I hope you had a great christmas too! As for moving, lawyers etc... I personally would recommend you come over and rent for a little while to get a feel for everything and everyone! Cos as you probably know, nothing is straight forward in Spain. I dont think they use surveyors in Spain as they do in the UK and the whole house buying process is totally different - not least the landgrab issue which has recently been a topic on here (see the post about "european day". sorry I cant link it here cos I'm on a laptop that is too complicated for me lol) - Please have a look at some of the posts about house buying etc on here - theres so much info that I couldnt possibly put it all on this one post!

That said, I'm not trying to put you off, if you have any other questions feel free to stick em on here. Welcome to the forum

We use Fransico Molina in Antequera, he is spanish but educated at Cambridge. His English is perfect. We also work with an Estate Agent who also uses him. Generally it is not normal to use a surveyor in Spain.

Thanks, don't panic wev'e been researching this for a long time but didn't want to proceed due to elderly and infirm parents here. Sadly that has changed. Keep you posted!
