Great communication with Rosa and good advice around what can be a potentially complicated property market on Mallorca.
I had no idea about the importance of a cedula de habitabilidad and how difficult it can be getting water and electricity connected with out one.

- Chris Rye, Chelmsford, England
On occasions it took a little longer than we had hoped in obtaining a reply, however we do appreciate and understand that this was probably due to being away from the office, possibly in Court, or with other clients - not a criticism just an observation.
There are no improvements we can suggest, save to say, we would use Marco in the future if required.Oct 29, 2019

I'm very happy with the services received: I started with José in Alicante on various subjects whom than handed me over to Miguel for another case because he said Miguel was much more experienced in the field I needed assistance, I can appreciate professionals knowing their business.
In the beginning when I started emailing with your good selves I experienced difficulties receiving mails from advocate abroad, it was a server issue from advocate abroad, I repeatedly asked Miguel and José about it but they could not find anything wrong. At this moment I no longer experience these problems.Sep 20, 2019

Would absolutely recommend him, he understood the issue and dealt with it efficiently.Sep 18, 2019
- Ashley Wilkins, Murcia
We were delighted with the level of responsiveness and service Inma provided. Our daughter has been accepted at UCAM to study Dentistry and consequently we were helping her set up life in Murcia.
Inma was most helpful in the flat leasing process in the identification of Agents and in the Tenancy Agreement negotiation and execution after a property had been found. This together with her good general advice about how things work in Murcia and Spain have made the process far easier that would otherwise be the case. Inma was also very helpful in the NIE process.
Bravo and we are delighted to recommend Inma as a first port of call in Murcia !
Best wishes Ashley.Sep 18, 2019

The professional's responsiveness to my queries (of which there were many), her explanations and clarification of issues and her ability to come up with concrete solutions when obstacles arose, all in a timely manner (despite time differences) were a credit to her and to your company.

I would wholly recommend Miguel to anybody contemplating a house purchase in the Asturias area of Spain. His pricing was competitive and adapted to my particular requirements.
He consulted with other professionals (including the council) to help determine the expansion and future building possibilities of the land. He also undertook the necessary checks to establish there was no outstanding debt tied to the property.
Compared to UK solicitors Miguel was very much more approachable and would always respond to my queries and deliver frequent progress reports at any time of the day including weekends.
Given the complexity of the Spanish notary system it is essential you have a local solicitor who knows all the variations associated with the Asturian conveyancing system to guide you towards a successful outcome.
Even though I had a reasonable understanding of Spanish Miguel's excellent written and spoken English proved invaluable at all stages of the conveyancing process in particular the final signing of the deeds. Well done Miguel and many thanks for all your help!Aug 17, 2019
- Stephen Norton, Marbella
I had an informal, introductory meeting with Miguel and he answered all my questions including providing me with a lot more information and suggestions that I had not thought about. I found him extremely friendly and professional.
I will be using his services next year for my first Spanish Tax return and will then be in a better position to comment on the quality and price of services provided. So far everything has been very good.Aug 13, 2019

- Clare Parlour, Mallorca
Initially I had a lot of communication but as time went on it was difficult to get prompt responses and I felt frustrated by the Spanish system and lack of understanding.
It has now been transferred to the UK but this was done through the court and not the solicitor. it took 3 months for our file to turn up in the UK and I think that was more by luck.
More regular communication especially as we didn't know the Spanish legal system.Jul 09, 2019
