When deciding on a suitable solicitor in Galicia to assist you with your property purchase, it is important to check that your Spanish Lawyer is:

  • English-speaking. Unless you are fluent in Spanish or Galician then it is imperative that you choose a fluently English-speaking Lawyer in Galicia to ensure that you fully understand the advice that your Galician lawyer is giving you and that they fully understand any questions that you ask.
  • Independent. This means that they are in no way linked to an estate agent or seller of the property you are purchasing. Many estate agents will try to recommend a suitable lawyer or their own ‘in-house’ lawyer but we recommend that you should find your own to ensure that they are acting in your best interests only and that there are no conflicts of interest between you as the buyer and the seller.
  • Experienced. You will need to ensure that they are experienced in property law, particularly in the area of Galicia and that they have experience of assisting English-speaking clients.
  • Registered and Insured. Your Lawyer in Galicia needs to be registered with their local bar association and hold valid professional indemnity insurance. They should be able to provide you with their certificates for this.
