Marta has overseen all of the important steps necessary for purchasing property in Valencia. She has many valuable contacts to help with banking, taxes and surveying amongst many other things! She manages to combine humour and an ability to lower stress levels with a great focus and professionalism. Highly highly recommended.
We have only words of praise. Having Marta by our side on our journey to buy our home in Valencia was helpful and comforting. She helped us to navigate many issues that, without her, would have cost us additional time and money.

Marta represented my interests competently, kindly and with good humour. She guided me through a complicated and at times very frustrating purchase process. Being used to the administrative cultures of northern Europe and Japan, many procedures and requirements were difficult to understand and fulfil, but Marta’s knowledge and experience ensured a happy outcome. Had it not been for her, I would probably have given up and missed out on a great opportunity. I could not have been in better hands and can strongly recommend Marta.

100% recommended. Marta has been extremely helpful in handling my residency application, clarifying what was required and making sure the documents provided were satisfactory and submitted correctly. Great advice, service, and attention to detail.

I thoroughly reccommend Marta if you require help finding your way through the maze that is Spanish bureaucracy. Her easy-going approach belies a sharp knowledge of the system and absolute determination to do the best for her clients. I'm an British man with a Japanese family. Although we had been living in Spain for a few years already, we'd been having an excruciatingly hard time trying to reverify our marriage and family register here, get through the Brexit process, and ensure we had the right to continue bringing up our (Japanese) son in Spain. The stress had been compounded with the coronavirus pandemic cutting us off from access to the governmental offices we needed to deal with. Marta has helped us in so many ways. Her knowledge of the legal system here and the problems UK passport holders with non-EU families could have has helped us to continue with our lives here. I can't thank her enough for her dogged approach in the face of a host of challenges. Marta's professionalism and clarity was an absolute breath of fresh air. We had dealt with several other English-speaking lawyers here in Valencia and been disappointed and frustrated by their lack of experience and reluctance to put in the effort required to deal with the mixture of English, Spanish and Japanese documents needed. Thank you so much Marta for enabling us to continue living our lives here in beautiful Valencia.

Marta is a star! She managed to ensure the significant debts sitting on a plot of land we were buying didn't go to us, and saved my aunt and uncle from buying an apartment that had been illegally converted from an office without the proper permissions. 10/10 she fights for you all the way!

Can only recommend Marta as all other customers. She is happy and kind. But at the same time very professional and will help you through the whole process of buying a property. And if she has to, then she can be tough - to help you. There may be several stakeholders in a property, but Marta will always be on your side. And it feels much safer with her experience during the process of buying a property. If you are going to buy a property in Spain, hire Marta and you will feel much more secure. You will not regret. Marta, thanks for everything !!!
The house purchase was done successfully. Marta is a professional and knows the law; great attention to detail. Will definitely work with again. Thank you

BRITISH – A NEW DEADLINE 31st of December 2020

IMMIGRATION AUTHORITIES determined on the 6th of July 2020 how to proceed for UK citizens and their families to get or keep their Spanish residence in this transitory time being still considered as “European citizens”.

From the 6th of July to 31st of December 2020 British citizens can change their residence in Spain into a new particular kind of residence permit.


British can obtain a new identification card -TIE- as non EU residents have in Spain, though with the EU requirements.

We can provide the needed advice and help to British that have been in Spain and register in the past.


With previous legal advice, checking, informing – even providing some of the required documentation(even padron for the first time), we can submit an online application on clients behalf. Keeping our office as contact for authorities would smooth the process for anyone that does not enjoy working with bureaucracy!


We can provide the registration and obtain on client’s behalf the certificate in order to apply for their residence permit – or for any other question that it´s needed for.


If you are leaving the country to live somewhere else, going back home or just moving to another country. We can contact the local council and provide an unregistration for you to appear as non resident anymore in that particular Council – Ayuntamiento.



If you are about to own a property in Spain, or live here as a resident, you are going to need an N.I.E. number. This is actually also the tax number, so this is the reason why also non resident need it. You might require further information or an estimate for our legal fees on this purpose, by clicking here to contact us.


If you are about to own a property in Spain and live or just be in Spain as a resident, after the first 3 months of your stay in Spain, as EU national, you are required to register your residence and obtain a registration certificate by the Central Register of Foreign Nationals (Registro Central de Extranjeros). If you want to require further information or an estimate for our legal fees on this purpose, please click here.

After a continuous period of 5 years Eu-citizens acquire the right of permanent residence in Spain, therefore they can apply for a permanent residence document, which confirms their right to live in this country and without any conditions. You might require further information or an estimate for our legal fees on this purpose, by clicking here.


If you are about to own a property in Spain, or live here as a resident, you are going to need an N.I.E. number. This is actually also the tax number, but you might want to live here so you need a permission to stay:


  • Non lucro visa and residency permit.
  • Golden visa and residency permit.
  • Business visa and residency permit.
  • Working visa and residency permit.

If you wish to require further information or an estimate for our legal fees on this purpose, please click here to contact us.


If you have assets in Spain you will need a will even though you may have a will in your own Country. This is important for the following reasons: To avoid heirs becoming involved in time consuming expensive litigation procedures in Spain and the expatriate country.To enable testators (donors) to leave their estate to whomever they choose, subject to their national legal requirements.

Marta offers her clients the following services:

  • A bilingual Last Will and Testament.
  • Assistance before a Notary Public.
  • Estate transfers to heirs.
  • Estate distribution to heirs.

This service is intended for those beneficiaries of Spanish properties or assets where the donor (owner of the property) dies either intestate – ie. no valid will was signed – or with the valid will (testament).

Accordingly, Marta offers the following services:

  • Obtaining the official Death Certificate copy.
  • Request of Will Certificates from the Spanish Central Registry of Wills.
  • Obtaining the Wills from the Notary Public where they were signed.
  • Statements from intestate heirs when no will is available.
