One question we get asked often is do I have to be in Valencia (Or Spain) to buy a property? Many people, especially investors, want to buy their property now but for various reasons (travel restrictions, Covid, timing, work) they cannot get here right away. This week we even had a client who asked if the owner could wait until September to start the process to purchase a property they wanted to buy because that will likely be the first time they are able to visit. Of course the answer was “No!”
One of the questions we are asked most regularly is,
“How long does it take to buy a property in Spain?
The answer is always,
“Well, it depends!”
If you are ready to purchase then the process can be done in a week or less, at least in the city of Valencia itself where the conveyancing process for the lawyer is quicker. However the answer could even be 3 months or longer depending on the circumstances of the seller and of course your circumstances as a buyer!
