    Morning Mth,

    Have a look at this page: http://www.spanishpropertyinsight.com/spanish_property_solutions_legal.htm

    Roma Bosch of DiG Advocats is based in Barcelona and can help you – it’s an easy drive to Tortosa. However if you really do want a lawyer based more locally then I can thoroughly recommend a lawyer called Esther Capafons. She is based in Cambrils, not far from Tortosa. I have been very impressed by her.

    Her contact details are:

    Sra. Esther Capafons i Guillemat
    Capafons & Associats
    Address: Paseo La Salle 27, Bajos43850 Cambrils, Tarragona,
    Tel: +34 977 368 073
    Email: capafonsyasoci@telefonica.net

    Regards

    Mark

    Careful with the lady in Marbella. It may well mean nothing, but she is close enough to the estate agents to speak on how they should protect themselves at the 5 star seminars.

    Marbella will probably be too far anyway. When you say “white villages of Cadiz” are you looking round the north or south of the province?

    Hi Monicals,

    If you don’t want to get ripped off when buying inland then you should start by avoiding the foreigners selling property and try to deal with Spanish estate agencies – through a translator if necessary. If you are going to deal with a foreign estate agent then as a minimum confirm that they speak fluent Spanish and have lived in the area for a decade. Many foreigners – especially Brits – who have just moved to rural Spain are now in the property business for lack of anything else to do. For many reasons they are a danger to their clients.

    The only reason I can’t recommend you an English-speaking lawyer in the Cadiz province is that I don’t know of one. You might wish to contact the professional legal associations (colegios) in the region and ask if they can put you in touch with local English-speaking lawyers who specialise in real estate law. It’s worth a try but I’m not sure how successful it would be – most collegios don’t give out this sort of information.

    We bought a tiny almond farm in the Burga Mountains in 2001. Builders connected to the estate agency were hired to do the restoration. Footings were already in place from a ruined part of the building. We were assured that we did not need planning for such work.
    When we went to try to register the property in the nearby town however, we were told by the adjuntament that this was indeed not the case. We would like to get all our papers in order for the property including one paper which has the adjuntaments official stamp which states that the footprint of the farm buildings already in place was a certain area, but which for some reason is not included in the escritura. We would also like to include my name as well as my husbands on the deeds. At present it only bares my husband’s name.
    There is photographic evidence of the property and footings before any work was done.
