Default Solicitor property

Hi

looking to buy an apartment around the Estepona region and hope to view when this is all over.

I have found a Spanish solicitor here in the uk who charges about £1500 plus vat plus Notary charges NEI charges (if I used them for this) and a few other possible charges I feel comfortable with this but not sure if the bill will be stupid due to being in the UK.

Never purchased a property abroad before and find having a Sellers estate agent solicitor and everyone else who could be involved all in the same place many many miles away a bit worrying any advice would be wonderful

You do not actually require a solicitor to purchase. Perhaps a bit risky but I chose not.

£1500 + VAT seems very expensive to me.

I would suggest you find a solicitor local to Estepona. He/ she will be familiar with the area and better able to advise you. Would you employ a solicitor in Shetland to purchase in Sheffield?

Whilst you do not have to use a solicitor I think (and I know many agree because we have covered this before) to purchase in a foreign country with no knowledge would be quite frankly very foolhardy.

Use a Local (ie Spain) professional qualified independent solicitor who can arrange your purchase and then sort our your tax, will etc etc.

Feel free to do the recommendation on the open forum because the OP cannot receive or send PM´s yet.
