      Martha Kimes, Scottsdale, Arizona USA

      Francisco was incredibly responsive (and quick).


      Unlike American attorneys (and I know, because I am one), he didn't even bill me for a few follow-up emails/calls that he made on my behalf which he easily could have done.


      I was supremely happy with his legal services.

      JP, Ireland

      From the outset, Rosa clearly explained the services.


      Buying a property abroad is a daunting experience but she made it very easy to understand. Anything that Rosa said she would do/carry out was done immediately. The whole process was carried out efficiently, effectively and without delays.


      Without having met Rosa personally, her whole approach was friendly, professional and helpful. Any questions we had were answered promptly. We would highly recommend Rosa to any prospective clients.


      When we finally met Rosa in person, she was lovely. We would have no hesitation in recommending Rosa.

    • Mr KJB
      Mr KJB, Cordoba

      Francisco is still finalising some business for us but we are happy to give feedback now. He has provided us with the highest level of legal advice and made the whole process relatively easy for us and without undue stress.


      He was quick to respond and gave his advice in a very logical way and got to the point without fuss. His conversational and written English is first class!


      He carried his authority very professionally especially when having to deal with some difficult people (not us!) and he was able to bring the matter to a successful conclusion within a few weeks as opposed to many months had we done it alone.


      We could not have wished for a better lawyer to take us through a complicated process.


      Thank you Francisco!

      Our lawyer (Francisco) was very responsive. In a complex matter it needed some additional explanation via email until he fully understood what we were talking about, but then he understood the case and gave us very good and helpful advice.


      In the end he recommended not to proceed with the case which we followed. It was absolutely good value for the money we paid.

Forced Property Sale

Who is this Service for?

A common problem faced by separating couples is, what to do with the foreign holiday home. Sometimes the couple decide to put the property in the name of one, while the other takes an equivalent property elsewhere. On other occasions, agreement is not possible, and one co-owner wishes to divest themselves of an asset that they maybe they no longer use. However, without the agreement of their co-owner, this is complex. A forced sale is possible, but expensive.

What does this service consist of?

  • Initial discussion with an English-speaking lawyer specialising in property law to determine the co-owners specific situation and advice on the options available
  • Attempt negotiation with the other co-owner to try to reach an agreement to sell the property, it being in everyone’s financial interest
  • Upon failure to reach agreement, legal proceedings can be initiated to obtain a Court Order to force a sale of the property at public auction
  • A public auction is to be avoided as a very low bid can potentially take the property – potentially by the other co-owner - which is why we recommend that your lawyer attends the auction on your behalf to monitor the auction.

Property Sale 3% Reclaim

Who is this Service for?

When a non-resident owner of a property in Spain sells their property, the purchaser is obliged by law to deposit 3% of the purchase price directly with the Spanish tax authority (AETA) in lieu of payment of all taxes due on the property ownership. So, this is the Spanish government’s way of ensuring that vendors pay Capital Gains tax and also any non-resident property tax. While this service is frequently offered by unqualified individuals in the property sector, it can often be a mistake to rely on them as the procedure is rather more complex than they may have anticipated and requires a good understanding of taxation and of course a high level of Spanish.

What does this service consist of?

  • Initial discussion with an English-speaking lawyer specialising in property law to determine the amount that may be reclaimed
  • Submission of any missing returns to the AEAT, if necessary
  • Submission of reclaim of 3% withholding tax
  • Payment of the relevant amount to the vendor’s bank account

Property Title Transfer

Who is this Service for?

For those who wish to terminate a co-ownership – either as a result of the termination of a personal relationship or the end of a commercial buy-to-let business partnership, the ownership of a property must be dealt with carefully to ensure that no inadvertent costs are incurred. Usually if the reason for the need to transfer the title of a property is a result of a divorce, then following the appropriate procedure, this can be achieved without attracting taxation and other costs. This may not be the case where an unmarried couple separate, or in the case of the termination of a commercial partnership

What does this service consist of?

  • Initial analysis of the specific circumstances of the ownership and the relationship between the co-owners
  • Arrange any documentation required, including foreign divorce agreements
  • Prepare the property deeds for the transfer of the title

Residential Lettings

Who is this Service for?

  • Providing assistance to either landlord or tenant
  • Information on appropriate locations for residential locations locally
  • Assistance to enlist appropriate real estate agencies.
  • Review of the Tenancy Agreement and signature.

Accordingly, those planning to let out holiday homes abroad for commercial gain would be well advised to ensure they comply with the law and register with the appropriate register.

  • Free assessment of your case
  • Arrange the appropriate documentation to support the case: proof of payments to the developer´s bank and contracts signed
