      Hi I am looking to buy an old property, my solicitor has drawn up the  contrato de compraventa and it states the properties catastral number but says it is not reg on the land register.  Is this ok?

      A lot of Spanish properties have never been inscribed in the Land Registry. It’s not necessarily a problem but does mean you have to take extra care when purchasing one and hope you have a good lawyer who does all the necessary due diligence, because, in theory at least, the land registry filing (nota simple) makes clear ownership and charges associated with a property. And be sure to inscribe your title in the Land Registry after you have purchased.
