Spain here we come!

Spain is well known for its fantastic all year-round weather, tasty food, affordable living and relaxed lifestyle. It is no wonder that as well as being the number one holiday destination for British it is also the most popular location in the world for Brits to move to or buy a holiday home.  Dreaming of a sangria at sunrise (even in December) is easy to turn into a reality, especially when you have an experienced independent expert on your side.

Buying a Spanish Property

Being so popular, Spain has thousands of properties available – you may have already chosen one either online or through an agent. But before you say SÍ take a moment to make sure you have the right legal support working for you. Buying or moving to a new house is the most stressful event in most of our lives, so buying a property abroad may seem even more daunting, what with language barriers, different laws and worrying local stories (in Spain the Land Grab Laws, illegal construction and inheriting previous owners’ debts have been headline grabbers recently).

What you need is a liable person who speaks your language and understands the Spanish property laws. Somebody who can guide you through the buying process so that you can feel safe at purchasing your Spanish property. That’s what we offer here at Vivagestoria.

An independent Spanish expert

Buying a new home is a big decision, so don’t just rely on the seller’s agents to advise on the process (remember they are paid by the seller and represent them), so is unlikely to be unbiased!

So, before you sign on the dotted line, why not contact our Spanish property expert Mirjam who will guide you through the entire legal, fiscal and administrative process. Mirjam has over a decade of experience representing British and Dutch nationals buying homes in Spain and is fluent in English, Dutch and Spanish.

Mirjam and the team at Viva Gestoria have made our property purchase really straightforward and hassle free. Being based in England and without being able to speak a word of Spanish we were completely reliant on Mirjam representing us through the entire purchase process up to and including getting Spanish bank accounts arranged, transferring of all the utilities and arranging the notarisation. Her knowledge, experience and translation skills are first class!
