        Mr. Vaello was a very effective attorney. He listened to me and could give me good advice on what legal actions to pursue. He answered my questions regarding the case and explained details so I could understand better. We did everything by text and e-mail and that seemed rather efficient.


        It would have been nice to have met once, and I had to wait sometimes for a response from him, but I know Mr. Vaello is very busy with his work.

        Having been in Barcelona for only six months, we ran into a problem with a local landlord and needed swift legal advice. I duly searched the internet and decided to plump for Advocate Abroad where upon I spoke to Oscar. Look no further. He was immediately courteous, polite, very understanding, and extremely professional. Above all, he was patient, listened precisely to what I had to say before he gave me his professional opinion of where I stood from a legal point of view. His command of the English language was faultless to the point where I felt that I could have been speaking to a native English speaker.


        As to the subject matter, within a 30 minute phone call I understood exactly where I stood from a Spanish legal point of view, acted accordingly, and the problem was successfully dealt with. And probably the nicest touch of all, once once the matter was resolved having followed his advice, and with no further advantage to either himself or Advocate Abroad, he had the courtesy and kindness to ring me personally to see how I had gone on.


        Thank you Oscar. Outstanding (not a word I use often) !!!

        Oscar was a great help throughout a difficult process as we bought a house in Barcelona. Despite significant setbacks, he was able to help us find solutions to ensure we finally managed to purchase the property.


        Thank you to Oscar for being incredibly professional and for explaining everything in a straightforward way so we understood a process which was foreign to us. I highly recommend him as a lawyer for anyone looking to buy a property in Spain.

        He really listened to my story (all the details about the issue I had), he was always clear about his strategy and never sugarcoated the possible outcome.


        I appreciated the fact he was very down-to-earth and presented me with truth about the situation, without trying to give me false hopes.


        Always professional I would totally recommend his service.

Unfinished Property Claim

Who is this Service for?

Article 1 of Spanish Law 57/1968 regarding the receipt of advanced payments towards the construction and sale of residential property in Spain, clearly establishes the legal responsibility assumed by financial institutions in whose accounts the advance payments are lodged, where the said financial institutions failed to insist on an insurance guarantee or a deposit by the developer.

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.

Our English-speaking lawyers and associated professionals can assist you with your claim against a bank in Spain.

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
  • Bring claim to the Spanish Court and obtain the return of your deposit plus interest
