In this section of the course, we consider the financial arrangements you'll need to make ...

What Financial Arrangements Do You Need Make?

The financial arrangements you need make depend on whether you ve reached a private agreement with the owner or claimant, or if you re going to bid at Public Auction.

1. Private Agreement

If you ve reached a private agreement with either the owner or the claimant, the financial arrangements will be relatively straightforward and similar to if you were buying a property in the normal manner.

In other words, it will either be a cash purchase, or you ll need to take out a mortgage to buy the property.

If you re planning on a cash purchase, you may need advice on how to best transfer funds from another country into Spain.

If you need a mortgage, are buying from the claimant, and the claimant is a bank, it s possible they will help arrange a mortgage for you.

Remember that, at the present time, banks are loaning up to 100% mortgages to residents when they - the bank - are the claimant.

You'll find a list of foreclosed properties from the main Spanish banks on this page.

2. Bid At Public Auction

Perhaps you didn t manage to reach a private agreement and plan to bid for the foreclosed property at Public Auction?

If this is the case, you ll first need to ensure you either have enough cash to pay for the property, or that a bank or financial institution will agree to give you a mortgage.

Then, you ll need to organize a special deposit, the payment of which is essential in order for you to actually participate at Public Auction.

This deposit is usually - ‘though not always - 30% of the guide price or tasaci n. It can either be paid into an account prior to Auction (more-often-than-not at the Banesto Bank), the actual account number and details being quoted at the Juzgados (Law Courts). You ll need to take proof of payment along with you to the Auction.

Or, you can take a banker s draft for the deposit along with you to the Public Auction, presenting it prior to bidding.

This deposit will be returned to all unsuccessful bidders.

Remember, you can always ask your lawyer or your local Spanish bank for help and advice with these matters.

3. Spanish Governmental Body

Occasionally, some other Spanish Governmental Body will be handling the auction.

When this is the case, either you or your lawyer should go along to the address given and ask details there of any specific financial arrangements you need to make.
