I have recently used Legal & Accounting Network for the sale of 1 property and purchase of another , both in the Benahavis area. I also used used them back in 2015 and throughout my dealings with Alfonso and the whole team at L & A Network I have always found them to be professional , knowledgeable, efficient and effective. I therefore would definitely recommend them to others.

I am a customer of Legal & Accounting Network for some years. I am very happy with the prompt and professional service this company is providing. When living in Spain you are used to that usually all legal issues need .. a long time ... before they are done. This is the contrary for Legal & Accounting Network. Many times I was very positively surprised that things were "already" done. I can highly recommend this company - its fun to work with them.

I had an excellent experience working with the legal and accounting network. Superb service, highly recommended!
Highly recommended! I had a pleasure to have the initial consultation with Alfonso. He was punctual, fluent in english, knowledgable and replied instantly to my emails. A year later, when it was time to submit my documents, I received a reminder from Mari. She provided clear information about the process and time frames. She was super polite, fluent in english and very responsive. I did not have to wait for longer than 24 hrs to receive an answer to many questions that I had. I was very impressed with the quality and efficiency of the service from start to end.

When it comes to getting things done in Spain, it's no secret that the process can be frustrating and time-consuming. However, I had the pleasure of working with a team of professionals who not only walked me through every step of the process but also went above and beyond to ensure my success. While they may not be the cheapest accountant in Costa del Sol, they are worth every penny, as they consistently delivered outstanding service and expertise. They helped me navigate the complexities of starting my autonomo in Spain, ensured that I was properly registered with the tax authority, handled my invoicing, and expertly managed both my business and personal taxes. They even went out of their way to receive my deliveries when my doorbell was out of order. Simply put, they're willing to go the extra mile for their clients. To top it all off, they're a joy to work with and their positive energy makes the whole experience enjoyable. I wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone seeking reliable, professional service.

The guys at Legal & Accounting make the legal & complex seem simple. They inspire confidence and trust and they take care of the legal, the documents and the emotions every step of the way. Alfonso is more than just a trusted legal mind, I'd class him as a trusted advisor whom I'd wholeheartedly recommend. Victoria also makes the navigation of Spanish law, easy as she guides you through it. As an expat, I could not find a better place to entrust my legal & financial matters to.

[FAQ] Frequently Asked Questions about Conveyancing in Spain

Depending on the agreement between the two parties, which is set out in the private contract, the conveyancing process can typically take up to 3 or 4 months, from the signing of the private contract to the signing of the public deed of sale at the Notary, although the terms are often extended if the buyer needs to apply for a mortgage.

Once the sale completion has taken place, our lawyers will proceed to register the property in your name, which can take approximately three months. We will deliver the final documentation of the house and the balance to the client with all expenses and taxes paid.

If it is not possible for you to be present during the process of buying or selling a property in Spain, your lawyer will be able to sign and complete the conveyancing process on your behalf by means of granting a Power of Attorney. You can have this document prepared while you are in Spain by making an appointment with the Notary.

Until recently it was necessary for a non-resident who owned a property in Spain to appoint a Fiscal Representative to deal with their tax affairs in Spain. This rule has now been relaxed for those foreigners whose only asset in Spain is a holiday home. However, it is advisable for both residents and non-residents with homes in Spain to count on the services of a reputable firm with expert real estate solicitors and professional tax advisors, to guide you throughout the entire conveyancing process and take care of filing your tax returns as a property owner in Spain.
