My Father in Law and his late Wife purchased a 2 Bed Terraced House close to the Beach in Orihuela on the South Costa Blanca back in 2005. They had a couple of holidays out there and then due to ill health and the subsequent death of his late wife the property has been left and not visited for around 7 years, allthough I understand a neighbour to the property has a key and keeps and eye on things.
My Father in Law is now in poor health himself and has decided to sell the property and asked me to sort this out for him.
I have no idea where to start and don’t want to fall foul of any rookie mistakes due to my ignorance of the whole system.
Can anyone help point me in the right direction as to what my first steps should be?

Have the property title deeds and land registry audited to check present legal position and proceed to register the inheritance; contacting Town Hall and Community of Owners to asses debts for rates and community charges; taking possession of the property and assess conditions of habitability, home insurance and start looking around to assess the price.

My best advice would be to do a bit research on the agent your selling with, also to ask them what commissions they charge upfront.
I know HomeEspaña are very good and tell you all charges when they first go out to evaluate your property. Good luck! 🙂

If you are not a property professional it is better to find a competent real estate company at place and to discuss what you have to do to sell your house. They will help you to find the best way and guide you. I think it can help you to organise the sale without problem and no time lost.
