Testimonial from a new Client July 2017
I contacted Spanish Solicitors in La Zenia and spoke to a lady.
I had some complicated queries in law with regards to a property I owned in Spain. They asked me to send an email outlining all the problems.
Boy was she on the ball, answering within a few minutes.
I had the answer to everything I needed, without having to wait and worry. Easy to understand and very precise. I can not praise this company enough.
It is hard enough in Spain to understand all the legalities, even with an English speaking Solicitor, who often have accents difficult to grasp.
It was a breath of fresh air to talk to Amanda who is English, understands and has the law at her finger tips. This is the Solicitor I shall be going to in the future. Thank you, Amanda
Testimonial from a Grateful Resident at Cabo Roig June 2017
We would like to express our gratitude and appreciation to Amanda and the Legal Team at Spanish Solutions for their help and support in obtaining a court judgment to remove two large glass and aluminium structures, which had overshadowed our property for almost 5 years.
Throughout this period, we have been deprived of sunlight, views of the sea and swimming pool, privacy and the structures were incongruent, significantly affecting the aesthetic appearance of our urbanisation.
Having spent over three years writing letters to the Ayuntamiento, Alcalde, Councillors and the Community Administrator without success, we were advised by a neighbour to contact Spanish Solutions.
We first discussed the situation with Amanda, who listened to our problem and referred us to their Legal Team.
From our first meeting with their barrister, we were filled with optimism and pleased to learn that our case had many legal precedents, leaving us confident that we would be successful.
At the judicial hearing at the Orihuela Courts, we were very fortunate to be supported throughout by the barrister and the authorised legal interpreter in a very professional manner and our case was presented extremely well.
We did not find the trial an ordeal, in fact, we left the court feeling that we had received a fair hearing and only 3 days later, we were delighted to receive the judge’s verdict that we had won the case.
Despite our neighbours appealing against the judgment to the Provincial High Court, the Tribunal resolved the appeal in our favour, thanks once again to the skilful contestation by the Legal Team at Spanish Solutions.
Finally, our neighbours have demolished the two structures and they are currently in the process of restoring their property to its original condition.
In our mid-seventies, we can now enjoy our breakfast on the terrace in the morning sunshine and once again, we have our view of the sea and the swimming pool.
You are a great team! We would not hesitate to use Spanish Solutions again and would certainly recommend you to anyone who has a similar problem.
We wish you and all your Company Associates every success and thank you all once again for your help and support.
Wonderful Testimonial received today from Belgian clients:
” Nous sommes une famille belge composée de 5 personnes : Patrick, Véronique, Rebecca, Deborah et Tiffany.
Nous sommes partis en vacances au mois de juillet 2016, comme chaque année, sans avoir du tout l’intention d’acheter un bien en Espagne. Deux ou trois jours après notre arrivée, je me suis dit qu’il était temps de profiter de la vie surtout après une crise cardiaque. Nous avons décidé d’acheter un petit bien en attendant notre pension où nous verrions un peu plus grand. Je ne savais pas comment cela se passait en Espagne mais suite à des conseils d’amis habitant déjà la région, on voulait une saisie bancaire.
Nous avons, donc, fait la connaissance de “Miguelito”, de chez Comaskey. Un pur latino mais qui parle le flamand.Nous n’en revenions pas ! Le contact est tout de suite passé et nous étions très à l’aise avec lui. Nous avions l’impression de faire nos visites avec un ami.
L;appartment que nous avons acheté était le 2e de nos visites. Mais ce fût un vrai coup de coeur. De plus, celui-ci était situé tout près de nos amis et de Torrevieja où nous sommes la plupart du temps.
La machine était lancée, un vrai parcours du combattant qui a duré toutes nos vacances. Nous avons fait la connaissance de Felipe, directeur de Banco Popular à Cabo Roig, de Yessica et de notre petite Silvia de chez Spanish Solutions. Une procuration a été signée chez le notaire envers Spanish Solutions. Grâce à Silvia, nous avons été guidés tout au long du parcours.Et grâce à des conseils avisés, nous lui avons laissé notre dossier entre les mains étant donné que nous devions rentrer en Belgique pour notre travail et retrouver notre fille aînée qui n’avait pu venir avec nous cette année.
Nous avons correspondu afin d’amener au mieux tous les papiers, les réponses à nos questions, prendre contact avec les instances, … et enfin l’acte notarié à été signé le 1er septembre, jour de la rentrée scolaire en Belgique. Impossible de l’oublier, quel stress !
Merci à toutes et tous pour votre travail d’équipe ainsi que d’avoir participé à réaliser notre rêve ! Nous avons hâte de vous revoir en décembre lorsque nous viendrons chercher nos clefs.”
A très bientôt

