We are thinking about buying a perfectly reformed old house in a Spanish village. Our issue is that, because the owner has had the house passed down from his family, there are no deeds (it isn’t on the land registry). Question: how long would it take to get the house registered and get the deeds?
Bo Jangle’s advice is probably as good as any, but you might want to consider the following:
The only person that needs to provide an answer to your question is the seller.
However, if your question is how long would it take you, as the buyer, to get the place properly registered, I would guess that most people on here would give you the same advice; i.e. tell the seller to get the place registered and then you will consider buying the house.
Would you purchase a property in your home country, if you knew that the property was not registered ? If your answer is no, then why would you consider buying an unregistered property in a foreign country ?
