What searches does a lawyer do apart from getting the nota simple from the council and phoning the administradora? Anybody can do that. (Which explains why just about anybody can call themselves a lawyer in Spain)
If you have got the finance in place then there should be very little delay in getting that contract signed. If you are buying a standard flat and somebody asks for a holding deposit then you might as well move onto the next standard flat and place an offer on that one instead. Try to get the vendors competing against each other!
The risk is with the vendor that they might lose the buyer, not the other way around. If anything the vendor should be paying the buyer a deposit to keep hold of them!
