Documentation required to list your property with us
When listing your property with us, we will ask for a number of documents from you. This is now required by Law, to achieve greater transparency in the Andalusian real estate market, through the provision of complete information to potential buyers so that they can make informed decisions. The intention was to formalize the necessary documentation to ensure that buyers would not be trapped in situations where the new owner could not sell, rent or reform, for example, because the property was acquired without the proper and formal permits from the town hall.
Decreto 218 requires sellers to be transparent about property information, including documentation showing that it is legal and meets all the construction regulations. This documentation must be provided to the agent listing your property for sale.
The required documentation includes the following:
First occupation license (Licencia de Primera Ocupación)
This license is issued upon completion of construction and certifies that the property was built in accordance with the planning permissions granted by the City Council, and other regulations in force at the time of construction.
This is a non-certified document issued by the Land Registry that contains information about the property: type of property, name, ownership, rights, size, type, boundaries and any loans, mortgages that are associated with the property,
Energy Efficiency Certificate (CEE)
This is a certificate that demonstrates the energy efficiency of the property so that the buyer is aware of energy costs. This requirement was established in Royal Decree 235/2013 of April 5, 2013.
IBI (Impuesto sobre Bienes Inmuebles)
IBI is a local annual tax that is paid to the Town Hall for its services. This is applicable for both residents and non-residents. Proof of payment for the current year must be presented.
The payment for garbage collection by the City Council. Poof of payment for the current year must be presented.
Documentation showing associated community fees for your property, including any outstanding debts.
The real estate agency is responsible for obtaining, maintaining, and making available to potential buyers all the aforementioned data. Buyers have the right to request this information from the real estate agent selling the property before, during or after viewing the property. This means that agents must obtain complete information from the owner before listing a property in their sales office, website, social media or on any third-party property portals. Buyers will generally request such documentation before showing interest or making an offer.
Decreto 218 does not apply to private purchases. This means that if you buy a property directly from the owner, it does not apply.
