When making a purchase, or a sale, of a home, we must carry out the procedures of various important documents for the transaction. One of these essential documents is the simple note of the house in question.
The simple note of the registry provides us with important information about the state of the home, so before buying a house that interests us we will have to go to the registrars’ association to request a simple note.
From Homewatch we can help you with this process as with all the others, if you need help requesting a simple note, contact us:
What is a simple property note?
A simple registry note is a document in which relevant information about the home comes to us. The simple note indicates who is the real owner of the property, the legal status of the home.
Thanks to these data we can know everything about the situation of the home, for example, if it has charges such as mortgages or if its use is limited in some way. We will also be able to know in the name of which person, persons or entity the house is deeded, as well as all the data that helps to accurately describe the house, such as the location of the address, the useful and built surface, the cadastral reference, etc.
As we can see, the simple note tells us a lot of very useful information if we want to buy a home, and this information is completely reliable, since the simple note is issued by the State Property Registry itself.
What is the simple note for?
Knowing all the information that the simple note contains, we can clearly see some of the utilities that the simple registry note can give us.
We will be able to confirm the data of the true owner of the property, as well as that he does not have any charge on the property and that the economic or legal situation of the same is up to date and without any type of problems that could complicate the acquisition.
The simple note also helps us to check the correct data of the house such as its location or its exact square meters, as well as its complete cadastral reference.
