THE ONLY COMMUNITY FOR FOREIGN PURCHASERS AND HOMEOWNERS IN SPAIN

Casa Propia literally means own house. More than in any other country, in Spain it is important to be well informed. We cannot repeat it enough: practice shows that both purchasers and homeowners in every price range receive incomplete and incorrect information, and unfortunately often too late confronted with the consequences.

There are very important reasons why buyers must ensure that a property is legal and homeowners must ensure that all documents are in order. Read more about it on this website, because it is not as obvious and innocent as it seems. The community was established to help each other, to defend the interest of homeowners and purchasers.

Together we make the Spanish housing market safer and more efficient!

Stop the abuse of purchasers in Spain!

PROPERTY INSPECTION

Never buy a property without an IGP inspection in Spain!

Because of the deception and fraud on the Spanish housing market, it is necessary to protect the buyers! Due to the lack of prevention, Casa Propia has incorporated the experiences of its members into an independent home inspection, whereby the members check the professionals for ethics, reliability and professionalism. That makes the IGP the only reliable inspection in Spain, and is, besides much more certainty, a huge saving on costs for the buyer.

SERVICE

Checking essential documents for homeowners!

Homeowners do not realize it, but it is very important that to have the documents and licenses in order. Prevent your insurance from paying out damage partially or not at all, permits that not being granted or licenses for holiday rentals not being extended or declared invalid. Avoid surprises and let professionals perform an objective check.

SERVICE

Unique search function for purchasers

For most purchasers, searching is a time-consuming job, especially since you probably do not live here and want to enjoy your holiday in addition to the viewings. The addresses are not online, and when you show serious interest, properties are not as legal as suggested, if you find out. Apart from that, with so many estate agents (apart from the local ones) and private sellers, it is virtually impossible to maintain an overview. So you almost never have a really good idea of what is for sale. As a community, we have found a solution; a Search query for purchasers.

SERVICE

Guidance for buyers

Buying a property and especially looking at houses in Spain is a nice thing to do. But when it comes to finalizing the purchase, it becomes exciting. In the end you will find the perfect home yourself and you don’t want a problem home. We can imagine that you need someone who, unlike the agent of the seller, is guaranteed to be by your side. Apart from the fact that the costs are relatively low, it is actually not a cost item, a problem house certainly is.

We must find solutions for everyone with illegal properties or prescribed extensions

Even though they are often local issues, the problem is national. Too many people still live either in an illegal home (or an irregular one such as an AFO) or have a property with an illegal extension which has precribed over time. If these properties suffer major damage (for example via a flood, subsidence of fire) they depend on the benevolence of the insurance company. They may also see the value of their property affected and find it more difficult to sell in the future. This also makes it a social problem of national significance as most people have bought in good faith and have not been given the full information at the time of the purchase.

SECURITY

An arbitration committee to ensure quality

There is no better way to control the professionals than through an aritrage committee consisting of members of Casa Propia who determine whether a professional is doing his job properly. That is, apart from other preventative measures, another reason why the IGP inspection is the only truly reliable one.
