Bufete Frau IT'S PARADISE TIME

Positive balance

After the impact of the pandemic, the real estate sector faced great challenges for the future. In the months of March and April the sector's indicators pointed to a great standstill in activity and prices, however, after the confinement it was reactivated very quickly.

According to the Balearic Association of Real Estate Services (ABSI) it can be affirmed that the real estate transactions during 2020 were similar to 2019, with which we can assure that the health pandemic has hardly influenced the real estate activity.

Expectations for 2021 are optimistic as sales are expected to increase, however, there is great uncertainty about the rise or fall of prices. With this, the way out of this situation will generate a wave of optimism and consumption so that the housing market consolidates as a reality and an investment opportunity.

Is there such a thing as a free sale of property?

The vast majority of people understand that they can proceed with the sale as they wish and when they wish with their property, but this is not the case. There is often a limitation on the power of sale that can even nullify the sale. This is called the right of pre-emptive acquisition: Pre-emption and Retraction, that occurs between neighbours of certain types of rural properties as well as when a property is owned by several owners.

The right of pre-emptive acquisition is the right that gives the holder the right to acquire a certain thing in preference to any other if the owner has decided to sell it.

Within this right there are two other rights: Pre-emption and Retraction. The right of Pre-emption gives the holder the right to acquire in preference to a thing that the owner wants to sell and is carried out before the sale. This means that the owner of the thing has an obligation to sell it. And the right of Retraction is the right that the person has to subrogate the conditions established in the contract with the owner of the thing that is being sold, and it is carried out once the contract has been made or even registered in the Land Registry.
