Client testimonials

"Rosa proved herself to be extremely professional, helpful and approachable. I would go as far to say if it were not for her expert advice we would not be in the fortunate position of having recently completed on our property.

We were working with a small budget for Mallorca and it took us 3 years to find the right property with all the right paperwork in place. During that time Rosa was there for us offering advice, explaining the rules and regulations of the Spanish property system even instructing an Architect on our behalf for one property we had initially and possibly fool heartedly agreed.

During Covid Rosa having Power of Attorney meant an inability to travel did not prevent us from completing on our property, within the agreed time frame. Rosa’s written and spoken English is perfect and she always answered emails promptly, she went above and beyond to keep us informed at every stage of the purchase and ensure we understood what was happening and when the funds were expected to be available.

To quote my wife Rosa was more helpful, easier to pay and offered better advice than any solicitor we have had in the U.K."

1Who is this Service for?

Becoming a landlord – either intentionally or accidentally – is increasingly common in most countries. Likewise, many people now derive an income from the rental of properties they own in other countries.

This may take the form of holiday lets – usually with the assistance of professional property agents or Air BnB – or it could be a long-term rental to an individual or family who would use the property as their residential home.

When considering entering into a long-term lease agreement, many questions arise, such as what rights and obligations do landlords have as against tenants, how are disputes dealt with, what happens if a tenant fails to pay their rent or inflicts damage to the landlord’s property.

The first step however, is to ensure that a legally valid lease is signed by the tenant.

2What does this service consist of?

  • Drafting of a standard lease or one that accords with your particular requirements and that conforms with the applicable laws
  • Advice on your rights and obligations when renting a property in this country
