BUY A PROPERTY REMOTELYIf you want to buy a property in Spain but wish to avoid having to come here to sign completion, this is the most suitable option. This way you will save time and money. Through a POA, you will empower us to represent you at the Notary’s office and sign the Title Deed.
SEARCH THE LAND REGISTRYWe will help you find out the charges (i.e. mortgages), encumbrances or debts against a Spanish property. With a Simple Note, you will obtain information on the identity of the owner(s), location of the property, classification of the property, possible charges, and more...
INVEST IN REAL ESTATEWe make sure that all of the appropriate checks are carried out and that the property is safe to buy - to save you both lots of money and sleepless nights. To buy a Spanish property safely you need specialist advice from someone thoroughly familiar with the legal system. That's where we come in: safely invest in Spanish real estate with Lexidy.
LEASE AGREEMENTA well-crafted lease agreement specifies the terms of your rental arrangement, reduces your liability risk, and helps protect your investment. As a landlord, you need a high-quality lease agreement both you and your tenant can trust. We have three types of contracts depending on the type of property: residential, commercial, and short-term.
ARRAS AGREEMENTAn arras document is used for the purchase of a property, where the party interested in purchasing a property deposits 10% of the price – and the terms of the sale are agreed. A well-crafted one specifies the terms of your private agreement, reduces your liability risk, and protects your investment against the successful completion of the purchase.
POWER OF ATTORNEYIf you need to have a legal representative in Spain that manages your dealings on your behalf, while you are not present, a POA is the perfect option. A Power of Attorney is a legal document that grants an individual (or group of individuals) the right to act on behalf of a person for the stipulated tasks.
BUROFAX NOTICEThe Burofax is a legal notice which has capability of being produced in court – including certification of reception to the addressee. Our service includes the drafting and preparation of the letter according to your requests. We will check everything is to your approval and then send via certified post.
