What is the scope of our guidance when purchasing in Tenerife, before you become an owner? What solutions and methods do we use? It is very simple: you are going to buy through a construction promoter, broker or private individual. Everything looks good, but you would like (and this is a very good idea) to have a specialist lawyer or consultant check everything and be at your side to look after your interests, so that you do not have to face unpleasant surprises afterwards!
We will guide you step by step through your purchase process, regardless of what you buy, from whom you buy and how much you pay for it. Contact us before you sign anything! Our independent assistance and guidance when purchasing in Tenerife includes the following:

After the notary
After the signing of the deed (your purchase) in Tenerife at the notary’s office, there are still a number of costs to be paid and a lot of formalities to be completed.
Due to the very complex bureaucracy in Tenerife, however, it is customary for a third party to take care of all further settlements, as these obligations are NOT carried out by the Notary’s Office.
