, knowing well the current regulations and the tax situation.

The first step in any sale and purchase is the formalisation of the deposit contract, of which we must have full knowledge of the situation related to the property before signing and paying the deposit, in order to avoid future inconveniences; we must know that the person selling is the sole owner of the property, in the case of more than one owner, they will all have to express their willingness to sell, also that there are no associated charges, outstanding debts or that they comply with the town planning regulations.

In the case of making a mortgage contract, before negotiating with the bank, it is very convenient to seek the advice of a lawyer to find the bank that favours it most and that it fulfils its conditions at the time of signing the deeds, also to carry out a previous study of the mortgage contract, in order to avoid the famous abusive clauses and not to be charged with all the associated costs.

It is also important to make a previous study of the contract to sign, to know and understand that all its clauses are within what the regulation demands, to know which expenses will be the ones that we must fulfill at the time of making the signature, of which it does not have present or future accumulated debts and like being able to act if we find some abusive clause.

To have the services of a lawyer before facing all this procedure, generates the tranquility of knowing that you have full knowledge of everything that is going to be signed, that you will not find unpleasant surprises in the future and that you will have the property in full conditions.