I’m writing to you to provide feedback on my recent experiences in purchasing a property in Spain.
We found a property to purchase on a Thursday afternoon. I contacted Spanish Solutions that evening using a contact form on the web site – you were recommended to us by a friend. I visited you the next day, Friday afternoon, and by the time we left Spain on the Monday afternoon you had arranged everything so that I had a Spanish Bank account, an architect had visited the property, the relevant contract was in place and signed, my NIE application was sorted and the initial legal formalities were in place including a visit to the Notary with a translator from your office to complete the POA.
There were no language barriers – as a non-Spanish speaking person it all felt a little daunting but everything was explained to me in English, my questions were answered and I felt totally comfortable and confident with your approach to my purchase. We were buying a repossession and so there was further complications but again everything was explained up front, including additional costs this would incur.
The purchase was completed within a month and with amazing efficiency. I was able to ask questions, get the answers quickly, you made it easy for me to visit you when I needed to sign documents and you answered my questions patiently and clearly.
The only areas that didn’t as smoothly as I hoped were the connection of the gas which was initially overlooked even though I had mentioned this was required on 2 occasions. And, when we had issues in connecting our water supply your team were extremely helpful in communicating with the water company and then a plumber to resolve the issues, I did find it frustrating to be told that I would be contacted with an update at specific times but then I didn’t get the promised updates and I felt that I had to chase constantly for information. I now understand that at the time your team was working hard in the background to help me but at the time I didn’t know what was happening – an email just to let me know that it was being managed would have been great and would have stopped me from pestering you so much!
I am highly satisfied and happy with the service provided by you and the Spanish Solutions team, and I would have no hesitation at all in recommending you to other people. I will certainly use Spanish Solutions again. Thank you very much for all your help and support.

I would like to say how pleased and satisfied with the help and support I received from Amanda, Pedro and the team at Spanish Solutions. After my Father passed away I was dreading dealing with the legalities over his property in Spain but need not have worried as Spanish Solutions dealt with everything for us. They were very supportive and kept us informed all the way through the process as to where we were and what needed to be done next. I would certainly recommend their services to anyone as their attention to getting things done was exemplary.
A special thank you to Amanda who was always on hand to answer any questions I had.
Well done Spanish Solutions
James Keogh 24.4.16
My name is James Keogh from Co. Kildare Ireland, my wife and I purchased a property in Torreveija on April 26th 2016, we used Spanish Solution to help us with the process, Eva is the lady who looked after us, it was a fantastic experience from start to finish, she opened Bank accounts, sorted our NIE numbers, looked after the making of our will and all the rest that cause some much stress when buying a house, absolutely everything was hassle free, a big thank you to Eva and everybody at Spanish Solutions.
Wendy and Stuart Davies 25.2.16
We would recommend Spanish Solutions for any legalities you require. We have been in contact with Eva , Amanda & Pedro regarding a problem that we had to deal with in Spain. From day one they were very professional & friendly throughout the whole process and explained everything so that we understood all the procedures. Although we travelled to & from Spain we were kept in regular contact of what responses they had received.
We were delighted with the final outcome, so much so that we are in the process of selling & buying a new home in Lazenia, Spanish Solutions & Comaskeys Property Agents are helping us make this move stress free. The whole team have been amazing throughout.

“Bit of an unpleasant situation this morning but happy to say that Amanda Thomas has fully reassured me. Brilliant help once again from Spanish Solutions … and at the weekend to – so over and above the call of duty. Highly recommended.”
From the moment you make an enquiry to actually signing up with this company you know you are going to be dealt with professionally and treated as a person. The staff are extremely knowledgeable and deal with your matters in an efficient manner. My case was quite complicated but at all times I was informed of the stages we were at and how things were proceeding. The icing on the cake for me was so personal, to go and remove something made by my daughter for her grandad when she started school. A small thing she had tiled on the front of our house… This proved to be not a problem for Angie Real who went and did this herself and put the light back in my daughters eyes. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff I dealt with, and I recommend Amanda Thomas, Angie Real and Pedro Molina for any legal matters. First class all round!! Can’t thank you all enough!!
Jacques et Marie-josé.
Bien reçus et bien conseillés, nous avons pu réaliser rapidement l’achat d’une maison. Ne parlant pas la langue, Héléna Labarta nous a accompagné dans toutes les démarches administratives : acte de vente, ouverture de compte bancaire, demande de N.I.E., eau, électricité”, internet, tél, T.V., et ce, avec beaucoup de patience et de gentillesse,. Toujours disponible, elle continue à nous aider, ce qui pour nous est très appréciable. Nous n’oublions pas Adam de l”agence Comaskey, et Andy Fox notre premier contact; Nous recommandons vivement aux futurs acheteurs Spanish Solutions.
It was a pleasure meeting you on Thursday at Eva´s desk. Your Team does you proud and it is my pleasure to send you a tribute for your website, brochure etc.
“I have been dealing with the Comasky team for almost two years now – first, with the real estate office to buy and rent my properties; then the accounts department for my tax return and then the legal office for further property purchases. At every stage and on every occassion the Comaskey Team and Spanish Solutions have provided me with excellent service. Every member of the team is very professional and through in their work, always explaining every detail of each step to me. They are all also extremely warm, caring and helpful – as a single woman investing into a new country I have found Comaskey and Spanish Solutions provide me with the perfect Solution everytime!”
Thank You & your team for making my Spanish adventure such an effortless journey.
I would like to say how pleased I am to have used your company over the last few years with the many queries and problems I have had. I have found you all especially Pedro easy to talk to, patient and very professional in all matters. He has given me nothing but sound advice and information along the way. I would not hesitate to recommend your services to any body that asked.
Thankyou again for your quality service I would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year
We are delighted with this news, as we have been from all help and assistance provided by your company.
After finding Spanish Solutions on the web and having no previous experience of buying property in Spain the professional assistance provided by you and your team we have found to be second to none. This included the property transfer, utilities connection, Spanish wills and even assistance with taxing and transfer our car documentation to our current address.
Indeed we feel that we can pop into the office and a ‘Solution’ to all of our enquiries and problems will be found.
We would have no problem in recommending ‘Spanish Solutions’ to anyone, as indeed we have done to friends in the UK who hope to buy property in the area.
