Legal and Technical Aspects of Buying in Spain
Rather than rehash information that is already readily available and well-presented
elsewhere, we would direct you to the website of
John Howell & Co, who are a London-based firm of solicitors who specialise in acting on behalf of people buying abroad, principally in Spain, Portugal and France.
Having said this, we actually believe that it is preferable in practice to use a locally based solicitor who will be familiar with the local nuances pertaining to the area in question, and who will also be better equipped to deal with the local Notary etc. In Spain, successful business is all about relationships – which is why we ourselves spend so much time there developing contacts and so on (well, that’s our excuse anyway). We are very happy to recommend a local solicitor who we know personally in most areas of the Costa del Sol.
