Legal Considerations when buying a second-hand car in Spain

car

Many of those who own a property in Spain also like to keep a car here as well as it gives them much more freedom to travel the country and visit places of interest.

In particular it is popular among foreign residents and non-residents to buy a car from a fellow countryman who previously lived in Spain and has decided to return to their country of origin. The purchase may therefore take place either in Spain or in your country of origin, sometimes via specialist dealers. On a number of occasions these transactions have become problematic, and even financially disastrous, because the necessary procedure was not followed. Below we provide some advice if you are planning to acquire a car in this way.

 

Hire-Purchase Agreements

Firstly it is important to check if the person purporting to be the owner of said vehicle, actually is the owner, or at least has the authority to sell it to you. You should be careful to ensure that there are no outstanding payments or restrictions on sale relating to the car. This is important as a car could be subject to a hire-purchase agreement, with payments remaining. Accordingly, until those payments are made, the hire-purchase company may demand payment of the remaining instalments or take possession of the car. The existence of a hire-purchase agreement with respect to a car you are interested in purchasing can be checked at Tráfico, the Spanish government equivalent of the DVLA in the UK.

In general we would not recommend agreeing to purchase a car that has not been viewed and test-driven or indeed to offers that appear too good to be true – they usually are. It is also usually a good idea to have a mechanic give the car a once over to confirm that the condition of the engine corresponds to the description provided by the owner.

 

Has the car passed it’s Spanish MOT?

Once you have verified those aspects of the car, it is advisable to buy or prepare a short contract of sale where the technical characteristics of the car are specified as well as any existing defects, the completion of any MOT (In Spanish – ITV: Inspección Técnica de Vehículos), time and date of the purchase, form of payment etc. You will need to make sure that you have seen and receive a copy of the previous owner’s identity document, or it can be difficult to register the vehicle in your name.

Once this has been taken care of, it is important to verify that the change in ownership has been inscribed in the relevant government department as well as ensure that the corresponding taxes are paid. Finally you will need to ensure that the car is insured – there are a number of companies offering services in English.

If these guidelines are followed, you should manage to avoid any nasty surprises connected with buying a second-hand car in Spain. Of course, you can always contact a lawyer to act on your behalf, and you will not need to worry about any of the details.

    Meeting and appointing Rosa was like a breath of fresh air. Having used several other lawyers in Palma de Mallorca without any success whatsoever, Rosa stepped in to a complicated case in its 7th year and turned it around almost overnight.

    Within months the ball was rolling again and she finalised the case where others had just given up. Rosa always responded to my emails and phone calls and was an absolute pleasure to deal with.

    I will not be using anyone else from now on.

    Understanding Spanish law regarding buying and selling properties is a minefield for English speakers. Cristina provided the legal expertise, the translation of legal documents, explanations for all issues, and solutions for our challenges.


    Also, she provides confidence and reassurance that what we are doing is in our best interests and within the law - very important when working in a foreign country.


    In summary, she is an excellent professional that we are so pleased we found and will continue to use for all our legal matters.


    I think you have a perfect solution for supporting people abroad. I was lucky to find you on the internet. Perhaps you could promote your services to all estate agents abroad, so more people can get access to your service when buying or selling abroad.

    Overall it was great. Rosa always answered all questions asked and provided clear, concise and well explained answers.


    When there was a delay in responding she did offer an apology which was appreciated. Rosa always instilled a sense of confidence that she knew exactly what was going on, what I was asking, and what the applicable law was.


    When not a Spanish local and dealing with her remotely, this provided great comfort in a sensitive matter.

    Juan was extremely helpful during every part of the purchase. As I was buying an older property there were slight complications but Juan explained every issue and managed to work through the difficulties with supreme efficiency.


    Also there was a ridiculous situation with my Spanish bank account where I could not access the money even though it was in the account. Thankfully I had given Juan power of attorney and he managed to sort-out the problem.


    He went above and beyond the call of duty and I am very grateful for all his help. I would strongly recommend him to anyone looking to buy in the Almeria region.

    Rosa never stopped working very hard, she went way above what she needed to do...she never gave up on me and always did more than I thought anyone would.


    I am so blessed I got Rosa to help me I couldn't have gotten a better lawyer she's the best.


    Thank you Rosa from the bottom of my heart you are a wonderful person, I am so grateful to you.

    Lidia, was extremely helpful and patient throughout the process.


    She was very attentive and responsive and explained everything in detail.


    Lidia represents excellent value for money and the solutions she recommended were very beneficial, especially as you hear and read about a lot of horror stories on the web.


    Lidia was the best legal representative i have employed and i will always use her where Spanish legal affairs are concerned.

    I can't compliment my solicitor enough.


    From our initial meeting right through to my ultimate divorce (with no unpleasant surprises the entire duration of the entire process), he immediately responded to my many enquiries, always had mine and my daughter's best interests at the forefront of any considerations and was well worth every penny of his extremely reasonable fee.


    Excellent value for money, totally approachable and very professional and understanding. I highly recommend him and will continue to retain his services for other matters in the future.

    Rosa was exceptional at helping me setting up my business abroad.


    This was a big move for me and Rosa fully explained everything to me in detail so I had a full and clear understanding of the legal side of things as well as always promptly responding to any emails or questions I had.


    I couldn’t of asked for a better lawyer and I would 100% recommend Rosa to anyone who is deciding to move abroad.


    Great service could not be happier.
