April 24, 2024

Absolutely, getting a professional home inspection is highly recommended before buying a house in Spain. Here’s why:

  • Unearthing hidden problems: A professional inspector can uncover issues you might miss during a viewing, like structural problems, faulty wiring, leaks, or roof damage.
  • Informed negotiation: The inspection report gives you leverage when negotiating the price. If repairs are needed, you can use the report to justify a lower offer.
  • Peace of mind: Knowing exactly what condition the house is in will give you peace of mind moving forward.

There are two main types of inspections to consider in Spain:

  • Technical Building Inspection (ITE): This mandatory inspection, required for most residential buildings over a certain age, focuses on the overall structural integrity and safety of the building.
  • Private Home Inspection: This voluntary inspection goes beyond the ITE and provides a more detailed assessment of the property’s condition, including electrical systems, plumbing, roofing, and potential for future renovations.
