        Rafael was extremely professional when we approached him in a complete panic over a burofax we received in Spanish from a neighbour. He knew exactly what we should do.


        He diffused the situation with his knowledge of the law in Spain. The information has been left on file with him should we ever need to refer back in the future.


        Kindest regards

        I was extremely happy with Rafael during my case. He always responded promptly to any questions I had. I found both his spoken and written English to be excellent, even with complex legal matters.


        He explained any query I had very well and if there was anything I was unsure of he explained thoroughly. I was extremely impressed with the level of professionalism throughout the process together. I would highly recommend Rafael to anyone needing a lawyer in Spain. It was a pleasure to work with him.

        Very helpful, especially as English and Spanish law has it's differences and my final document - a testament -  required the services of a notary and the final translation.


        A pleasure to meet Rafael and to discuss my needs and he made the whole process straightforward with lots of common sense solutions. ***** 5 stars and highly recommended.

        Rafael was always there for me. He catered to my schedule rather than me to his.

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
