My husband and I wanted to buy a property which was within the parameters of a national park. After researching the process we came to know that we need a lawyer who can handle such a complex purchase process. Marta saved us from this hassle. Firstly, she speaks very well English. Secondly, she goes beyond the expectation became a friend who not only helps but advocates our rights which we even didn’t know about. We are now happy owners of our farm thanks to her.

Marta helped us to purchase an apartment in Valencia. She did an excellent job. Everything from the very beginning was clear and understandable, she was very thorough with the process and we were very lucky she had a time slot to take us in as her clients. The communication was very smooth. We had million question that she answered without hesitation, explained everything in detail, kept us updated on the matter. Our home purchase process was full of unexpected issues that Marta has dealt with in an exceptionally timely and professional manner. I would most definitely recommend Marta to anyone who's thinking of buying property. This is one of the easiest recommendations I have given. I'm 100% guaranteed she will fulfil or exceed your expectations!

We had a lovely and very good experience with Marta Romero buying our new home near Gandia. Buying a house in Spain turned out to be easy with Marta. It all went smooth and fast. We did an offer on Monday and on Thursday we were signing the first contract, opened our bank account and did everything what was officially needed to start the purchase process. Marta is knowledgeable and knows the way how to support you best, from NIE, technical reports, cadaster challenges, finance and of course all legal details. We would highly recommend working with Marta for a worry-free experience.

I was really happy with the service provided by Marta. She was very responsive when I had questions and ensured that the transaction was concluded in a timely and efficient way. Buying a property in Spain is a very different process to the UK and Marta's advice, all delivered with good humour, was invaluable.

Marta is a very experienced lawyer - diligent, efficient and thorough, and acts with great integrity and professionalism. She understands her clients' needs, speaks fluent English and communicates extremely well; key documents are provided in both Spanish & English. I highly recommend getting in touch with her as soon as you consider buying a property so that she can explain the process, give advice and guide you through the transaction.

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.

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.

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.

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.
