Bank repossessed properties in Spain

Bank repossessed properties in Spain for sale with Red Rose Property Spain. There are many repossessed properties for sale in Spain owned by Spanish banks. Theses properties can be purchased at a bargain price well below the market value, and can be a great opportunity for investors and buyers alike. 

Repossessed properties from the bank generally come from people that cannot meet their mortgage repayments. Once a mortgaged property is repossessed by the bank, they will try to sell the property on to recover any debt left with the Spanish bank. 

This can work well for potential property buyers, as the banks can be open to offers on repossessed properties. Spanish banks will also be more willing to offer higher mortgages, or mortgage values on the properties that they have repossessed in a bid to sell them.

Be aware, even if you are purchasing a repossessed property from the bank, you must still carry out your due diligence with a qualified Spanish conveyancing lawyer. There could be hidden traps such as unpaid taxes, community, owner’s debts or even squatters.  It is also advisable to instruct an architect, building surveyor or builder with you to check for any major structural problems with the property.

As the property has been Repossessed, we never know the condition it will be in until we enter the property. The photographs may not correspond to the current state of the property.
