Some so serious that properties bought with good intentions and all documentation in place have since been demolished, or served with demolition orders. This has occurred time again affecting purchasers dream homes. Futures and health have been ruined and investments lost.

Were these calamities avoidable? Absolutely! All properties sales should have been conducted correctly. Real estates, banks and lawyers should always carry out their part of the negotiations with due diligence. Many had decided to take advantage of the continual surge of purchasers for properties in Spain, often looking for a quick buck and leaving the innocent purchaser to suffer the dire consequences.


In Spain property searches are not obligatory and where notaries can easily sign a purchase or sale, where documentation is often sketchy and misleading, where title deeds do not give a true reflection of the status of a property and where some parties concerned in sales and purchases continue to provide the same unsatisfactory service.
