Testimonials for Consuelo
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!

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!!

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.

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!

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!
