25th May 2021

For many years Warwick had been trying to sell one of my 2 villas in Calonge. The market had been very flat and we both had been very patient, as i was not prepared to "sell at any price".
Towards the end of last year, the market picked up and we were fortunate enough to find a Belgian couple who particularly liked Villa Roma. From the moment they first inspected the property it took only some 6 days to agree the Heads of Terms. During this period Warwick was available on the phone at all times to ensure that i fully understood how the Spanish system differs from the UK, and it does considerably.
The agency fee is much greater than in the UK, but the justification is that a good estate agent will prepare the initial contract, so that it is not essential to employ a solicitor.
Furthemore, the taxation system is complicated, and Warwick had excellent knowledge in this respect, so i did not need to employ an accountant.
Finally Warwick set up the meeting with the Notary and ensured that i brought with me all the documents needed to prove i owned the property outright.
A nice touch was that after we had completed the legals, Warwick took myself and the purchasers to lunch, so that we got to know each other, and could sort out any outstanding matters, such as fixtures and fittings, without delay.
