7 steps to the Conveyancing process in Spain

  1. Our team will prepare all the documentation for the sale of your property.
  2. We carry out all routine background checks for the property, including a land registry check. We will inform you of any outstanding charges such as property utilities, council taxes, community fees or mortgages. You can have peace of mind that all outstanding debts have been cleared prior to completion.
  3. Before the notary visit, our team will send a detailed completion statement with all of the costs incurred for the sale of the property. 
  4. Before selling your Spanish property, you must have a Habitation Certificate and Energy Certificate. Our team can help you have both in place before selling.
  5. If you cannot be in Spain on the day of the completion of the sale of your property, we also provide Power of Attorney. This service allows us to sign for you on the day of completion at the notary.
  6. We provide a full day of support on the day of the sale of your property in the notary. This includes translating and explaining the process for you.
  7. Currency Exchange – HomeFinance Spain can also arrange for your completion cheque to be exchanged in the currency of your choice.
