Buying properties at Auction in Gran Canaria

If you are interested in buying properties at auction we can help you find the property you need and assist with the whole purchasing process.

Repossessed Properties

Due to the high level of unemployment and high number of home owners with negative equity there are many bank repossessions in Gran Canaria which are sold at public auction.

We have over 10 years experience purchasing properties at auction and are experts in the legal process that encompasses any purchase. We purchase properties both for ourselves to restore and for our many investment clients.

Our Service

Purchasing at auction can offer significant savings for the house buyer, however it is not easy and is not recommended without expert advice and good legal support.

Every week we review all the auctions in the Canary Islands, assess all potential properties both from a legal and financial perspective and create a list of suitable properties for purchase. Amongst many other things we check if the property has outstanding debts, the state of the ownership, the legality of the building and the potential to reform or extend. In our team we have a lawyer, an architect and an engineer to review all potential properties.
