Well I've just got back to the UK after a brief 3 day visit to Spain. Bought a house sorted kids school. We move early July. Soooo much to do!

Andyroo, the chances are that your agent and his recommended lawyer are fine. But as others have pointed out, there have been many, many buyers in Spain who have experienced problems that they could never have foreseen, because they didn't use an independent lawyer.

The whole process of house purchase is different here, and irregularities in the deeds often get glossed over by people anxious make a sale. It is not uncommon for an agent to bribe the abogado to turn a blind eye.

It would really make sense to get an independent lawyer to check all the deeds and contracts for you. It could save a lot of pain in the future.
