After reservation of accommodation

We arrange everything on your behalf in Spain by proxy. We solve all signatures from you by e-mail and regular mail.

  • Power of attorney between buyers and our lawyers. This allows us to carry out the entire purchase process on behalf of the buyer. Can be performed in both Norway and Spain.

  • The lawyer collects all documents and has any encumbrances deleted.
  • We create a bank account for you in Spain.
  • Formal takeover by Notary. It takes about 2 months before we receive the original deed.

Total takeover time varies, but if you do not have an NIE number, you must expect 2-3 months if the home is ready for occupancy.

After takeover

After taking over from a notary, we need around 2 weeks to get everything in place so the home can be used. For example electricity and water.

  • We create automatic deductions for water, electricity, common expenses, property taxes, renovation and insurance from your Spanish bank account.
  • Inheritance planning, writing a will with our lawyer.
