Rafael was always available to help and assist me, even if it was a case of me worrying! Which I really appreciated because the process was stressful at times and involved lots of preparation.

- Brenda Killigrew, Murcia
I had a direct phone call from Consuelo , within 24 hours of my first email contact . Was very clear and explained the next stages really well over the telephone.
The continued emails , were consistent and very helpful . Consuelo dealt with all the stages with a efficient process , that has made the application for the Tourist Licence for my property in Spain very easy. Her persistence with getting the Guardia Civil to issue passwords was impressive , for me to upload information to them as required by law in Spain.
Thank you Regards Brenda KilligrewNov 29, 2020

I both purchased and sold a property in Spain utilising Francisca's services in both instances. I felt it was essential to use a lawyer as I am from the UK and this was my first experience of buying and selling in Spain and the system, process and tax requirements are very different and I wanted someone experienced and professional to oversee everything and 'hold my hand' through the process.
It seems that most Spaniards do not utilise a lawyer or use an independent property surveyor and the inmobiliaria/estate agent does a huge amount of additional work compared to what they do back home. This combined with the arras (deposit of thousands of Euros paid directly to the seller to 'secure' the property and take it off the market) made me nervous as it was so different to what I was used to in the UK - in some ways it's a lot better system.
Like most reading this review, I did a huge amount of internet research when looking for property to buy in Spain and from experience have found that there are many companies set up by Brits and other non-Spaniards that are looking to take advantage of first time buyers from their native countries by putting up flashy websites and charging exorbitant fees - without exception I found that the Spanish inmobiliaria/estate agent, lawyers, etc. were far more professional, hard working and able to get things done at a fair price. The challenge is, if like me, your Spanish language skills are poor to non-existent - my advice to you is to get used to using both Google Translate and WhatsApp on your mobile phone with a data package that works in Spain as these came to my rescue on multiple occasions and are invaluable.
Francisca's services through both the buying and selling process of my property were exemplary and professional at all times, her fees fair, her communication swift and her level of integrity beyond doubt. Some of Francisca's greatest non-lawyer strengths are her ability to empathise with a non-Spaniard buying property for the fist time in Spain, communicate the system clearly, set the necessary appointments / provide clear directions and generally 'hold your hand' through the process and sooth your nerves when necessary.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Francisca to anyone requiring the legal services (not just buying/selling property) of a lawyer in Spain and will certainly approach her again should I need such services again. It is rare to find a professional of this level of integrity in any industry or country.
We need more clones of Francisca across Spain! :-). From my experience, her services and professionalism cannot be improved upon.Oct 02, 2020

Very relaxed and not uptight. All very good.Sep 18, 2020
- Wayne Leatherbarrow, Costa Blanca
Confident, articulate, concise & polite. I've used eleven 'abogados' to date, all pale behind Jose. One case I had lasted 12 years ! So I do believe that I know a little concerning the lugubrious trade today. The Best Rise to the Surface.
I'm happy, Thank you.Sep 01, 2020
- Steve Riley, Benidorm
Buying a house in Spain was a daunting prospect but we had found the place and just needed to go for it!
After a quick Google search for English speaking solicitors, I contacted Advocate Abroad, after speaking to someone for less than a minute I was told I would be contacted by their solicitor, Consuelo within the next couple of hours.
My phone rang within minutes, it was Consuelo and she explained all I needed to know about the legal requirements prior to making a purchase and after an offer is accepted. She explained the differences between a private purchase and a company purchase, and gave us enough information in that initial phone call to put our minds at ease and helped us understand the Spanish house buying processes.
Consuelo then went on to arrange our NIE numbers, make an appointment with the notary, dealt with the estate agents, acted as attorney with our bank, and completed most of the legal requirements within a three week period just before lockdown hit. Over the lockdown period Consuelo sorted out electric, water and taxes and explained everything clearly and precisely over email and WhatsApp. Once Spain relaxed it’s measures, Consuelo was quick to finalise everything, even met our Spanish friends to hand over keys and sent photos!
The service provided is incomparable with our British conveyancing lawyers, (we truly did get a clearly explained, personal service at an excellent price!) and although everything after our offer had to be dealt with remotely with us back in England, there was no doubt we were being looked after fully and competently.
I would not hesitate to recommend Advocate Abroad and I would certainly recommend you ask for the fantastic services from Consuelo!Aug 14, 2020
- Tony Johnson, Marbella
Francisco is a true professional; super efficient and completely fluent in English. He helped me with a difficult legal matter and took all the stress out the situation as well as providing a pragmatic path to resolution...precisely what you need from a lawyer/abogado.
The service I received from Francisco was first class. I cannot think of any areas that could have been improved.Aug 05, 2020
- P.R. van Tol
Francisca did a great job helping us with buying our new property. The price is absolute right. I can fully recommend her!Aug 05, 2020
- Robert Bolton, La Manga del Mar Menor
We couldn't have asked for anyone better than Consuelo in helping us buy our apartment in La Manga. She guided us through the process either by email or phone and made sure that we fully understood everything. This of course gave us complete peace of mind.
Consuelo is an extremely professional person but also very personable. We even had lock down to contend with but Consuelo always kept us updated. Excellent service!!Aug 04, 2020
- Karen Webster, El Campello
Consuelo went above and beyond expectations. We could not get to Spain to view the property we liked due to the COVID-19 travel ban so Consuelo viewed it on our behalf and sent videos.
She went through the whole buying process on our behalf. Communication throughout was excellent. Consuelo kept us informed of every step and sent copies of all documentation. Considering the amount of work she did under very difficult circumstances the fee was very reasonable.Aug 01, 2020

