•When purchasing a property, able to pay the applicable property purchase taxes and fees (approx. 15%) over the purchasing price.

Note* We suggest you always use a specialized lawyer.

Even if it may seem “easy” to do it and there is the temptation to prepare everything by oneself, it is tricky, reason why so many Visa requests are denied.

So that you can understand, if it would be easy, nobody would call a lawyer to do the papers, no? Everything that implies working with the Authorities requires aaaa lots of preparation, knowledge and experience, as lots of time we risk way more than the fee that we avoid to pay to the lawyer; for instance, if you have this visa denied, in several Spanish Consulates around the world it will be seen as a “bad mark” and would complicate your future visa requests for all the Schengen area for up to 6 months!! So yes, we do suggest you contact a lawyer specialized in immigration issues if you really intend to do things correctly. Best of luck!

Legal Tip*

Always hire a LEGIT Professional: Be sure you hire a legit lawyer or gestor, and not just any self named specialist that cannot guarrantee you a perfect assistance, nor can he respond for his work or doings. A Lawyer /Gestor is tied to Deontological rules, he can be punished if doing wrong in his job and at same, he has a compulsory liability Insurance to respond and pay for his mistakes. This responsability is by law, imposed to all Lawyers and Gestores working in Spain; and if your chosen expert is not in one of those two Professions, you better stay away (or knowingly accept the risks).
