What legal procedure would you like us to help you with?

Our Law Firm offers you a complete support in the property conveyancing . If you wish to buy a property in Spain we assist our clients in every step of the purchase until completion, we do all the legal searchings and check all the relevant paperwork, legal situation of the property, charges, debts, utilities, draft contract, taxes, until completion at the Notary Office. The architect checks the urbanistic situation of the property and the Tax advisor informs and explains all the taxes involved in the purchase and of course the taxes to be paid after completion. We will make sure that the property is free of charges and legal.

We inform the client about the cost of buying and the client will exactly know the total cost involved in the purchase from the beginning. After completion we will send a final balance with all the taxes and expenses paid, and if there is any balance in your favour we will transfer it to you.

Also we can help you in the sale of your property, our tax advisor will advise you about the taxes to be paid for the sale and we will inform you about the cost of selling. Our solicitor will negotiate with the buyer’s solicitor all the sale conditions and will represent you in every step of the procedure until completion.

We provide a full support for tax issues to expat people, in order to avoid paying taxes twice, there are a lot cases in which we have to apply the double taxation agreement signed between Spain and your country of origin. This situation is known as International Taxation.

Whether you are a Non Fiscal Resident or a Fiscal Resident citizen, we will attend you with the tax implications in Spain, such as, Form 720, Non resident Tax, Personal Income Tax (Tax Return), Inheritance Tax, Rental Income, etc.

The N.I.E. number is the Identification Number of Foreigners People. Getting this N.I.E number will be necessary to make certain procedures as for example: buying a house, buying a car, opening a bank account, etc… This will be the identification number with the Spanish Tax Office for these procedures as well as for the tax payment as non-residents.

It is very important to specify that obtaining the N.I.E. does not involve obtaining the residency in Spain. The fact is that this is a different procedure to legally reside in Spain and pay your taxes here.

The Spanish Golden Visa is regulated by the Law of Entrepreneurs. Through this Law, the Spanish Government grants residency for non- EU citizens who purchase a property in Spain ( house, villas, or apartment) with a minimum investment of 500.000 €.

This programme is an interesting solution for investors from Non-EU countries ( such as, China, Russia, Arab Emirates, USA) whom to have the opportunity of getting the residency with special conditions, have to make an investment in properties in Spain- in such places as Málaga, Marbella, and the Costa del Sol- in which the real estate market is always in demand.

Renting out a property in Spain for short-term rentals (“viviendas de uso turístico”) is only allowed for leisure and work purposes.

In contrast, a long-term rental contract is meant for regular use and using the property as a home. While long-term rentals are regulated by Spanish national laws, the existing regional legislation ( different in each autonomic region ) might apply to short-term contracts.

If your property is located in Andalucia and it is going to be rented for a short term you have to get from the Junta de Andalucia the touristic purposes licence. In addition to the above, the property owner who rents a property in Spain has tax obligations, depending on wether he is fiscal resident or Non fiscal Resident and the tax amounts involved will be different.

You can find more information about this matter in our section Renting out property in Spain.

Legal advice for buying and renting out property in Marbella

Marbella, a renowned coastal city situated in the province of Málaga, presents excellent opportunities for property rental. Engaging the services of a reputable solicitor firm is essential to navigate the legal procedures involved in the rental business and avoid potential fines. Marbella’s allure lies in its luxurious lifestyle and exquisite Mediterranean beauty, making it a highly sought-after destination for holiday rentals. The city showcases an array of pristine beaches, including Puerto Banús and Playa de Nagüeles, coupled with a favourable climate, creating an ideal setting for retirement or vacationing. Moreover, Marbella’s property market offers a wide range of upscale options, attracting both national and international buyers. The city’s glamorous reputation is further enhanced by its exclusive resorts, high-end boutiques, and Michelin-starred restaurants.

