Real Estate Services

Buy A Property Remotely

At Lexidy, we offer a 360-view service.

Whenever you come up with the idea to purchase a property in Spain, we will recommend websites where you can take a look at different properties all across Spain and do a complete takeover of the transaction. 
Well, first it would be with you signing a Power of Attorney in your place of residence or you can come to Spain to sign it.

The second you find a property that you like, you either visit it or the estate agent takes videos and pictures of the property for you, that is the exact moment where we will spare you the tedious task of dealing with an estate agent that would barely speak English or French since all of our Real Estate Law specialists are fully fluent in both languages besides Spanish of course; this is crucial for the entire negotiation process that will come down when drafting the Reserve Contract and Arras Contract.

Besides the negotiation process, part of our services is to perform the Due Diligence over the property that you intend to purchase, just to make sure that everything is in order from a legal perspective, for instance, the charges, encumbrances, liens and whatever other debt that the property might have, as in debts with the community of neighbours (spills) or with the town hall/city hall.

We are proud to say that we have several partnerships with architect firms all across Spain, not only for technical inspections of your future home but also for renovations, certificates of habitability, elaborating blueprints of your property and also to fully construct a home from scratch.

After all of these steps have been completed and the day of the final purchase deed arrives, our services do not stop there, we also take care of registering the property within the Land Registry, we settle the taxes for you, we notify the community of neighbours (in case there is one) that you are the new owner of the property and last but not least, we also help you to register in the town hall as the person living in said property.

Lease Agreements

A well-crafted lease agreement specifies the terms of your rental agreement, lowers liability, and helps protect your investment. As a landlord, you need a high-quality lease agreement that both you and your tenant trust. We have three types of contracts depending on the property asset: residential; commercial; and short-term.

Property Dispute

Property disputes are often an inevitable part of owning, developing or occupying real estate in Spain. Our team of experts is here to assist investors, developers, landlords, tenants, financiers and all other parties involved in commercial real estate disputes. All situations can be resolved with professionalism and dedication.

Consultancy Investment

We ensure that all the appropriate checks and investigations are properly conducted. By ensuring that the property is safe to buy, Lexidy saves its client time, money and stress. Spanish property clients need specialist advice from legal experts who know the system. That’s where we come in – invest in Spanish real estate with Lexidy.

ARRAS AGREEMENT

An arras is a document used when purchasing a property. It requires the buyer to deposit 10% of the sale price before the terms of the sale are agreed. It’s very common in Spain and a well-crafted Arras specifies the terms of your deal, reduces your risk and protects your investment against the successful completion of the purchase.

POWER OF ATTORNEY

If you need to have a legal representative in Spain that manages your manners on your behalf, while you are not present, Power of Attorney is the perfect option. A Power of Attorney is a legal document that grants an individual or a group of individuals the right to act on behalf of a person in areas where they need it.

Absolutely Professional and worth-it Experience!I can highly recommend working with Carlota Llopart and Lexidy! Carlota and the team have gone beyond my expectations when it comes to owning and actually even driving the steps for my mortgage, the purchase of my flat as well as taxes filed. I have had an extremely difficult seller, but I was able to fully trust the team to guide me through this first acquisition.I have already recommended Lexidy to friends who had similar positives experiences and will continue working with Carlota and the team. Side note, me being German: Great value for money too!

Most recent experience:We cannot emphasize how satisfied we were with Antonio (10/10 ⭐️), and everyone from Lexidy who helped us while purchasing a property at the beginning of the year. This law firm is one of a kind! It was the second time we worked with them (as the first time our purchase was unsuccessful), and they keep surprising us with their professionalism and attention to detail.It must be mentioned that everyone spoke English, and most of the communication was done online (especially good in case you want to have all the documentation backed up safely). Antonio also made sure to answer all of our questions even after finalizing the purchase – and we asked a lot –, so that we could understand each step along the way. We are returning customers of Lexidy as their expertise is outstanding in all areas. Thank you very much, Antonio and everyone who helped us!Previous review:We had the pleasure of working with Antonio while making an offer for a flat in Barcelona, and everything went surprisingly professionally and well. We were supported throughout the whole process in English (great plus!) and Antonio was always available, even when we had very short deadlines. Lexidy made sure to collect all the documentation that was needed from the seller, and did a really thorough job on negotiating the Arras contract and carrying out the Due Diligence. Even though we were unsuccessful in securing a mortgage in the end, we can only recommend Lexidy and Antonio for everyone who wants to avoid the administrative headaches that come with property purchase. We even received an unexpected discount in the end since the deal was not successful, and we will definitely be relying on the services provided by Lexidy should we need it in the future. Really satisfied with the service: 10/10!

