When I bought my house I used a long-established firm of lawyers in Nerja - De Cotta McKenna y Santafe, whose office is in Calle Diputacion. They have both Spanish and British partners. I was very happy with their service. They charged 1% of the purchase price, and I was asked to deposit 10% of the purchase price with them to cover taxes, plus notary and legal fees (I think it may be a little more now as transfer tax has gone up since then). Upon completion there was a surplus of almost €900 in my favour, and it was refunded to me immediately.

Again many thanks. The advice about independent solicitors has been taken on board. We have encountered the same in England, very pushy agents trying to get a commission. We are going to the 'A Place in the Sun' exhibition in September just to find out more info. We have lived abroad before and know that information is paramount, but it seems the goalposts keep moving in Spain. Have started a check list first we have to sell our own house but we live in Cornwall so its not so hard down here. Then we are going to rent in or around Nerja.