Given the significant influx of tourists, both national and local authorities have implemented stricter regulations for holiday lettings. It is crucial to seek the assistance of experienced solicitors in Marbella, and Tejada Solicitors possess extensive expertise in managing rental properties throughout the Málaga region.

The Process of Working with Our Solicitors in Marbella

For matters concerning taxes, property conveyancing, or visas such as the Golden Visa, Non-Profit Visa, or Digital Nomad Visa, our foremost commitment is to provide our clients with thorough information about the procedure and its ramifications. Our aim is to attend to any concerns or questions you may raise, offering a personalized service that is tailored precisely to your individual circumstances and requirements. The process we undertake to assist you is as follows:

Initial Consultation

Prior to their travel to Spain, a significant number of clients reach out to us for guidance. We strongly recommend scheduling an online meeting before your trip, allowing you to familiarize yourself with the necessary procedures, required documentation, and crucial deadlines. In procedures such as the Golden Visa, it is particularly advantageous to plan in advance, as legal documentation from your country of residence, duly apostilled, will be essential.

For clients already present in Spain, we provide the option of an office meeting, a phone call, or an online meeting. With the impact of COVID-19, approximately 90% of our clients now prefer online meetings due to their convenience, the flexibility in scheduling, and the positive environmental impact achieved by reducing pollution and supporting the well-being of our planet.

Assessing Your Legal Needs

When we receive your request for a specific service or resolution of a problem, we diligently assess the available options that can be customized to align with your individual needs. We suggest an initial meeting, be it online or in person, where both parties can establish direct communication. During this preliminary encounter, our lawyer or advisor gathers all the essential information necessary to conduct an in-depth analysis of your case. We evaluate the costs involved prior to your engagement with our services and explore strategies for optimizing tax considerations. Our objective is to acquire a crystal-clear understanding of the case or procedure before moving forward.

Developing a Legal Strategy

Certain procedures, such as Property Conveyancing, Golden Visa applications, and Spanish Residency, demand a meticulously crafted strategy. Consider the Golden Visa, for instance, where strict adherence to legal deadlines is imperative to avoid visa denial resulting from non-compliance or untimely submissions.

Another crucial aspect involves determining the most advantageous timing within the fiscal year (January to December in Spain) for relocation, considering potential tax savings and deductions. At Tejada Solicitors, we take pride in offering a comprehensive 360º service. Our team comprises solicitors, immigration lawyers, tax advisors specializing in International Taxation, and architects. This interdisciplinary approach enables us to conduct a thorough examination of your case from various angles, assessing how decisions made within the realms of tax, legal, or immigration domains can impact you. While these areas are interconnected, it is essential to possess a comprehensive understanding of the distinct laws and deadlines governing each facet.

Keeping You Informed and Involved

Transparency serves as the cornerstone of our work ethic at Tejada Solicitors. We are dedicated to ensuring that our clients remain well-informed through various communication channels, such as email, phone calls, Zoom meetings, or WhatsApp messages. Expect regular updates on the progress of your procedure, coupled with detailed insights into any potential risks or challenges that may arise.

Why hire Tejada Solicitors in Marbella?

When dealing with the Spanish Law system, expats often face a number of difficulties, from language and cultural differences to bureaucratic hurdles. Depending on the field of Law, regulations may differ from region to region, but also from a city like Marbella to another one like Malaga. This becomes even more important in real estate, since your lawyers or solicitors will be in charge of:

  • Interpreting the legal terms of contracts and deeds
  • Translating documents into your own language
  • Ensuring that transactions comply with local legislation

At Tejada Solicitors Marbella you will be assigned a specialist who takes charge of your case and offers you personalised advice. Nonetheless, in practice we work in a team of English speaking professionals specialising in different areas, including lawyers to economists, tax consultants and architects. This can be especially interesting if you are dealing with real estate and local laws in Andalucia. By signing a power of attorney (poder notarial) you can commission one of our solicitors in Marbella to complete a specific procedure on your behalf, for example if you are abroad.
