The conveyancing process
We pride ourselves in provinding the best service.
After appointing Roper Lawyers to assist you with the purchase process, we will request the seller or estate agency to provide all documents necessary to make the appropriate legal searches and check that everything is in order.
Once we have the information available to us and carried out the appropriate legal searches, we will prepare a legal report informing you on the legal situation of the property, and the terms and conditions of your purchase transaction.
If everything is in order, we draft the reservation contract and ask you to authorize the signing. The amount for the reservation is usually agreed between buyers and sellers and the purpose of it is to take the property off market.
PRIVATE PURCHASE CONTRACT
Once the private purchase contract is signed, a further partial payment is required (usually 10%, having deducted the reservation amount). This contract will state as many clauses as necessary for the purchase depending on the negotiations.
You will be accompanied to the Public Notary by us for the signing of the title deeds making sure everything is completely in order. Once signed, you receive the possession of the house being from that moment, the lawful owner of the property.
We will be notified by the Public Notary to collect the new title deed. Once collected we proceed to register it at the Land Registry with all the corresponding documents. We will be notified by the Land Registry once the deeds are fully registered.
Once registered, we proceed with all changeovers such as with the community of owners, register the new owners for the payment of the local municipality taxes (property rates and rubbish tax), and arrange for the changovers of all utilities from previous owners on to your name.
