Legal tip 327. Farm houses- a business and a home
03 August 2010 @ 11:39

An old spanish farm to be refurbished.... a dream: a way of living and a business.

It seems that you english, plus french, belgians and northamericans are the main buyers of these type of properties in Spain these days.

We are starting today a number of articles on the necessary legal checks for buying this type of properties.

A quick list:

- Land classification

- Ownership title of seller: charges, encumbrances, possible rights of heirs...

- Refurbishment rights on built elements

- Possibilities for new elements to be built

- Preference rights of Natural Park or adjacent owners

- Access rights

- Irrigation rights

- Well rights

- Dividing walls rights

- Easement rights and obligations

- Telecommunication access rights

- Catastral and IBI verifications


I am sure you are going to enjoy  this serie... and who knows?... maybe any of you finally make the decission on moving to Spain. As always, first thing to find is a good, independent lawyer of your trust different to that of the estate agent of seller.

Best wishes, Maria
