Fees & Services

Fees

We try to lower as much as possible our fees, but there is always the possibility of a purchase with important legal issues to be previously arranged, and this will probably increase them. Please discuss this with our office. We want our fees to be crystal clear, as we only want happy and satisfied clients.

  • If you are going to buy a property, our general fee is a 1% plus VAT on the price of the property you will buy, if you are going to buy cash.
  • In case you need a mortgage and our office has to obtain it for you and coordinate all the documentation with the Spanish Bank, our fee will be an additional 1% on the mortgage figure, plus VAT.
  • There is always a minimum amount we will invoice when the property you buy has a low price: this is 2.000 € plus VAT. The other way round, there is a maximum of 6.000 € plus VAT no matter how expensive the property is.
  • In case you would want to buy a plot and build your own house, and you want us to inspect and control the construction, fee will be also be agreed with the client.

Our fees are fixed fees, no matter the problems we can discover once we are working in your property ( not previous problems we already knew in advance). If it is possible, we will solve them: will probably mean time, but will not increase our fee. In case it is not legally possible or advisable to buy the property, we will invoice per hours.

There is also the possibility to hire our services on hourly basis: 120€ plus VAT per hour, in case you only want legal help for issues different than conveyancing.

The idea is that you look for the property by yourselves. Once you have found it, this is the moment to meet your lawyer: always before signing any contract and before delivering any diposit.

We can also offer you a buying service, a kind of personal shopper. We can look for properties according to your instructions, lowering significantly the time and trips you’ll need to find exactly the property of your dreams, and lowering the final price on you behalf.

Please feel free to get in touch to clarify any doubt you might have. We’ll always answer your mails within the frame of 24 hours.
