Testimonials for Consuelo
- Brenda Killigrew, Murcia
I had a direct phone call from Consuelo , within 24 hours of my first email contact . Was very clear and explained the next stages really well over the telephone.
The continued emails , were consistent and very helpful . Consuelo dealt with all the stages with a efficient process , that has made the application for the Tourist Licence for my property in Spain very easy. Her persistence with getting the Guardia Civil to issue passwords was impressive , for me to upload information to them as required by law in Spain.

Consuelo explained and took care of everything. She is easy to get in touch with and a pleasure to deal with.
Having to deal with Spanish probate laws and procedures was overwhelming but Consuelo made it so straight forward.Oct 07, 2020
- Mark Underhill, Mazarron
We had a legal problem in Spain and the allocated solicitor, Consuelo, helped us solve the issue. Right from the beginning she was extremely professional and understanding of our needs. It was obvious that she knew exactly what was required.
We felt completely at ease and presented very knowledgeable in respect of legal procedures. I would highly recommend the Advocate Abroad service to anyone in a tight spot in need of legal help.
In terms of what could have been improved, maybe time from initial phone call requesting service to client contact could be a bit quicker, but that's the only thing.Sep 29, 2020
- Steve Riley, Benidorm
Buying a house in Spain was a daunting prospect but we had found the place and just needed to go for it!
After a quick Google search for English speaking solicitors, I contacted Advocate Abroad, after speaking to someone for less than a minute I was told I would be contacted by their solicitor, Consuelo within the next couple of hours.
My phone rang within minutes, it was Consuelo and she explained all I needed to know about the legal requirements prior to making a purchase and after an offer is accepted. She explained the differences between a private purchase and a company purchase, and gave us enough information in that initial phone call to put our minds at ease and helped us understand the Spanish house buying processes.
Consuelo then went on to arrange our NIE numbers, make an appointment with the notary, dealt with the estate agents, acted as attorney with our bank, and completed most of the legal requirements within a three week period just before lockdown hit. Over the lockdown period Consuelo sorted out electric, water and taxes and explained everything clearly and precisely over email and WhatsApp. Once Spain relaxed it’s measures, Consuelo was quick to finalise everything, even met our Spanish friends to hand over keys and sent photos!
The service provided is incomparable with our British conveyancing lawyers, (we truly did get a clearly explained, personal service at an excellent price!) and although everything after our offer had to be dealt with remotely with us back in England, there was no doubt we were being looked after fully and competently.
I would not hesitate to recommend Advocate Abroad and I would certainly recommend you ask for the fantastic services from Consuelo!Aug 14, 2020
- Robert Bolton, La Manga del Mar Menor
We couldn't have asked for anyone better than Consuelo in helping us buy our apartment in La Manga. She guided us through the process either by email or phone and made sure that we fully understood everything. This of course gave us complete peace of mind.
Consuelo is an extremely professional person but also very personable. We even had lock down to contend with but Consuelo always kept us updated. Excellent service!!Aug 04, 2020
- Karen Webster, El Campello
Consuelo went above and beyond expectations. We could not get to Spain to view the property we liked due to the COVID-19 travel ban so Consuelo viewed it on our behalf and sent videos.
She went through the whole buying process on our behalf. Communication throughout was excellent. Consuelo kept us informed of every step and sent copies of all documentation. Considering the amount of work she did under very difficult circumstances the fee was very reasonable.Aug 01, 2020
- Michael Armstrong, La Manga del Mar Menor
Consuelo has the highest praise and gratitude from this family by somehow reclaiming inheritance tax from Madrid. Previous solicitors left a mess,partial/incorrect and missing documents were received very late.
Despite obstacles such as denial from tax office and virus Consuelo promptly, courteously and professionally simply got on with the job and succeeded against all odds. We cannot thank her enough!Jul 27, 2020
- Daniel Stageman, El Campello
Consuelo worked very hard and her fee was more than reasonable.Oct 02, 2019
- Penny Toomey, La Manga
I could not recommend Consuelo highly enough to choose as a lawyer. She went above and beyond what was required when working for me.
She is reliable, professional and kept me informed of the progress of my case and what she was doing at all times.
Consuelo has an ethical outlook and a strong sense of what is right. She was unfazed when others tried to block her efforts to help me and was always reassuring that we would get there.
Her spoken and written English is excellent so she can work with both English and Spanish (she did for me). Thank you Consuelo!Apr 16, 2019
- Catherine, Alicante
Consuelo was extremely helpful, she couldn't have done more. I would definitely recommend her to friends.Feb 15, 2019
Who is this Service for?
If you have already decided on the type of business you want to run, and where you wish to locate it, then the main decision you will need to make is whether you should set it up as a limited company or as a sole trader.
This can be extremely important as you can save a considerable amount of money depending on which option you choose. Both have benefits and drawbacks.
Self-employed is of course cheaper to set-up and less costly to manage since the reporting requirements are lesser than in the case of limited companies.
On the other hand, limited companies do limit your liability in the case of a claim against your business, which depending on the type of business could be the only reason you need to opt for this type of structure. Otherwise, a limited company is rather more flexible when there are a number of partners or when the company has other, more complex attributes.
What does this service consist of?
- Ensure legal interests are protected, especially when creating a company with several partners.
- Drawing-up a notarial contract according to your guidelines, properly prepared and tailored to your objectives.
- Ensuring that your Articles of Association contain all necessary elements.
- Make sure that the application is made in accordance with the requirements of the Commercial Companies Code. With the power of attorney you will have granted to us, on your behalf we will register your company at all Government institutions and offices required by law.
- Applying for company tax and identification numbers.
- Obtaining all necessary documents, permits and approvals.
- Dealing with bank formalities connected with setting up of the company bank account.
- Once completed the registration process, we will draw up all other corporate documents required by the Commercial Companies Code.
