    My initial call to your service desk was responded to by Oscar very quickly.

    I appreciated his time as I outlined my issue, a problem with the building community and administrators. At the end of ...the call he provided clear guidance on next steps.

    Furthermore he quickly turned around the issue with an excellent drafted response for which I could not of hoped to be better worded. It was comprehensive and aligned perfectly with what I felt was needed.

    Excellent value for money and most definitely I would highly recommend Oscar.

    We contacted this law firm on several occasions with different questions (immigration, work contracts, rent of property, purchase of property) and they could always give us a thorough answer to our qu...estions.

    The lawyers provided us all necessary information and helped us to choose the best solution. They were very attentive and helpful. As we don’t speak Spanish, they accompanied us to all government offices.

    I thought my case would be tricky and I on my own would never have completed without him. He was a star. I have recommended him to some friends of mine who want to sell their business.

    As for value... for money, he was spot on, and very approachable. Full marks from me.

 

Our English-speaking lawyers have represented a diverse client base in every aspect of property law in Barcelona. Our real estate clients include property owners, property managers, investors and individual landlords,  and we advise and represent them in every aspect of property law including eviction proceedings.

The express eviction process for obtaining the return of your Spanish property is divided into two parts:


Step 1

Your lawyer makes a formal demand for payment of the outstanding rent from the tenant. This requires the following information:

  • The name and addresses of the landlord and the tenant
  • The date and location of the rental contract
  • The amount of rent owed

At this point there is a pause for one month as the tenant has the opportunity to stay the proceedings by paying the outstanding rent. This is a once-only opportunity. If the tenant fails to pay the outstanding rent then your lawyer will proceed to step 2.

Should you wish to, you may handle step 1 by yourself though you may prefer to leave it to the lawyers to manage the entire process on your behalf as that way you do not need to worry about complications arising due to language difficulties.

 


Step 2

Formally petition the court for a Notice to Evict.

A petition is  made to the court to issue an eviction order. The court will issue a date by which the matter is to be resolved and the eviction carried-out failing a successful opposition by the tenant.

If the petition is unopposed and no rent paid then there is no need to even proceed with the hearing and the process moves directly to executing the eviction order on the date given at the time the order was originally petitioned.

 

Documentation Required

Your lawyer will usually request the following documents:

  • The rental agreement
  • Copy of the deeds of the property
  • Unpaid bills (pertaining to the rent or utilities)

            

Code of Reasonable Fees

While this law firm has been hand-picked on the basis of it’s particular suitability for managing those property issues faced by non-residents, clients will not face elevated charges or fees as a result.

Our clients can expect to receive a quotation that is at or below the recommended guideline prices by the Law Society of Barcelona.

 

Free Support Services Included

When combined with the free and innovative Advocate Abroad support services you can be sure that you are obtaining completely transparent legal services from registered and regulated English-speaking lawyers in Spain. These support services include:

  • Verification of the regulatory status of your lawyer.
  • Fees as recommended by the Spanish Law Societies
