Buying Advice: Always Protect Your Deposit

We at Hondon Villas always use a Lawyer (abogado) to collect and receipt deposits on house purchases. We DO NOT HOLD your money in a special account or keep it if the sale goes cold.

We highly recommend to NEVER PAY AN AGENT or BUILDER an advanced DEPOSIT. Always ask for a qualified lawyer or appoint one in advance to take care of your finances.

Unfortunately, some agents in the area who insist on taking a deposit as their commission, whether the sale goes through or not. This is RISKY for the buyer and seller and in our opinion WRONG! The chances are you will never see that money again. We are AIPP registered and adhere to good practice for both buyer and seller.

It is common practice when buying a property in Spain to ask the buyer to pay a % deposit on the home they wish to buy in advance of the completion. The main reason is to show good will and for the agent to remove the property from sale whilst the paperwork is checked. So you are making a reservation on the property by signing an “arras agreement“.

This actually helps both sides of the deal. The buyer is assured their offer has been accepted and there will be no further viewings or offers on the property and the seller has some peace of mind that the buyer has the good intention to purchase.

Bare in mind  that you may lose this deposit if you don’t complete the sale on the date stated, or that the vendor shall return double the amount deposited, was he finally not to honour the contract in the stated date. But your contract should be clear on that.

A deposit can be any amount depending on the sale price and circumstances. In the Hondon Valley and surrounding areas a €3000 deposit is common but can be more if the property is of a high price, a special deal or maybe an off-plan new build. The latter can be 10% of the purchase price so a a builder can commence with the work.

Of course integral to this should is trust and a signed contract spelling out the terms of the deposit, what it is for, costings and any other due fees or staged payments until completion. Make sure you understand the terms and if a deposit is refundable or not.

The lawyer will have a special holding account for these deposits and importantly is the legal guardian whilst the house sale goes through.

There are many good estate agents in Spain but the industry is more loosely regulated than in the UK and unscrupulous estate agents sometimes target overseas investors. So be careful!

Sean Adams, international director of mortgage broker SPF Private Clients, says:  “Do not hand over any money to an estate agent until you have taken formal legal advice. You should always choose a lawyer who specialises in Spanish land,” he said. “Ask for their registration number and check that they are registered and practicing with the local bar association (Colegio de Abogados). It would be wise to also check that your lawyer has professional indemnity insurance.”

At the time of writing, Hondon Villas are the only Hondon Valley based AIPP agent with this prestigious membership and we now have the right to show the AIPP badge. Which of course we do with pride.

Who needs Agents? Find an Expat instead!

LOL! A recent story (abridged) …
Buyer: “Oh no I’d never buy a DVD player from a random bloke in the pub. Too rissssssky.”

Agent:Very wise! Oh so how did you hear about the house you want to buy here?

Buyer: “Oh the barmaid in that bar showed me it, she was very nice! She says I don’t need a to worry about black money or the paperwork.  And I don’t need an estate agent!”

Thought bubble!  So the biggest purchase of your life, 1/4 of million+ €€€ and you think the … well phhfff… we wish you luck with that one!

We know that a mechanic can fix a car. We  know the electrician will fit new lights. We know a butcher will cut a nice fillet of beef. We know the barmaid will serve ice cold drinks on hot days and the chef will cook that beef…

But a good real estate agent will sit next to you and hold your hand through the long property purchase maze, they will value, photo and video your property, negotiate the deal, sort the deposits and contracts, take you to get the right paperwork like NIEs, find me a good lawyer, open a bank account with you, know the area, the trade people,  help you with transport and the legal notary and always help you after the sale.

Do we also know the estate agent has lots of costs in running an office, employing staff, equipment, computers, websites, tax, insurance, advertising, networking, car / petrol, telephone bills, electric, water, heating, fixtures, fittings and so on… ?

We know the local agent will be part of the community, give to local charities, pay the rates, keep abreast of local planning and events, help the other businesses, create and distribute wealth, introduce people as friends, eat & drink in the local catering establishments and so on.

So a good estate agent is more than just sales person in our opinion. What do you think?

Get expert Legal Advice when buying or selling your property

Real Estate Code of ConductAs an AIPP registered agent, Hondon Villas would not be doing our job correctly if we didn’t advise our clients to seek proper legal advice when buying or selling a property in the Hondon Valley areas.

We have experienced many people “going it alone”,  doing a “black money” deal or bypassing some of the legal paths to save money but WITH DRASTIC and COSTLY RESULTS, including one deal with counterfeit cash (person got caught when trying to put a large sum into a Spanish bank !!)… another where a house purchased verbally as “fully furnished” found there was no furniture at all when they got the keys to open their new home!

These and many other problems of variable severity can be avoided with proper checks and contracts. So we think it is vital to seek independent professional legal advice for a property sale/purchase in Spain to avoid making costly mistakes. Your lawyer should undertake all the necessary due diligence / paper work on the purchase and, if granted power of attorney, will be able to act on your behalf and save you having to make numerous trips to Spain to open a bank account, obtain an NIE number and other necessary procedures.

If you don’t already have a Lawyer, ask others for recommendations as not all offer the same service or fees. At Hondon Villas we do use several Lawyers in the general area, preferring not to have all our eggs in one basket and to reduce dependency or allegiance to just one company.

If we feel a Lawyer (or collaborating agent for that matter) is not acting in the interests of the clients, simply we ditch them! (and we have).

Spanish Property Prices Index

+++ PROPERTY MARKET DATA ALICANTE REGION +++

AUGUST 2016: We use various property market indicators as a guide to the current status of Spanish Real Estate. Here are some interesting stat’s based on real Notary data since 2007.

The property price index for the Alicante region is up by 5.1 over last year with a 25% increase in sales. [ Hondón Villas have many reduced priced properties here » ]

You can see that houses prices in 2016 are about 69% average of what they were in 2007.
CLICK TO ENLARGE: You can see that houses prices in 2016 are about 69% average of what they were in 2007.

The average price of a 3 bed property in this wider Alicante region is €136K with Murcia being cheaper at €109K.

Foreign buyers of Spanish property are still on the increase (albeit a lot slower than the boom years).

Mortgage lending on house sales is up by 19% in the area but rentals are down by nearly 7%. The population is roughly the same so no mass migration from Spain as yet.

And sadly unemployment is still a problem for Spain and the Alicante region but down by nearly 3% (although we are in the main tourist season).
Overall Spain has seen prices increases across all its regions from just 1.6% up to about 9% in the Madrid area. Overall Valencia has seen a 5.1% increase in house prices, where as Murcia 2.9%.

You can see that houses prices in 2016 are about 69% average of what they were in 2007.  [Source: Kyero Data, Notaries]
