Legal Advice


Do you need to use a Lawyer to buy a property in Spain?

A question that we often get asked is “Do I need to use a Lawyer to buy a property in Spain?

The best legal advice and answer to this is a very definite Yes! We would advise anyone considering buying property anywhere in the world that they should use a lawyer to protect their interests. The vast majority of horror stories that we hear can be traced back to not taking the appropriate advice at the appropriate time.

This advice is especially poignant following the recent problems we have seen with the licensing issues throughout the Costas. Whilst many of these issues have now been resolved and it is easy to check the legality of the property you are buying, the use of a lawyer will give you that final “peace of mind” that you are buying legal property.

We also get asked whether it is better to use a Lawyer in your home country or one based in Spain. Again we would always recommend using a Lawyer with local knowledge as this can make the whole process very much more straightforward.

We have a panel of Lawyers in Spain who are multi-lingual and able to cover the requirements of all Nationalities. If you would like to speak to a Lawyer we will arrange for an independent lawyer to make contact with you.
