Justin Culmer, United Kingdom
Alvaro was professional, approachable, and very responsive while supporting me with the formal and legal processes in assisting me purchasing my new home in Spain.
He was consistent in all communication and very informative.
To improve the service I would suggest to provide a formal summary document of all legal services and formality checks carried out on the property purchase process, (as done in the UK) as a final overall document given to the client.

Alvaro was transparent throughout the process and instilled a confidence in me that he would get the job done, which he duly did!
He was persistent and diligent with his approach, which meant that an issue that i had for 2 years was no longer one.
Regarding the above KPI's of measurement, he was top marks for all of them. I am genuinely satisfied with the service.

Unfinished Property Claim
Who is this Service for?

So, if you have made a deposit payment towards an off-plan property in Spain that was never completed, you may be able to make a claim against the bank that received the deposit monies from the Constructor, when the bank failed to insist on insurance for those monies.

What does this service consist of?
- Free assessment of your case
- Arrange the appropriate documentation to support the case: proof of payments to the developer´s bank and contracts signed
- Arrange a Power of attorney to allow our lawyers to represent you in the Spanish Courts
