It is an unfortunate fact of life that some people suffer from mental incapacity and are unable to make use of their property in Spain.

Anglo-Spanish Law can provide advice and assistance in getting an appropriately worded order from the Court of Protection enabling a property in Spain to be sold, plus get the property sold.

For advice and assistance in getting an appropriately worded order from the Court of Protection, plus get the property sold, the cost is very approximately £5,000.00 in fees for Anglo-Spanish Law plus disbursements.

Assuming that the client pays directly the Court of Protection the fees charged by the Court of Protection and the fees of the firm of solicitors actually getting the order, the disbursements that will have to be paid via Anglo-Spanish Law will include the fees of the Foreign & Commonwealth Office in London, the Spanish lawyer in Spain, an estate agent in Spain, possibly a professional valuer in Spain, the notary, (although usually payable by the purchaser of the property in Spain), the property registrar, (again, usually payable by the purchaser of the property in Spain), a Spanish energy performance certificate, (obligatory when selling a property in Spain), the main taxes, including state capital gains tax and the municipal capital gains tax, often known as the plusvalía.

It takes months to get an appropriately worded court order in place. How long a property takes to sell depends on many factors, but, on past experience, location and price are key. An overpriced product in a poor location won't sell. Overpriced properties in prime locations tend to generate interest. Even rock bottom priced properties in poor locations tend not to generate interest. As a general rule, with the exception of the capital, Madrid, Spain is depopulating in the interior.
