Your real estate agent should be prepared to advise you on all the steps you need to take to acquire a home with the maximum guarantees.

Procedures for the sale:
The real estate purchase agreement.
In the purchase and sale of a home, it is common that, prior to the public deed, a private contract between seller and buyer, called pre-contract, is signed. This contract is not mandatory, although it is always done when a promoter sells, and between private parties it is also widely used.
The Law considers the private document as a perfectly valid way of formalizing a purchase or sale, which means that if a document of this kind is signed, it will be legally bound to comply with all its contents, provided that it is not contrary to the Law. It can be exempted from compliance, arguing that what was agreed upon at the time is no longer appropriate, or that what was signed was not known.
Hence the importance of advising oneself properly before signing a document of this nature. The notary does not intervene in the formalization of this contract, but can inform of its content and solve all doubts that arise.
Some advice that any notary will give is that nothing is signed that is not sufficiently understood, or if you are not fully convinced. In addition they will advise you to use the administrative services of a real estate agent who is legally registered in the country where the property is being purchased or sold. Who must be capable to provide you with all the correct information.
