The process of buying a property in Spain
usually runs as follows. First, the buyer makes an offer, usually through
the seller's real estate agent. If this is accepted, then the buyer and seller sign a preliminary contract (contrato
privado de compravento) and the buyer pays a deposit, typically 10% of the purchase price. Then the agent helps
to organise property check and if there're no burdens or restrictions, a final sales contract is prepared.
