1. Buying a well prepared second home in Spain
Looking for a second home in Spain? Know that the Spanish real estate market plays by different rules than the Flemish one. Therefore it is best to let a local expert such as INVESTINSPAIN assist you. We are familiar with the local customs and possible pitfalls. We help you to avoid buying something that is not legally correct. We do this both from our experience, our network of partners and our cooperation with a team of lawyers and tax experts.
Count on the guidance of an accreditedBIV broker and enjoy extra protection as a result. Every Belgian who is self-employed in real estate activities must compulsorily have an BIV accreditation. And whoever has this recognition is under the supervision of the Professional Institute. This means that he or she must strictly observe the deontological code and the Doctrine of Obligations of the Real Estate Agent. In addition, he must have a professional indemnity insurance, so you are much safer with your purchase in Spain.
In addition, the guidance of an estate agent also saves you a lot of time. We make sure that only high quality new build projects are offered to you, so that you don’t lose unnecessary time searching between the very large number of properties on offer. Drop by our office in Mechelen for an introduction. Based on this conversation, we can present a portfolio of projects that fully meet your expectations.
2. Inspection trip on the Costa del Sol
After we have sat down with you during an introductory meeting and have made a good selection based on your wishes, it is time to go and have a look on site. That’s why we organize guided inspection tours for your search for a second home in Spain, during which we will visit the newly built apartments / villas of your preference. We will go through the administration with you, discuss your questions and possibly plan a second visit to your dream home. You will also have the opportunity to discover the surrounding area: the accessibility and quality of the local stores, medical facilities and sports facilities of your choice. The best restaurants in the area, the nearby golf courses and much more.
The Costa de Sol is made up of very many different villages and towns, each of which has its own qualities and characteristics.

3. Administrative support for purchase of second residence in Spain
Professional advice is central to our services in general, and especially when it comes to legal advice and/or tax advice. Your interests in buying a second home in Spain are not represented by a notary, but by a lawyer. INVESTINSPAIN relies on a team of lawyers and tax advisers who speak Dutch, English, French and Spanish. They (www.welex.es) work with permanently assigned lawyers and tax consultants for our clients, which allows for a customized service. In addition to performing the usual legal checks of the property, they are also ready to answer all your tax questions. Are you buying with a partnership? New Spanish, or your own partnership? Are you buying privately? Right of usufruct? Inheritance law? Our lawyers and tax experts will be happy to answer all your questions.
We also take care of administrative elements with our Belgian office on site. For example, you can count on translations of all documentation. Be sure to let us know during our meetings what function the property has for you. Would you like to experience the Spanish life at first hand through a second stay in Spain, or is it more of an investment? Would you like to rent out your apartment, townhouse or villa as a vacation home? Then our rental service could be very interesting. In any case, our comprehensive service package is interesting for everyone. This way you are not alone when it comes to furnishing, maintenance, security and other practical matters.
