You may have not come across the term conveyancing until you have decided to buy or sell a property. It is a very important service which we offer clients to save them time and stress. Here we explain some of the reasons why using a professional conveyancer is the right choice! Let’s go!
First of all, what is Conveyancing?
Conveyancing is the legal work involved in buying or selling a property or land. It includes the preparing of the sales contracts and other related documents. Most importantly, it includes the transferring of the title deeds of the property.
There are many steps to the conveyancing process, see Conveyancing in Spain.
Much of the conveyancing process occurs when the contract for the sale of the property has been signed. However, a lot of important steps take place before anything is signed. This includes ensuring the property matches the address on the land registry, that the seller is the legitimate owner of the property and that the building conforms with all building requirements.
What is a Conveyancer?
A conveyancer is a professional specializing in property transactions. A conveyancer’s role is to help the client with the settlement of the property and with the transferring of the title deeds. A conveyancer ensures that their client confirms with all of the legal obligations of buying or selling a property, and protects their rights during the transaction.
Can I not do the Conveyancing Process myself?
Yes you can, and it may appear as if you can save money doing it yourself. However, in the long run it can prove more costly. Buying and selling property is often the largest transaction an individual will make in their lifetime. A professional conveyancer ensures that all the legal requirements are met during the process, which can save you incurring high penalties for breaching a contract.
They also complete all the documentation preparation, do the background property checks, advise on any certifications you may require, book the notary appointment, attend the notary with you or for you with Power of Attorney, do all the translations and much more.
When selling or buying property, you do not want to encounter delays or unnecessary costs. Using a professional conveyancer will ensure you don’t.
Why should I use a Professional Conveyancer?
The most important benefit of hiring a conveyancer is their professional property experience. If a problem arises during the transaction, a conveyancer will be able to streamline the process for their client. This allows you to feel safe in the knowledge that you are receiving the best advice on legal matters, especially if you are unfamiliar with Spanish laws and procedures.
Having professional advice on hand can allow you to make decisions faster, resulting in the transaction going through smoothly lessening the risk of you losing out on the sale of a property.
A conveyancer will see problems and issues before they even occur and fix them straight away. This saves you time as you do not need to translate documents or feel alone in making important decisions.
If you are worried about being taken advantage of as an expatriate in a country where you are unfamiliar with the laws in Spain – you do not need to worry. A conveyancer only has your interests in mind and will never go ahead with anything without discussing and explaining everything to you in great detail.
If a situation arises where you have to back out of a transaction, a conveyancer will advise you on how to do it properly. They will communicate with the other party and explain everything calmly. A conveyancer is also in the best position to ensure you do not lose any more money than necessary if you have to back out of the sale.
