Why You Need an Inspection Before Buying Your New Home in the Sun

MiMove on 2021-04-09

Have you found the perfect property in Spain and are ready to buy it? Before going any further, do yourself a favour and schedule an inspection. The right inspector can save you plenty of money and time, and make sure that your Spanish home in the sun is actually a dream home and not a nightmare in disguise.

An Inspection is a Must

There’s always a lot to think about when you’re buying a new home. If you are an investor from overseas and not a Spanish resident, there are some additional factors you need to consider before opening up your wallet. Building regulations differ from country to country – what is standard in your home country might not be the same in Spain. Therefore, it’s highly recommended that you survey any potential home. 

When you hire Enspecta to do an inspection, we make sure that you have the right information about the property that you are interested in buying. We look at everything you need to know about your property – like the electrical installation, the water system, and air conditioning – to mention a few aspects.

We even give you an action proposal so that you can plan for any possible renovations in the future. We also dig into legal matters and make sure that the property has the proper required permissions.

Common Construction Negligence

Unfortunately, it’s quite common for properties in Spain to not have the proper building permits, which can cause buyers a lot of trouble. If a property doesn’t have the right use class, it can affect the possibility to rent it out or renovate. When you hire Enspecta to do a survey, we make sure that you have the right information before purchasing the property.

Getting a home survey can give you more control over the purchase and ensure that you’re buying a property in good conditions. Our employees are from Spain and have a full understanding of how the Spanish market works, along with property regulations that need to be followed.

How Does a Home Survey Work?

When you have made the wise decision to get a survey, we suggest that you book an appointment as soon as possible. The faster you can get the right information about the property, the sooner you can decide if you want to proceed with the purchase or not. When you contact Enspecta, we make sure to do the survey within a week.

If you are in Spain at the time of the survey, you are welcome to join us. If not, we just collect the keys from the estate agent’s office. Within four days after the survey, you’ll have a report in hand that gives you all the information that you need to know your property thoroughly. If you have any questions, you are always welcome to contact us
