This is a service designed to help keep you informed of your tax status as well as enabling you to access up-to-date information about Spain and Spanish law.

My mother has property in both Spain and Portugal. Can you handle all her needed paperwork for both locations in the event of her death, or incompetency,?. The intentions are to sell the Portuguese property and keep the Marbella property and live in that. She currently lives in that.
Does she put this in a trust? Does she add me to title of her property?
Do you take care of Trusts? Power of attorneys so I can complete all transactions in both countries?
She can be a stubborn old bird! She did things probably 40 years ago, thinks its all done. But did not have this Marbella property. She says, oh my attorney has it? Really? Who? is he is Portugal or Spain, as far as we know its Portugal. Is he alive? Laws updated?
Things are sent to us in scraps instead of a picture of everything! Not to make a darn thing easy? I say she should send us a key to her apartments. No, she thinks we can find the mgr. AT this time she is going thru macular degeneration as well. Can you help us and lead us in the right direction. My mother is an American citizen and has lived there for over 65 years. Will your company fit all our needs?

Hi Mark,

Definitively we could assist you in case of a future inheritance wherever the Estate is located. In your comments there are other points that need to be clarified in order to give you the best advice. We would need to check with you the exact documentation we could obtain from you/your mother and discuss the best option for your case: sale, trust or planning the inheritance trough a will. The concept of trust is quite different in Spain, so we would need to explain it to you more in detail. I invite you to contact us on to discuss the case more deeply.

With best regards,

I have seen a property I am interested in buying.
It is advertised as residential. ( and apartment with 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom )
But it is clearly being used as an office area, no kitchen and 2 toilets, no bathroom.
I would like to reform back into a residential apartment and install a kitchen space and two bathrooms.
How can I confirm that it would be approved for this use before I purchase it? The floor plan and structure seems to be tach for this to happen. The building is in Jerez and is an old traditional building. The downstairs is a cafe, I can see in the rest of the building is a airbnb and a yoga studio.
Many thanks
I have sent you an email for a call to discuss your services as well.

Hi, do you deal with non residents tax?

We have owned for a few years and last made tax payments for 2019 and due to an issue with a lawyer we know we need to pay 2020 and 2021.

Can you advise if you deal with this, if it’s possible to do from the UK and if so what are your fees?
Thank you