I hired Alejandro to help me get my NIE. I needed the process to go fast, as my future workplace wanted me to start ASAP. Alejandro promised me that I would get it within 3-8 workdays, and he managed to do so. He made the process sooooo easy for me! I would recommend Alejandro any time.

We recently retained the services of Lexidy Law Boutique to file our non-resident tax returns. As US citizens who own property in Lloret de Mar, Spain we were unfamiliar with the complexities of the Spanish tax system. Fortunately, we were able to benefit from the considerable expertise of Jose Garcia, Head of the Tax Department at Lexidy. He explained the procedure in detail to us and was extremely diligence and thorough throughout the whole process. What could have been a challenging situation for us became a very smooth process because of the expertise and capabilities of Jose Garcia and his staff at Lexidy Law Boutique. I would highly recommend the services of Lexidy Law Boutique.

At the recommendation of a Portuguese friend of mine, I contracted the Lexidy Law Boutique in the period March - May 2021 for the purchase of real estate in Portugal. Due the pandemic, most of the communications and consultations happened online/remotely, but that did not have an adverse impact on their quality of services. After the first guidance and consultation on Portugal's immigration policies and real estate purchasing processes, the team handled efficiently the process of obtaining my NIF, the verification of legal and overall status of the property, the negotiation and drafting of the CPCV, the deed formalities and the registration of the transfer of ownership property with the municipal and tax authorities. Throughout the whole undertaking, the team was very helpful, passionate and thorough in answering all questions and provide clarifications and information as needed. They were very responsive and made sure they followed up the process in every step. I wish to thank particularly Bettino and Gabriel for their dedication, patience and valuable advice. Lexidy Law boutique is a trustworthy partner that will facilitate your immigration and real estate projects and I highly recommend them!!

Before being directed to Lexidy we have tried few lawyers but none was as reactive, professionnal as lexidy. Buying in spain is a stressful and lengthy process but having lexidy in our corner made us confident we will close everything smoothly. We have dealt with Antonio Valdes and Alejandro Cano both showed a very high level of professionalism and reactivity. The pricing is fair and they offer an all in solution for peace of mind. Can not recommend any better!

Lexidy guided us through the purchase of an apartment in Barcelona. It was quite complicated; we were in New York and because of the pandemic had to do everything remotely. This would have been impossible without the sound advice--in English!--and help of various lawyer at Lexidy, particularly Alejandro Cano. They even inspected the apartment because we couldn't see it in person and arranged for us to open a bank account. Since Lexidy is the only law firm i Barcelona we've worked with, I can;t compare them to others there but working with them was certainly easier than dealing with U.S. law firms. Highly recommended!

Muchas gracias a Alejandro Cano por el buen trato, personalizado y profesional, en la operación que requerimos de sus servicios. Fue una operación muy larga y complicada, fuera de toda normalidad y que en la mayoría de casos hubiera sido imposible cerrar de forma positiva.Por lo que muy contentos del resultado, pese a las adversidades.

I am a retired real estate lawyer in California. Another lawyer referred me to Monica Isern Lopez of Lexidy in Barcelona for an immigration problem. I found Monica to be prompt, thorough and highly professional. I will turn to her and Lexidy whenever I have a similar problem in that region. I highly recommend her law firm.

The best service you could get with a law firm. In my personal experience, Alejandro is very helpful and efficient, he could explain to you cristal clear terms with the process of an acquisition for a foreigner. I highly recommend them as your attorney on your behalf.是我经历过的最好的服务,作为法律供应商。亚历山大非常好,他很有效率,英语也很好。如果你作为外国人去西班牙投资,一个快速回应,英语很好,对购买过程熟悉的合作伙伴必不可少。非常推荐他们!当然,我最初也是朋友推荐过去的,服务超出想象的好。

Alejandro was personal, attentive, and responsive while assisting me in obtaining my NIE in Spain. Overall - the process took less than two working days - weeks shorter than I was quoted by other firms. Alejandro has also been helpful in introducing me to others from the Lexidy office who have assisted in answers related to immigration and taxes. I will recommend Lexidy to others and look forward to working more with them moving forward.

It was a pleasure to work with Alejandro and Antonio while living in the US! They helped us navigate the entire process of purchasing a house in Barcelona, and were extremely responsive and helpful with numerous questions! They are also very knowledgable and gave excellent advise with various issues. We could not have done this without their help!
