What You Need To Know
Many people have left the UK to set up business/project and a new home in Spain, most are happy with their move and have an excellent new way of life. However, it is not something you go into lightly, a great deal of planning is required to make the move as smooth and successful as possible. You only get one go at it. We as Intermediaries help you or introduce you to people who will assist you with all aspects of the move, NIE Numbers, Schools, Accommodation, Pets, Doctor/Clinic, Registrations, Town Hall Licenses, Lawyers and much more after sales attention for weeks, Months and sometimes years. This is what we get paid for and why our minimum built in charges are dependant on the extent of the project 8,000 Euros upwards. we are on hand virtually every day to attend to you.
SELECT THE CORRECT/PROPERTY/ BUSINESS/PROJECT: - Find out as much as you possibly can about the business/property/project, why is it for sale?, how long had the last people been there?, how long has the business been established?, is it in a good location with all year trade?, Is the business trading well?, (Business we list are all trading and/or viable due to their location otherwise we do not entertain them). Who owns the business, does the seller have the right to sell, lease or pass on the property be it written or verbally. Has the Landlord been informed of the transaction, is the rent up to date, if not then, it could be that the previous people struggled. Is the property/business free of all debts. These are just a few of the most important thing to look out for, we have a much larger check list which we complete for our Clients, that is what we get paid for. We check all as best we can but very occasionally people lie to us. We cannot make provisions for this or be responsible for it but their lies do catch up with them. If you 'go it alone' or use an unscrupulous agent the you could be going in to a transaction blind and asking for trouble. Be sure that you have a Legal Representative, you would not buy a house or business in the UK without one so why do it in Spain. Use an Independent Legal Advisor who is not connected with either Agent or Seller. Do not part with any money until your Advisor says it is safe to and all the checks are carried out to his/her satisfaction.
PURCHASING THE BUSINESS: - Once you have decided on a property/business/project, do not be forced in to paying a deposit on the pretence that you may lose the business if you don't. Get the checks over with first, most of the business we list are already pre-checked and we know all about them. It is far better to lose the chance to buy a business than to lose all your hard earned money, so don't, under any circumstance, be rushed. It never fails to amaze me the amount of people who are ready to believe a person they have never met before and in doing so, put themselves and their families at risk. Don't get carried away in the heat of the moment or at a drinking session, keep a clear head, there will be plenty of time to celebrate after you have made the right decision. Even if you don't go through us, we will be pleased to check out any business for you or act as your 'Buyers Broker' if you choose this route working for you on your side. We have prevented people losing money in the past, some agents don't like us for it. Agents who offer to cut the price of a business leave no margin for looking after you after the sale. Don't be tempted to do the job on the cheap. Our Fees/Commission/Profit (Rental/Lease Transactions, Key Money) is built in to the cost to you and more than sufficient as mentioned above to offer our Clients an after sales service and ranges from 5 to 15% of the freehold value If you leave nothing to chance then, your purchase will be safe.

TRANSPORTING YOUR PERSONAL EFFECTS
It is still a fairly simple procedure to purchase a business in Spain, set up home and fulfil your dreams of a new way of life, many thousands have already done it and would not, under any circumstance, come back. If you are prepared to take notice of the advice we give and you work at your new business then, you will be rewarded in many ways. Changes are due to come in to effect in January 2021 as the UK leave the EU.
Some people do fail, but they will be the first to admit that, they went into the venture with their eyes closed or took wrong advice from unscrupulous people. There are agents out there that care nothing about you, your family or your future. We are here to help you, that is what we get paid for and are with you before, during and after any transaction and have been for over 35 years and Many Millions in £'s , Pesetas and Euros in Client Funds have safely passed through our Lloyds UK Company account.
Our experience tells us that you will have a mountain of questions and queries so please list them as you think of them and do not hesitate in calling or let us know if you would like to meet with us to discuss the venture. It is a big move and it is nice to sit down face to face.
Despite the years we have been in this business we never lose sight of the enormity of the move you are considering and look forward to assisting you in every way we can.

Planning a on Viewing a property in Spain ?
The following advice is intended for your protection and to ensure that you have "Peace of Mind" whilst you are viewing properties prior to, during or after a purchase.
People who purchase Property/Bars, Businesses etc in Spain through Agents who are resident in Spain have little or no protection whatsoever and virtually no comeback if things go wrong. Many Agents care only about their commission and not you or your family, despite the impression they may give.
Some Agents do not care what business/project you purchase and will tell you anything to get you to part with your hard earned money. When things get tough or go terribly wrong, some Agents are nowhere to be found. If you had to take action against an unscrupulous Agent in Spain then, you would find it a very difficult, long and expensive process. We have permanent offices in the UK and are a fully registered Limited Company. .
Some purchasers, with the best of intentions, try to "Go It alone" hoping to save a bit of money but invariably get caught and lose their investment. SOME TIME BACK IN BENIDORM MRS 'T' THOUGHT SHE COULD SAVE THE AGENTS COMMISSION BY GOING DIRECT TO THE SELLER. SHE PASSED OVER APPX €22,000 IN CASH, THE SELLERS DISAPPEARED WITH HER MONEY. SHE LOST IT ALL. WE HAVE HEARD OF OTHERS TOO You would not purchase a property in the UK without proper advice so why do it in Spain. Be very, very cautious if replying to small adds you see in the Local Free English language newspapers whilst you are in Spain. Ensure that anyone you are dealing with is either long established with satisfied clients he/she can introduce you to and is not just a privateer operating out of a car and a mobile phone and hiding behind a local Lawyer or pretending to be the Owner of the property.
We offer some protection to our Clients, even if they are not viewing through us. We can if you choose act as "Buyers Broker" for you the Client, a system successfully used and accepted throughout the U.S.A. for many years and one we recommend you consider using if you are traveling out to view with us and/or any other Agents. If you travel out with us and wind up purchasing through another Agent and it all goes wrong, we could be held responsible for bringing you out in the first place. So we need to be on hand as your Broker to advise you against a purchase if we feel it is unsafe. We will be working for you for our nominal fee as your "Buyers Broker" ensuring that you get the purchase you want. If other Agents have nothing to hide then, they will not mind us being your "Buyers Broker" and should be pleased that we are advising you. We will often save you more than our nominal fee. The Buyers broker scheme is separate and differs from our usual Intermediary position. Please ask for details.
The Usual Duties of A "Buyers Broker"
A "Buyers Broker" if you choose this route is retained by you to look after your interests and is normally a person who has particular experience in the Spanish Real Estate Market. A "Buyers Broker" in most cases will carry out many more tasks than an English Solicitor would. We let you know in writing our charges before we start work for you.
A "Buyers Broker" is your Agent, Advisor and Friend. ©
