Documents to be requested by the buyer
This is a document that you can request at the Land Registry, with which you will know if the seller is really the owner of the property and if the property is free of encumbrances, for example if there is a mortgage on it.
It is a document that certifies that no urban infraction has been committed on the property and that you do not have any file in your charge at the city hall. It will be important to request this document from the seller, because if, for example, the owner has extended the house and this extension has not had the appropriate licenses and has been fraudulent, the buyer, as the new owner, could be sanctioned and in the case of being ordered the demolition will be at his expense.
It is important to ask the seller for the last receipt of the Real Estate Tax (IBI), as well as the last utility bills of the property, in order to know if the owner is up to date with the payment, since, if not, when acquiring the property, the new owner becomes responsible for the possible debts.
Request the statutes of the community of owners, especially in the event that the property acquired is not intended to be the habitual residence, for example, if it is intended to develop a professional activity there, these practices could be prohibited in these statutes.
