Property Rights, Obligations & Disputes

This service is available across Spain

Who Is This Service For?

This legal service is primarily designed for individuals, particularly expats, who own property in Spain and find themselves in disputes with neighbouring owners or with associations of property owners, especially in the context of the new Housing Law (Law 12/2023) and the Horizontal Property Laws

Clients typically face issues related to regulatory compliance, repairs and liability disputes arising from shared common areas in urbanizations or apartment buildings. 

This service aims to navigate through the complexities of Spanish property laws, ensuring that property owners, especially those not fluent in Spanish or unfamiliar with Spain’s legal system, are adequately represented, and their interests protected in any disputes or legal processes.


There are no specific nationality or age requirements to avail of this legal service. However, clients must be property owners in Spain, encountering issues or disputes related to property laws, particularly those introduced in Law 12/2023 and the Horizontal Property Law. 

Both residents and non-residents of Spain, regardless of their visa status, can seek assistance, provided they are engaged in a legal matter concerning property ownership or community disputes within the Spanish territory.


The legal process begins with a comprehensive consultation to understand your situation and identify the relevant legal frameworks applicable. 

Subsequently, a thorough review of property documents, community statutes, and any existing dispute details is conducted. 

The lawyer then formulates a legal strategy, which may involve negotiation with opposing parties, engaging with property owner associations, or initiating legal proceedings. 

Throughout the process, the lawyer ensures compliance with Spanish property laws, representation in any legal forums, and communicates consistently with you - in English - to keep you abreast of developments.


  • Engaging with experienced English-speaking lawyers in Spain provides clients with the advantage of clear, comprehensible communication and understanding of their case without language barriers. 
  • The lawyers, well-versed in Spanish property laws, navigate through the legalities efficiently, ensuring that the client’s interests are robustly represented. 
  • Clients benefit from tailored legal advice, strategic planning, and execution of legal actions that consider their unique circumstances and objectives. 
  • Furthermore, the lawyer acts as a mediator between the client and other parties, mitigating stress and facilitating a resolution that aligns with the client’s interests.
