The Spanish property sector continues to evolve and mature, and De Cotta McKenna & Santafé (De Cotta Law) is on hand to be your local, independent legal adviser. For both commercial and private clients, De Cotta Law offers unparalleled, independent property expertise.

Offering up-to-date understanding of the law in Spain, our multi-lingual team is accustomed to effectively and swiftly dealing with all issues concerning property in Andalucia, as well as nationally including the Canary Islands where we maintain an office on Tenerife.

Services include complete conveyancing on property purchases, sales and transfers; distressed property sales & purchases, bank repossessions; licensing; planning compliance & disputes; legalisation of existing properties; in-depth property checks; services for professional & institutional investors; as well as mortgages and bank guarantees.

Whether you are buying from a bank or an agent or privately, you are under no obligation to use the vendor’s legal counsel. You are highly recommended to use us as your independent advisers.

Our expertise is finely-tuned to the needs of private and commercial clients, especially non-residents. Together with our administration team, we are able to take care of every detail.

For example, for customers buying in urban and rural areas we pay particular attention to verifying planning requirements & compliance and that no debts are held against the property so that title is fully secured.

For customers buying off-plan or properties under construction we negotiate staged payments to ensure that the purchaser is always protected by the appropriate guarantees.

We also act for clients wishing to claim against developers that have defaulted on agreed delivery of a property.

You can look to us too, for practical from advice on mortgages & tax matters to taking care of day-to-day issues such as the transfer mains services. After the purchase we also act as your fiscal representatives to ensure the correct property taxes are paid for non-resident individuals or companies.

Rentals, leases and all types of tenancy whether commercial or private are skilfully and knowledgeably executed by our English and Spanish lawyers offering you the best protection.
