     Contrato de arras

    The presale agreement aka contrato de arras is the agreement by which a down payment on account of the final price is given to the seller. It is essential that an independent experienced solicitor drafts this document following the information shed by the due diligence.

    Whatever is agreed in the contrato de arras will govern the relationship between the parties until the conclusion of the transaction.

    The contrato de arras should be in all cases drafted by the purchaser’s solicitor to guarantee the fairness of the deal.

    Due diligence

    The due diligence is the process where the solicitors audit the property to disclose any potential pitfalls to the purchaser’s interests.

    Any proper due diligence in Spain must carefully study:

    • Who the owners are and their faculties to transfer the property;
    • The information contained in the land registry and whether it coincides with physical conditions of the property;
    • The physical condition of the property;
    • The existance of encumbrances (mortgages, easements, reservations, seizures…);
    • Existence of leases and third parties pre-emption rights;
    • Good standing certificates of real estate taxes and contributions due by the previous owner;
    • Water, electricity and other utility contracts.


    The closing is the final stage of the transaction where the parties sit down before the notary to sign the deed of transfer.

    At Legaliaspain we can represent you in this final stage via a power of attorney and avoid you the trip so by the time you come to pick up the keys to your property all the work is been completed.


    One key element of conveyancing is knowing how much you will spend in taxes and if you could benefit from a tax scheme to lower the taxation in the transaction.

    The tax advisors at Legaliaspain will be able to guide you through this process so you can maximize your investment.
