As a lawyer with over 30 years of experience, I have found that there are a large number of people who use my services because they purchased a property which did not meet their legal requirements.
In order, perhaps, to save costs, it is common to avoid hiring your own lawyer, but the costs incurred subsequently in resolving disputes are often much greater. What I find surprising is that, on a real estate transaction of several hundred thousand Euros, some people try to save a tiny percentage of the transaction not to instruct a lawyer, with the risk of losing everything, and as I said I have seen this happen on numerous occasions.
It is a shame to only use a lawyer to solve problems because lawyers are there to avoid problems. After 30 years of legal practice we are well versed in the Spanish legal system and we can spot fraudulent practices. The complexities of legal contracts hold no secrets from us.
It is true that signing in front of a notary protects from problems which may arise but not from all. The lawyer you have hired will prepare all the necessary documents for your transaction to go through in the best possible conditions. We are the guarantee of your peace of mind. You of course have a huge choice of lawyers, I specialise in Corporate Law, Real Estate Transactions, and many other topics.
At Just Law Solicitors, we will be happy to advise and represent you.
