Buying property


Purchasing property in Barcelona can be a daunting experience

At BPC we have a long established network of trustworthy property agents that we work with to help fullfill your requirements

Through our accumulative years of experience we are able to guide our Clients through this total process. We are not salesmen; we are consultants that provide a service that allows you to purchase the property of your dreams that satisfies your objectives, not ours.

BPC also thoroughly understands the many needs of International Clients. We believe before you can start looking for your ideal property you need to understand where you would like to live or invest, how large, or small a property you require, how many bedrooms and bathrooms and how much you would like to spend.


We provide the following SET FEE services:



There are broad differences between areas in Barcelona, from the hustle & bustle of El Raval, Las Ramblas and L’Eixample areas, to the more laid back Gracia or the vibrancy of Borne and the charm of Barri Gotic. Our BIP service is provided from the comfort of our office, where we help you identify the ideal area for you to select your investment. This helps ensure that prior to starting to view specific apartments, you are only looking in the areas where you would contemplate investing.



Our philosophy is that it is always best to totally understand what you want in a property (number of bedrooms, bathrooms etc.), your budget and exactly the area where you want to purchase so that we can organise a pleasant and exciting apartment selection viewing excursion rather than a trudge looking at properties that you would never consider.



Understanding what you want to spend and how much you need to invest is critical to our clients satisfaction. We help you understand the exact costs of purchasing, establishing and maintaining a lifestyle or property investment in Barcelona.



After finding a suitable property and prior to starting the negotiation process we most strongly recommend that the Client accepts our Building Inspection Service. This service is a set fee and is carried out by a registered Builder who, amongst other things, checks the structural integrity of the building. He is also able to advise if there are hidden beams above the ceiling, or covered brickwork, what walls are structural and where services are located. These matters are critical if a renovation is anticipated, as removal of internal walls and exposing beams and traditional brickwork may be very desirable.



In most cases it is possible to purchase for below the asking price of a property. We guide you through this process to help ensure you pay the correct price for your investment.



Part of our BIP business includes arranging all utility services such as local authorities, water, gas, electricity and fibre optic high speed internet for our Clients together with guiding and enlisting you in your property Community of Neighbour scheme.



BIP further provides assistance in helping you settle into your new home. Initially we support you in establishing yourself in your new community with practical advice on even simple matters like the best supermarkets, pharmacies or other specialist stores to shop, contact details for doctors, dentists, medical specialist and emergency services.

Do not hesitate to contact us and enquire about our SET FEE services.


At BPC we understand what it is like to be a newcomer to Barcelona. It is often challenging to understand the differing advise on establishing your residency and the legal impediments to purchasing or leasing a property in Barcelona. Using our own experiences we have established a portfolio of services to enable you to navigate these problems with greater ease and comfort.


At BPC our Legal Service provides advice and assistance on all matters of residency and immigration matters, including NIE (Foreign National ID Number) and residency applications if needed. We also support clients in establishing banking relationships, drafting and reviewing every stage of the property purchase process including all due diligence, tax compliance and property deed registration.


This is a complicated and confusing area and one that can be extremely frustrating if you are unaware of the exact requirements and the correct procedures. We have witnessed independent applicants leaving their official residency interviews in tears with total frustration after waiting in line, for sometimes 3 to 4 hours, and then being told that their application is incomplete, or a document is in the wrong language or out of date.

At times, it would appear as though some city officials take great pleasure and delight in frustrating the applicant process. Further, if your do not have a sufficient understanding of the nuances of the process, together with fluent Spanish you may waste inordinate time endeavouring to gain your residency without BPC’s experienced support. At BPC we understand the relevance in advising our Clients on their appropriate residency status in Spain when they are seeking to purchase a property. Our service provides “hands on” support in your residency applications and establishing bank accounts.

BPC have close relationships with a number of banks and we can therefor provide information and introductions to enable you to set up banking facilities and source finance at the best rates and with a manager you will feel comfortable with. This service is available with Spanish, French or English speaking Bank Officers. There can be hidden costs in establishing a bank account or mortgage in Spain.


We try to make certain that you talk with the right Banks and Managers to establish a healthy and open relationship. We are happy to introduce you to the Bank Managers we use to finance our own investments. We can inform you of the mistakes that can be made when financing your own projects and at BPC we try our best to make sure that you benefit from our personal experience.


BPC believes it is critical to deal with people that you feel comfortable with. Accordingly, BPC provides these recommendations and introductions free of any charge and we never accept any “kick back” from a financial institution. BPC will help you understand all the costs associated with your investment so that you can financially provide for all costs prior to purchasing your property.


At BPC we do not think our job is done after you settle on your property or we hand over your refurbished apartment to you.


We understand from “first-hand experience” that things can go wrong or you can find yourself in an unusual predicament and may need a helping hand. We have had those gut-wrenching realisations that, we have locked our keys (and spare keys) in the apartment, couldn’t make a taxi driver understand directions, or in one case, couldn’t convince a car salesman that we wanted to really buy a car!


BPC provides assistance should you find yourself in any difficulty or arejust in need of advice on any matter. This may include things like the best way to obtain membership at Barcelona Football Club, finding a good restaurant or attraction, and so on.


Our door is always open and we always enjoy past Clients dropping in to tell us all their news andexciting experiences as they settle into their new home town Barcelona.
