If you are buying an off-plan property in Spain, some Building Developers might recommend you the use of their own solicitor (usually cheaper) to handle the property conveyance. This can be troublesome as the solicitor is unlikely to be truly independent as the same firm may be representing the developer as well.
In other words, at the event of dispute, – although not even paid for by the developer, – the Solicitor will be protecting in fact the developer’s interests, not yours!
Consequently, if you are buying an off-plan property in Spain, always proceed with extreme caution. Whilst it is tempting to take advantage of the incentives on offer in relation to legal fees, it is always best to make your own enquiries into Law firms of your choice.