Miguel provided a faultless service throughout the purchase of our property in Oviedo.
Always responsive, providing excellent advice and guidance and prepared to go above and beyond to help us on numerous occasions. I could not recommend him highly enough.May 27, 2020
- Brian Berman, Oviedo
We were very have happy with the level of service provided by Miguel, he went above and beyond to make sure that everything was understood by us and clear.
Using him made us realise that buying aboard was not straight forward and with his help opened doors which we would have struggled with. He was always available to us day and night ( even at weekends) and would respond to any question with either the answer or information of how to get it. He kept us informed at each and ever stage of our purchase. He was a real gentleman and we were very proud and honoured to have met such a lovely man.
He is a great example of how a person in his position should operate with his clients and we can not thank him enough.Mar 11, 2020
- Chris Horne, Valencia
Francisca is a highly professional and friendly lawyer based just outside of Valencia city that helped my wife and I purchase our property.

- Simon Birch, Spain, Barcelona
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) !!!Jan 17, 2020
- Martin Clifton, Alicante
My transaction sometimes wasn’t the easiest but José went out of his way to deal with any difficulties and always explained things clearly and concisely. He was proactive and always kept me in touch with how matters were proceeding.Dec 05, 2019
- John Hipper, Zaragoza
Francisco was recommended to me by friends in Spain after they had a very positive experience with him. He was an excellent contact for me while I was in the process of buying a house in Spain.
It was an overwhelming experience buying from Canada, particularly because of the language barrier and the time difference, but Francisco did a fantastic job of explaining to me everything about the forms, taxes and the local processes.
He was helpful, friendly and informative. When I arrived in Spain to complete the purchase, I felt much more confident knowing that I had his advice and assistance, he even offered to help me fix a problem with my bank accounts when I didn't understand what was happening (language).
I would have no hesitation using his services again and highly recommend him to anyone in need of his assistance. I was 100% happy.Dec 03, 2019
- Stephen Brown, Palma de Mallorca
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.
Our experience of estate agents on the island is not great but thankfully Rosa has kept us right through out our property search and in obtaining our NIE numbers. We are very grateful for her help.Nov 13, 2019
- Sjors de Wildt, Barcelona
Oscar helped us through the process of buying our family home in Alella Barcelona. He advised and informed as well as reviewing the contracts and doing checks on liabilities, registrations etc.

Alvaro made one phone call on our behalf and sorted out a long standing issue with a rental agency in Fuengirola. Without his help we would have been lost.
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
- Richard Day, Barcelona

Jose's English is excellent and he explained everything to the letter. Absolutely brilliant and will definitely go back to him when we have found a house to buy.
Can't fault anything. In fact he showed us the car registry office and other offices that will be useful to help us settle in his beautiful country. A real gentleman.Sep 10, 2019
- Manh Do, Alicante
Jose has guided and helped our family throughout the whole process of the purchase including the application for the NIE, ordering of the survey, signing of the contract and transfer of the utilities under our checking account.
We highly recommend his legal services for any such real estate transaction.Sep 04, 2019
- Leigh Hossbach, Oviedo
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
- Joseph Lobo, Barcelona
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.Aug 01, 2019
- Gian Piero Staffa, Antigua
Rosa was extremely helpful in assisting me buying a house in Maiorca.
The transaction was not without issues due mainly to spanish bureaucracy and Rosa handled all of them very professionally.
Given language problems and distance from my residence I will never regret having chosen her as my Lawyer in Palma and I have already recommended here services to other prospective buyers.Jul 22, 2019

It is very difficult to find a good Spanish lawyer and this law firm, has set the standard very high.
I sent them an email and within an hour someone called me and got on my case. Álvaro, was a shark and he got the job done. No waiting, no bs, straight to the point.
As an American EXPAT it is very important not to be manipulated by the Spanish Court system. He showed me some amazing loopholes and now, things are going great!May 28, 2019

Always professional I would totally recommend his service.May 10, 2019

Francisca was extremely professional, great communication throughout the purchasing process.
Phoned or emailed me to keep me updated and worked to a good timescale for completion. Prepared well for the notary and simplified the answers on any questions or issues that occurred.
I would highly recommend Francisca for anyone from the U.K wishing to purchase property in Spain.
She takes away any stress or fear that can happen from entering the unknown legal practice in Spain. I would definitely use Francisca again for legal service, on any future issue or purchasing of property.
She provided good value for service and would be a future person to go to, for any expat in the Spanish community.Apr 30, 2019

I could not recommend Consuelo highly enough to choose as a lawyer. She went above and beyond what was required when working for me.
She is reliable, professional and kept me informed of the progress of my case and what she was doing at all times.
Consuelo has an ethical outlook and a strong sense of what is right. She was unfazed when others tried to block her efforts to help me and was always reassuring that we would get there.
Her spoken and written English is excellent so she can work with both English and Spanish (she did for me). Thank you Consuelo!Apr 16, 2019

We bought a house in Ibiza and Cristina showed immediately a high degree of professionalism and deep knowledge of the whole process - from the initial offer to the final completion of the purchase.
She also dealt on our behalf, with registering us with the utilities companies (Water, Electricity) and other things, for which we were really grateful.
Cristina is a lovely young lady, always ready to help and very polite and her written and spoken english is so very good that there were never any communication problems. Our queries were dealt with quickly and, when needed, she offered explanations, suggestions and alternatives.
All in all a very pleasant experience; we told her we wanted to retain her as our solicitor in Ibiza for any future needs and she readily accepted.Aug 21, 2017
