Nota Simple in Medvilla Spanje

Nota Simple


Why you should always see the "Nota Simple" when buying your house in Spain.

The "Nota Simple" is one of the most important documents when buying a house in Spain?

It is a document that consists of no more than 3 sides of A4 format in which you can find everything about the house you want to buy. That is why this document is such an important control tool for the buyer!

Nota Simple, the sooner you request it, the better..

If you are going to buy a house in Spain, you should have the "Nota Simple" in your possession at a very early stage or at least be able to view this document. In many cases, "Nota Simple" only comes up at a later stage.

Why did I only see the Nota Simple later?

This can happen for several reasons:

The selling broker has not yet received all the information about the property from the seller. And that is why he has not yet been able to request the "Nota Simple" in the property register.
Another reason may be that the selling broker already has the document in his possession, but does not yet want to show it to the prospective buyer. The prospective buyer could use the information in the document to contact the seller directly. In that case, the selling broker is afraid that he will miss out on his commission.
The worst reason that you will see the "Nota Simple" later is that there are things in the "Nota Simple" that the selling broker would rather not have known to the prospective buyer. He waits until the preliminary purchase agreement has been signed and the buyer has made a down payment.

What is in the "Nota Simple" ? A lot, or rather everything.
