    I was wondering if anyone can help me. I live in the United States. My family is from Spain and my husband and I are looking for a property to purchase in the ‘Ametlla de Mar area. We will be visting the area in May to see some properties. I do have Spanish Citizenship and am hoping that it will make the purchase easier. I have been reading all the posts and am very concerned about purchasing a property.  Does anyone have any good referrals for a real estate attorney in that area? We have been in contact with a real estate agent online and she said that their firm has an attorney as well , which from what I have read, is not the best way to go about purchasing a property. I would be very appreciative for any referrals. I would also be open to any referrals for a real estate agent in that area as well. Thank you.

    You are right. It’s best not to use a lawyer recommended by the agent you buy from. Too much potential for conflict of interest.

    Try Ester Capafons or Nova from this list:

    Hi,

    I can recommend as well Jonathan Eshkeri and Josep Grau. If you google “lawyer Tarragona” they come up right away. It is indeed good to have a lawyer when purchasing a property especially in this area because there are some constructions which are not fully legal. Good luck!

    Another lawyer based out of Barcelona is Mark Carr with Spain Advisors, he is from Iowa so can help navigate between some of the cultural understandings as well.  It is a bit daunting to purchase while abroad but working with those who understand the process can alleviate much of that stress – and as mentioned in what you have read and above – it is important that they work for you, not the seller.  Best of luck!
