Due Diligence – A MUST in Barcelona Real Estate

We investigate the property thoroughly to collect information that will help us bring down the price.

This includes:

  • Analyzing documents to confirm the property’s correct dimensions, the current owner(s), unpaid mortgages and, tax liens. Buyers assume overdue liens.
  • Investigating the building’s physical condition and repair history. Owners must pay for repairs, which can be expensive. 
  • Researching zoning laws and use restrictions that affect the property.

*We work with a local architect qualified to inspect property for structural defects and renovation possibilities.

With this information, you decide if the price is fair.
