Our inspection trip / flight package is based on the individual. Every individual has his or her own criteria to fulfill when buying a new property. Whether this is the best location for a property in terms of rental/investment potential, relocation to Spain long-term, or simply a holiday home for friends and family.
To ensure that each individual’s criteria are taken into account, each inspection trip is tailor made. Information is gathered prior to travel both with our property experts in the UK and with our questionnaire. The idea being that by the time you land in Spain your designated consultant will have a plan as to which properties and locations to cover during your stay. All clients will be provided with a consultant on a one to one basis for the duration of your stay, to ensure that every property you are taken to see suits the criteria requested.
Although the main emphasis of the Inspection trip will be to show you as many relevant properties as possible, we will also endeavor to show you as much about the general area and amenities as we can. It is very important when purchasing a new home to be made aware of what is immediately around it, whether this is just in terms of local amenities, points of interest, or simply what the atmosphere is like at different times of the day.
Conditions for travel
Although there is no pressure to purchase any property while on an inspection trip, we do ask that all applicants are at least very interested in buying one and take some form of deposit necessary to secure a property should you see one that you like. The advised form of deposit in this situation is a banker’s draught to the value of £2000, made payable to you. This way if you wish to put a deposit down on a property the bankers draught can be cashed in Spain, and if you do not, for any reason, you can put it straight back into your bank account in the UK upon your return.
Inspection trips run either from a Saturday – Tuesday, or from a Tuesday – Saturday. This format cannot be changed due to hotel booking schedule restrictions.
We reserve the right to refuse an inspection trip at our discretion.
Spanish Mortgages are available to all clients while on an inspection trip. All paperwork/applications can be actioned while on your trip. Please note most Spanish mortgage lenders limit borrowing to 50% of the total value of new property, meaning that to qualify for one you will in most cases have to have 50% cash to put down.
If you need to borrow in excess of 50% then most UK mortgage lenders will offer some sort of package for purchasing foreign property. The same restrictions are not usually imposed in the UK.
All legal issues involved in buying a property in Spain can be actioned while on your inspection trip. Costs in total are normally in the region of 3.5%.
