Bank guarantee new construction Spain

What is it and why is it important?

A bank guarantee, also known as a bank warranty, is a financial insurance that guarantees the down payment will be refunded if the developer fails to meet their obligations. This is a crucial instrument when purchasing new construction projects in progress in Spain.

When you buy a new home in Spain, you typically pay a down payment before the actual construction begins. Subsequently, during construction, there are usually a few more payments. These down payments help the developer finance the construction. However, new construction projects always carry a certain risk. If the developer goes bankrupt or fails to deliver the property as agreed, your down payment may be at risk.

This is where the bank guarantee comes into play. With a bank guarantee, the seller's bank takes on the obligation to refund your down payment if the seller fails to meet their contractual obligations. This provides the buyer with security and protection.

Having a bank guarantee for new construction projects offers financial security because your money is protected if the developer goes bankrupt. It also provides confidence and peace of mind.

In short, a bank guarantee is an essential safety net for buyers in the new construction market. It ensures that the investment is protected, even in the event of unforeseen circumstances.
