In previous posts we talked about taxes when transferring a property in Spain, and we started a series of posts about how to buy a property in Spain, so today we’re going to talk about how to find the right conveyancing solicitor. Let’s start.
Now you have decided to buy a property in Spain, and first thing you have to do is to find a law firm, a conveyancing solicitor before even contacting the real state agent or the seller. It’s important to avoid contacting the law firm recommended by your state agent, because you need an unbiased lawyer in Spain, in order to avoid problems. Besides unbiased, your requirements when finding a conveyancing solicitor must meet: English speaker and specialized in property law. Being a Spain based conveyancing solicitor is really important too, in order to ensure he or she knows Spain’s property laws.
Conveyancing Solicitor and his contacts
A very important thing about buying a property in Spain – and elsewhere – is to have contacts, knowing how to move yourself with the state administrations. Also, knowing an association of architects it’s interesting to solve the small problems that can occur when buying a property.
