Process of acquisition/sale of propeties is the process defined as «the legal transfer of a property from the current owner to another, in which one is selling and the other is buying.»
Our team of Spanish lawyers TLA corp represents investors/buyers who are involved in the purchase/construction process of Spanish properties. Also, our legal company assists our clients in legal disputes with the different builders/vendors or agents involved in the construction/purchase of Spanish properties.
Sometimes we find properties affected by legal problems, where the owners are not totally entitled for selling, or where there are charges/debts limiting the use of them and its ownership.
In other cases,we find that the construction of the Spanish property is not properly complete, or it has construction defects, or with lack of legal paperwork (as the proper building license, or certificate of habitation, etc.).
In other cases, we find that buyers are not provided with the proper information of the property, and its surrounding areas, which might condition their decision of purchase.
It is also very common to find contracts not translated into the buyers’ language, or prepared by lawyers of agents/builders, with the aim of overprotecting their position, so, leaving buyers in a very difficult and risky situation.
Our aim is to protect the position of our clients in the purchase process.

This difference is fundamental, because we are ready to discover, not only the registration information from the property, but other essential aspects related with its construction and/or its administrative situation as: Has the property been built ALL permits and licenses?, Does it respect the construction law?, Is it affected for an type of urban development as an expansion like roads, or urbanization works?. These are the points that we, as masters in construction, consider essential, and that, unfortunately, other lawyers without this specialisation, cannot discover.
Our services start making a previous legal checking of the property, the land, and the construction of the property (checking the legal and the administrative situation ). For this, we apply for the information about the property at the Town Hall, and other local institutions where the property is placed, talking to architects and inspectors of the area. The reason of this is to obtain an exact legal situation of the property for construction, licenses, building permits, etc. With this, we will guaranty our clients that there will not be any actions againt the property as constuction fines, demolition orders, etc., in the public institutions regarding any eventual illegal construction, or any work over the building.
