Purchase of a Spanish Property

In Spain solicitors are called Abogados. Laura Garcia is a fully bona fide registered Spanish lawyer of the Spanish Law Bar Association. She is a English Solicitor regulated by the SRA, registration number 439776. This is essential information if you are considering purchasing a property in Spain.

Safeguard your Spanish Property

If you are considering buying a property in Spain Laura Garcia has plenty of advice. She is a competent English Solicitor who specialises in advising Britons buying property overseas, particularly where property development is concerned. Lgnlaw will help to alleviate any problems and will always seek to provide cost-effective solutions and guide you towards the right outcome.

Lgnlaw can assist you in the purchase or the sale of your property, by giving you independent advice and dealing directly with the Vendors and their agents (or the Buyer), reviewing the contract and its conditions, completing Land Registry searches, where applicable obtaining building certificate and or planning status from the Council, supervising relevant documents from the builder and bank guarantees, if buying a new-build, and appointing a notary for completion.

Lgnlaw will ensure that once you have completed the purchase, the tax is paid, the property is registered in your name at the Land Registry and that the utilities are transferred to your name. After completion of the purchase, we will forward to you the deeds and receipts of the payments made on your behalf (Notary, Registry’s fees, taxes, etc) for peace of mind.

There are also other important issues to take into consideration when buying a property, such as if the previous owner has unpaid utility bills or council tax bills that would charge the property, or if any of the utilities are disconnected it may not be so straight forward to reconnect, depending on each particular case. We also can give you advice and help you with the application of the NIE numbers and money transfers.
