In all purchase processes, certain elements must be checked to ensure the obtainment of the so-called “licencia de segunda ocupación” which will enable you to connect the water and electricity supplies in your name once the purchase is complete.

This seemingly straightforward procedure is the one that can hinder property transfer or often leads to the frustration of a purchase when the change cannot be guaranteed.

Hence, the importance of conducting a preliminary study to understand the risks associated with the purchase. This way, you can either assume the risk or precisely determine the additional cost involved in the purchase. Having knowledge of this issue may even empower you to negotiate the price with the seller.
