10 Top Tips for Buying Property in Orihuela Costa

There is plenty of advice out there for people buying property in Spain. Not all of this information is up-to-date or equally relevant or precise, so in E-Style Spain we would like to share our expertise in the property market.

Tip 1. Make Your Research

Buying a property is the single most important personal investment you are likely to make. Getting it right is crucial, so make sure you know what type of property you want/need and what location you would like to live in.

Tip 2. Put Your Finances in Order

Work out your budget to include the buying costs, taxes. This way you know exactly what to budget for.

Tip 3. Check Out the Costs of Buying Property in Spain

Also find out in advance what the running costs of the property will be, from bills to mortgage payments to taxes. This way you know exactly what to budget for.

Tip 4. Explore the Areas You Like

Visit different areas, view properties at different times of day and check for elements such as environmental noise, proximity to roads, shopping centres etc. Some areas may be quiet and peaceful at certain times of day while others can be noisy.

Tip 5. Think about the Things You will need in the Future

Think about the future. Will living far from anywhere in your 40s or 50s still suit you in your 60s or 70s? Will that lovely property with acres of land be a blessing or a curse? Think about what you will need in the future and what will be practical for you.

Tip 6. Check Out the Paperwork Needed

A standard procedure in buying property anywhere is to instruct a lawyer to ensure it's documentation is in order and there are no outstanding debts.

Tip 7. Get Everything in Writing

The vendors may have given a verbal agreement to leave all their furniture or pay those outstanding bills, but unless it's in writing it isn't legally binding.

Tip 8. It Is Advisable to Hire a Lawyer

Make sure you choose a lawyer with your interests in mind and make sure they check and double check all fees, taxes, costs and paperwork for you. We can refer you to legal firms we trust and recommend.

Tip 9. Keep Communicating

Choose agents and legal representatives that will keep you in the loop throughout the whole process. This is an important investment and you need to be in the know at all times, so we make sure that you won't have to chase us at any time.

Tip 10. Keep a Contingency Fund

It is always good to keep some funds aside for any practical or decorative requirements that may come up.
