Legal Services in Spain for Business and Property Owners
Dealing with a foreign legal system is always a challenge, especially if you aren’t very comfortable in the local language. It is especially important for business owners and people buying and selling real estate property to have legal support to protect their assets and avoid legal issues in the future. Trying to do everything on your own can be a costly decision down the road, which is why we recommend seeking out experienced legal services in Spain as early as possible.
Legal issues in setting up your company
There is a lot of red tape and paperwork to get through in order to properly set up a new business in this country. Granting power of attorney to your chosen legal services in Spain can help you wrap up all the preliminaries as quickly as possible, without the headaches of having to refile due to errors and with the peace of mind that you won’t have any legal issues with registering your company name, buying commercial property, hiring and paying employees, etc.
If you will be moving to Spain in order to run your business, you will also need to ensure your personal documentation is taken care of.
Legal services in Spain for buying and selling property
Real estate transactions are notoriously complicated, and not meeting your obligations as a buyer or seller can put you at risk of legal issues during the sale process or even after the sale has closed. A residential property sale can be tricky enough, but business owners have additional things to worry about, such as any restrictions that might prevent them from going about their normal business activity in a certain location. It’s important to have the guidance of professional legal services in Spain if you are planning on buying or selling real estate here, especially in the case of commercial real estate.
A special note about Fastline Legal Services in Spain
Since many of our clients are current or prospective property owners in Spain, we feel obligated to provide a warning to anyone who has bought a Spanish timeshare regarding the company Fastline Legal Services in Spain. This company has a years-long history of legal issues, cold calling timeshare owners, offering them legal services and requiring that the client pay hefty upfront fees. In many cases, the people they call have already been scammed in the process of buying their timeshare, and so they are vulnerable to being taken advantage of by this type of company, which promises to enter the timeshare owner into a class action lawsuit against the timeshare company. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee for the client in exchange for the upfront fee required by Fastline Legal Services in Spain, which can be as much as €1000. Please be aware that it is illegal in Spain for attorneys to cold call for the purpose of offering legal services, and that legitimate law firms will not charge you money upfront without some form of guarantee of getting you some portion of your money back.
