We are hoping to move to Asturias later this year (if we can sell our house here, the market is very slow!), and was wondering if anyone could recommend lawyers etc or had any advice about buying/living there.

Hi, I’ve just registered on this forum and noticed your message, I’m in the same predicament, I’ve spoken to Clive a lot just lately he’s been very helpful, are you aware of any other services similar to Clives so I can compare costs and services, eg lawyers, architects, structural engineers etc.

No, sorry, I haven’t heard of anyone else, Clives name keeps popping up. We are going over soon and are staying with someone Englisgh who has brought over there in the last year (through NorteCasa/ Costa verde properties). We are hoping to get lots of advice from her..will let you know.
As I said, we have yet to sell our house here so aren’t really in a position to talk to Clive yet but will do.
Where are you planning to move to? Any estate agents you’d recommend?

I hear you’ve been mentioning my name to Ann (at Costa Verde!). We are over in Asturias from the 6th to 13th July..she thought you’d like to meet up and share experiences! Not sure how experienced we are though! We are looking at the areas around Grado (Pravia,Proaza etc), Siero and Pilona mainly. Thanks for the links, we have looked at Reinas and Norte Casa, another is allanglobe.com (good site but you can’t bookmark pages or search for houses by number, and its in Spanish).
If you want to meet up in Asturias, I’m not sure of the best way to give you our contact details as I think Mark might remove my email address!! I’m not a great forum user, I know theres a way to privately message but have no idea what to do!
Would be great to meet up with another English family, my husband speaks very good Spanish but I’m a beginner. so it would be nice to know someone else to speak to! Anyway, will try and get a message to you through Ann too…

Of course I won’t cut your email address – I’m not that much of a Nazi! I only get my panga out when companies try and promote themselves in this forum.
But I do recommend that you register. It’s very easy; you just click on the register icon up above and follow the instructions. 3 clicks and you’re in.
