In Fuengirola, Tejada Solicitors provide legal and tax advice in English and German, whether for registering properties as short-term rentals, buying a new house, calculating tax rates on financial transactions or making a Spanish will.

Despite its extensive expat community and being a cherished tourism destination, property prices in Fuengirola can still be reasonable compared to other areas of Costa del Sol. Blue-flagged beaches, like Carvajal and Torreblanca, interesting monuments like the Sohail Castle and an active cultural life continue to attract new people from all over Europe and the UK. In this way, tourism and real estate remain the main economic drivers of Fuengirola, thanks to a pleasant climate and varied leisure offer.
How our Fuengirola solicitors work
Upon the first contact, you will be assigned an English speaking tax consultant or lawyer, responsible for studying your case in detail and giving the first recommendations. Usually this first conversation takes place over the phone, although it is also possible to hold an online meeting to save time. Once the next steps are agreed, your solicitor will invite you to a first physical meeting to prepare the necessary paperwork. During that first meeting, the solicitor will usually ask you to provide relevant documents and further personal details to complete that specific procedure. In the following sessions, which can be carried out online or physically, your assigned solicitors in Fuengirola will continue to follow up and to inform you about the progress made. Direct communication and active cooperation between the solicitor and the client are essential to guarantee a successful outcome.
Especially when buying property in Fuengirola, our lawyers will have to check many important documents, as for example deeds, valid building licences, previous outstanding debts and the terms of the contract you will sign.
Signing a power of attorney
One of the easiest ways to complete legal formalities in Spain is to make a power of attorney (poder notarial) on behalf of your lawyer or solicitor. This document legally enables the solicitor to sign documents and act in your name in specific cases, such as accepting inheritances or signing contracts. For example, if your regular country of residence isn’t Spain, allowing your solicitors in Fuengirola to complete these procedures while you are away is an interesting choice for speeding up the process and save time.
