Flynn – I used a solicitor because at the time i didn’t live in spain and I wanted to give power of attorney to someone. I can speak spanish, but didn’t fancy upteen trips backwards and forwards to sign pieces of paper.
Now that I am living out here I probably wouldn’t bother with a solicitor next time. Already have a NIE, bank account, can speak spanish and understand contracts, know how to request copies of developers bank guarantees, etc. There’s not much left for the solicitor to do and I’m not paying 1% for nothing! I wouldn’t recommend that others didn’t use a solicitor though unless they were in a similar situation to myself.
Who are ME? Which area of spain do they work in? Which area of spain is drifter buying in?
