The Spanish legal system is very different from the English system and unfortunately, on some occasions purchasers take little or no legal advice and sometimes rely on hearsay and kindly given advice from friends. We want to ensure everything at your point of purchase is done properly and you receive the advice that you need. For this reason we strongly advise that you seek legal advice from professionals. We have established a strong working bond with the following local lawyers who can help every step of the way. Please also note that in Spain the Public Notary ("Notario") - in front of whom all land transfers in Spain have to be signed - is not there to give legal advice to either the Buyer or the Seller. His function is to witness the signature of the title deeds and to deal with certain administrative matters.
