The Spanish land register is a public register. Anyone who has a legitimate interest may, at the Spanish Land Registry (Registro de la Propiedad) apply for a Land Registry. A legitimate interest is accepted as a request by a lawyer. To obtain a title deed, it is necessary to identify the property. The identification of the site and requesting a land register extract is relatively easy if you have the registration number D. It can be difficult, if only the address or even just the location is known.
It is also helpful to the first and last name of the current owner. There are different forms of land registry extract. We distinguish the simple abstract of title (“nota simple”) and qualified land register . In general, land is a simple statement. He is just a (binding) information and contains the following information: description of the property (“Description”): Land size, cultivated area Registered Owner (Actual”) Type of acquisition (eg purchase) Date of the registration (“date) loads The qualified Land Registry is a public document and contains additional information (eg, previous owner). It is used eg in the context of litigation.
If a proper request is made and describes the property closely, you will normally receive after 4-7 days of the requested Land Registry. In the case of qualified land extract the grant can last much longer. Caution: The Spanish land – like the German land register – be incorrect, as the acquisition and loss of property may also take place outside the land register. In Spain, for example, the property be acquired by a private contract / sold. But you can from people who are registered in the Land Register as the owner acquire the property in good faith. You therefore should always check the legal situation can be from a qualified lawyer.
