Work area of C&D Solicitors Andalusia
The lawyers of C&D Solicitors mainly have clients in the central part of Andalusia as our office is based in Torrox, Malaga (on the Costa del Sol). However, for property law matters we do work throughout the whole of Andalusia as all 8 provinces (Malaga, Granada, Almeria, Jaen, Cordoba, Seville, Cadiz & Huelva) respond to the same regional laws of the Junta de Andalucia. Because most work nowadays can be done online and by phone the distances within Andalusia normally are never an issue. In 99% of all cases we respond within 24 hours (on work days). Almost all our clients are from Northern Europe (UK, the Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Germany, etc.) and usually we only meet in our Torrox office twice. However, if you aren´t in the position to travel to Andalusia, these contact moments can also be arranged from your own country.
Of course we do prefer to meet our clients in person and in our experience for both sides it´s pleasant to see in real life who you are dealing with. The first meeting with the lawyer/solicitor normally -mostly for buying, selling or inheriting a house in Andalusia- is at the beginning of the project, where clients also sign a Power of Attorney at our Torrox notary, so we can legally represent them during the process. Both the first meeting and providing our clients with a price offer for the legal works are services free of charge and without any obligation for the client. Through the Power of Attorney we can offer services like applying for the fiscal NIE number, opening a Spanish bank account and signing official deeds at the notary (for example the title deeds at completion of a purchase). If desired, the keys of the new property can be handed over to the real estate agent, so they can be picked up at their office as soon as the buyers arrive in Andalusia.
The second time is for the final balance meeting with the lawyer when all after-sales works, like for example tax payments, changes in the Land Registry & Cadastre and transferring service contracts have been completed. At this moment our clients receive all official documentation, bills, proof of tax payments and the final balance of third party costs as for the Land Registry, notary, architects, etc. According to the specific situation we often recommend property owners to sign a last will at the notary, which can be done right after the final balance meeting. Then the project will be officially closed.
Specialist in property law with focus on Axarquia, Costa del Sol (Malaga) and Costa Tropical (Granada)
The lawyers of C&D Solicitors over the years have earned a lot of legal experience in property law issues within the different areas in Andalusia for both urban and rustic / rural properties. This also includes all related subjects as inheritances, Spanish wills, New Build Declarations, Cadastre issues, tax matters, rental registrations at the RTA, etc. As Andalusia is rather large, we here under point out the most popular areas amongst our international clients.
The town of Torrox is located 40 kilometres east from Malaga capital and 10 kilometres west from holiday destination Nerja. It is part of the ´comarca´ region called Axarquia in the east part of the Malaga province and therefore also of the famous Costa del Sol. The Axarquia has its border to the Granada province which coast is called the Costa Tropical. Because of the exceptional climate and good infrastructure the Axarquia is very popular amongst foreign investors buying holiday homes or even buy a house here to become a Spanish resident, mostly when they become pensioners.
The most popular towns on the Costa del Sol within the Axarquia are Rincon de la Victoria, Torre del Mar / Velez-Malaga, Algarrobo, Torrox and Nerja. Also the inland villages are very interesting for buyers for their space and lower prices. Especially the picturesque towns of Frigiliana (just 6 kilometres from Nerja) and Competa are very beloved, both for tourists as for property investors. Furthermore, the Axarquia has a popular are around the lake of La Viñuela with the villages La Viñuela, Alcaucin (& Puente de Don Manuel), Periana, Arenas, Sayalonga and Comares.
Costa del Sol
On the west side of the Costa del Sol the lawyers of C&D Solicitors also guide lots of foreign clients in property law cases in bigger coast towns as Malaga capital, Torremolinos, Benalmadena, Mijas, Fuengirola, Marbella and Estepona. Further inland lately we see upcoming popularity of more rural places like Alora, Antequera and Alhaurin del Grande. Please see this link for all comarca regions and their towns in the Malaga province.
On the Costa Tropical -which thanks its name to the ideal conditions of the cultivation of tropical fruits- of the Granada province the most popular towns to buy for foreigners are La Herradura, Almuñécar, Salobreña, Motril and Castell de Ferro. The Costa Tropical lately has become very popular amongst Scandinavian buyers, mostly Swedish. People that prefer the nature of the Sierra Nevada area often seeks for the villages in the hills of Las Alpujarras.
Costa de Almeria
Due to the immense amount of sun hours plus lower prices the Costa de Almeria in the Almeria province in the east of Andalusia is gaining popularity, especially in places like Adra, La Mamola and -because of a famous Dutch TV show- the town of Popolos.
