Litigation - a service provided by our Legal Department

Published 18/06/2009

Generally the purchase of a property in Spain is the culmination of a dream come true and an overall positive experience for the owner. However, from time to time a problem or discrepancy arises resulting in a difference of opinion between the seller and the purchaser and at this point one or both parties are forced into the situation of having to defend their legal rights...

We would like to remind you that our Legal Department specialises in preparing lawsuits and is at your disposal to represent you and deal with the judicial procedure involved regarding matters that could affect your property. Here are a few examples:

• Construction defects, damp in the property, below quality finish, reduced square metres etc.
• Breach of contract by a developer (new build) or private seller (re-sale) relating to failure to release the property, problems regarding payments, delays etc.
• Negating to sign the Title Deed at the Notary or failure to cancel a mortgage on the property.
• Voluntary receivership or bankruptcy of the developer.
• Boundary problems with neighbouring properties.

Clients wishing to take this type of action receive detailed information concerning the legal procedure and costs involved. Our team of specialists make an intensive study of the case and provide an informed opinion regarding possibilities and risks involved. Clients can expect regular communication in their own language during every phase of the case and will have their assigned, personal member of staff to answer queries and provide explanations.

If you are unfortunate enough to be experiencing a problem of this nature or you know someone else who is do not hesitate to contact our Legal Department and we will be pleased to provide advice and a no obligation quotation of the costs involved.
