What is important to know when buying property in Mallorca

  1. Buying real estate in the Balearic Islands, and in Mallorca in particular, is an excellent private investment and, in the case of buying a business property, a profitable and promising investment of capital.
  2. When buying real estate in another country, a buyer or investor needs to know and be prepared for the fact that the legislation on real estate will be completely different, with its own nuances that are different from the rules of his country. To understand this, it would be wise to contact a competent lawyer who will clarify all the details.
  3. The buyer should keep in mind that real estate agencies are always trying to show the best and “brilliant” part of the property in Mallorca. While after the purchase, unpleasant circumstances, legal shortcomings, utility bills, the lack of the necessary legal documents may become clear. Thus, it is vitally important to do a thorough check of the seller’s reputation and the legality of the property.
  4. It should be understood that the real estate market in Mallorca is quite aggressive. And the buyer will have to face a multitude of sellers driven only by their own interest in enrichment. That is why you need to have a trusted person nearby, a lawyer, whose fee does not consist of a percentage of the value of the property. Only in this case is it possible to guarantee that the interests of the buyer are exclusively observed.

Why you can trust us

Before buying

We pay great attention to advice before purchase. Our customers should be well-informed and clearly understand all the nuances of the purchase procedure. We carry out all the necessary checks related to the legal registration of property and land, obtaining a building consent, building licenses and certificates. In the event that the property is a community property, we give advice on the relevant issues and, if necessary, provide assistance in the ongoing management of this type of property.

Financial consulting and mortgages

Our law firm has strong ties to the banking system and mortgage providers in Mallorca. We will provide you with first-hand information on obtaining a mortgage, thanks to which you can choose the most advantageous mortgage and banking account opening offers.

Construction planning rules

It is imperative that you familiarize yourself with the local building planning regulations, which are becoming more and more stringent in Mallorca every year. Our experts advise on the compliance of the existing property with the requirements for future building. Some of the most respected architects and surveyors in Mallorca are our consultants. We will refer you to the right construction specialist to help to resolve all problems appeared during the planning process.

Support after purchase

After purchasing a property in Mallorca, we will take care of the buyer’s residence permit, if necessary. We also help in all aspects of owning real estate here, both foreign citizens and residents of Mallorca.

Property management

If, after purchasing a property, you plan to rent it out for a long-term or tourist lease, we will advise you on the current legislation and regulations for renting private real estate. You can also count on us if you need to develop an individual lease agreement.
