If you intend to purchase a house under construction, you should know that you have the right to demand a copy of the approved technical project and of the building license, as well as a copy of the certificate of fitness for habitation. These documents are necessary to ensure that the construction company has followed all the legal requirements established by the city council.
Likewise, it is necessary to check the identity of the real owner of the plot where the property is going to be built, and whether if the owner coincides with the construction company signing the contract of sale.
Finally, it is important to be aware of the fact that the construction company is obliged to guarantee all the deposits that you are paying in advance for your property. We would like to stress the importance of this point because if you need to claim those payments back, you will be guaranteed the refunding of the total amount of money that you invested, which is why our Firm always advises requesting the bank guarantee.
If your property is not finished before the deadline stipulated in the sales contract, you can either cancel the contract or demand compensation for the damages caused by the delay.
