Sometimes the couple decide to put the property in the name of one, while the other takes an equivalent property elsewhere. On other occasions, agreement is not possible, and one co-owner wishes to divest themselves of an asset that they maybe they no longer use.

Evictions in SpainWhat is Eviction?

Eviction in Spain is the judicial process by which a landlord may have a tenant removed from their property for breach of the rental contract, usually failure to pay the agreed rent. The landlord may then use the property either personally or rent it to another tenant.

In addition to obtaining the return of the property free of occupation, the landlord is entitled to receive any outstanding monies owed under the rental agreement.

    I was extremely happy with Pedro,and Ana. They were honest,and answered my queries promptly.


    Pedro had to evict my squatter tenants, and then organised an estate agent to sell my apt. This agent undertook renovating the apt, and got me a good price.


    Pedro and his brilliant co-worker Ana finalised the sale and I received the money into my account, without me ever setting a foot in Spain.(Power of attorney).


    I will be recommending Pedro to friends, who are going to sell their apartment in Torrevieja. I highly recommend him.

    Juan Ignacio met me in Almeria and with skill and persistence was able to deal with the eviction of a non paying tenant in a very short time, and avoided long and drawn out court processes.(The time factor was important because after gaining access it became apparent that the occupant was rapidly trashing the place.).


    At all times he maintained personal contact with continuous updates during the process.


    A great bloke, great job done and good value.

    Hopefully he can do the same for when I sell the place.
