Fuengirola is a place of blue flag beaches, such as Carvajal and Torreblanca, interesting monuments such as Sohail Castle and an active cultural life that continue to attract new people from all over Europe and the United Kingdom. In this way, tourism and the real estate sector continue to be the main economic engines of Fuengirola, thanks to a pleasant climate and a wide range of leisure activities.
Many Fuengirola residents choose to rent their properties as a way to pay off their mortgage while investing in acquiring their own property in southern Spain.
Despite its extensive expat community and being a popular tourist destination, property prices in Fuengirola can be reasonable compared to other areas of the Costa del Sol.
Therefore, Tejada Solicitors Fuengirola provide legal and tax advice in English and German:
✓ Legal conveyancing for buying a new house
✓ Registering properties as short-term rentals
✓ Non-lucrative visa for British citizens
✓ Making a Spanish will
✓ Calculating tax rates on financial transactions
If you wish to buy a property in Spain, our property lawyers at Tejada Solicitors can help you from the beginning to the end of the property conveyancing process. From legal searchings, contracts and paperwork to taxes, our lawyers can handle every aspect. We offer urban architectural surveying of the property, as well as a tax breakdown for the entire process from start to finish. We also ensure that the property is legal and free of extra charges.
Clients are informed of the cost of buying and the entire costs that will be necessary to purchase a property from the beginning of the process. Once completion has been reached, a final bill relaying all costs will be sent to the client. All taxes and expenses will be paid, and any balance left over that is in favour of the client will be swiftly transferred.
If you are looking to sell your property, our Tejada Solicitors team can help you too. We can advise you about all of the taxes involved with selling your property, giving you a complete rundown of all of the costs involved in the selling process. Our solicitor will negotiate all sale conditions, providing support throughout the entire procedure.
At Tejada Solicitors, we want to ensure that our expatriate clients understand everything they need to know about taxation in Spain. We offer advice on the latest international taxation regulations, in order to avoid double taxation.
For foreigners who would like to carry out certain processes such as buying a house, creating a Spanish bank account, or registering a limited company in Spain, the NIE number is necessary for you. This allows you to be identified as a foreigner when carrying out these processes, as well as when paying non-resident taxes.
The NIE number is not the same as Spanish Residency; the former does not permit your permanent residence in Spain, nor paying your taxes as a resident here.
Non-EU citizens have the opportunity to receive Spanish residency through the investment of Spanish property – this is known as the Spanish Golden Visa. It is one of the most popular investment solutions for non-EU investors worldwide, promising great business prospects in tourist areas such as Marbella.
The Golden Visa offers many benefits as well as providing a quick and easy way to receive Spanish residency. Non-EU citizens must invest over 500,000 euros in Spanish real estate (villas, houses or apartments) to be eligible. This programme is an interesting solution for investors from Non-EU countries such as Arab Emirates, Canada, China, the USA, or Russia.
Spanish inheritance tax applies to both residents and non-residents in Spain. Unfortunately, there are many clients who request guidance on inheritance following the death of a loved one in Spain. That’s why we offer a complete guide on Spanish inheritance tax, to cover any queries or doubts you may have.
The Spanish inheritance tax (ISD in Spain) must be paid once inheritance from a loved one has been transferred – this can be money, property or any other asset. The rules on inheritance tax vary in each region of Spain, which is why it is important to receive the information that is relevant to your case.

Any property owner who uses their property as a rental has tax obligations. At Tejada Solicitors, we offer a guide on your tax requirements, as well as necessary steps you may need to take depending on your circumstances.
Tax amounts will vary on factors such as whether you are a fiscal or non-fiscal resident of Spain. You will also need to determine whether your property offers long-term or short-term rental contracts, which will have different requirements. For example, owners of properties for short-term rental in certain regions may be required to obtain a license before renting out for touristic purposes.

Its stunning coastline features beautiful beaches, such as Los Boliches and Torreblanca, blessed with pleasant temperatures year-round. The town offers a dynamic outdoor lifestyle and is an excellent choice for retirement or vacationing. Compared to other parts of Málaga and the Costa del Sol, Fuengirola and its surrounding areas often offer more affordable property prices.

Whether you require assistance with tax matters, property conveyancing, or visas such as the Golden Visa, Non-Profit Visa, or Digital Nomad Visa, we prioritize providing our clients with comprehensive information about the procedure and its implications. Our objective is to address any concerns or queries and offer a personalized service tailored to your specific situation or needs. Our process unfolds as follows:
Many clients prefer to reach out to us before their visit to Spain. We strongly recommend an online meeting prior to your trip to familiarize you with the necessary documentation, deadlines, and procedures. Certain processes, like the Golden Visa, require planning ahead as you will need legal documentation from your country of residence with an apostille.
For clients already in Spain, we offer the option of an office meeting, a call, or an online meeting. Due to the convenience, flexibility, and environmental benefits, most of our clients now prefer online meetings, especially given the ongoing impact of COVID-19.
Upon receiving your request for a particular service or problem resolution, we carefully examine the available options that can be tailored to your needs. We propose an initial online or in-person appointment, allowing both parties to establish contact. During this meeting, our lawyer or advisor collects all the necessary data to conduct an in-depth analysis of your case. We assess the associated costs before you engage our services and explore tax optimization strategies. Our aim is to have a clear understanding of the case or procedure before proceeding further.
Certain procedures, such as Property Conveyancing, Golden Visa applications, and Spanish Residency, require a well-defined strategy. For instance, to obtain the Golden Visa, we must strictly adhere to legal deadlines, as any non-compliance or late submissions can result in the denial of the visa.
Another vital consideration is determining the most advantageous time of the fiscal year (January to December in Spain) to relocate, taking into account potential tax savings or deductions. At Tejada Solicitors, we provide a comprehensive 360º service. Our team comprises solicitors, immigration lawyers, tax advisors specializing in International Taxation, and architects. This multidisciplinary approach allows us to thoroughly examine your case from various perspectives, assessing how decisions made in tax, legal, or immigration domains can impact you. Although many areas are interconnected, it is crucial to have a comprehensive understanding of the distinct laws and deadlines governing each aspect.
Transparency is the foundation of our work at Tejada Solicitors. We consistently strive to keep our clients informed through various means, such as email, phone calls, Zoom meetings, or WhatsApp messages. You will receive regular updates on the status of your procedure, as well as information about any potential risks or adversities. Depending on the nature of the procedure, a specialist in the relevant field will be assigned to your case. Additionally, we provide a monthly newsletter containing news and updates related to tax, legal, and immigration matters that may impact you.
Our ultimate objective is to secure the best possible outcome for our clients. Many of our clients hail from the UK, Canada, the US, and Europe and often feel uncertain about navigating a foreign country with a different language and bureaucracy. It is essential to note that efficiency should not be compromised for speed, particularly regarding legal and tax matters in Spain. At Tejada Solicitors, our philosophy revolves around specialization, information dissemination, and prioritization throughout our communication with clients. This approach ensures that we consistently deliver the best possible results.
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.
