“We have used the services of McGrenra & Gonzalez Legal Consulting several times over the past few years. More recently, a property was sold and bought here in Spain. In both cases, in the difficult transactions, the service we received was excellent. Nothing ever seems to bother Elizabeth, Jose Ignacio and Susana. We would definitely recommend them for legal work here in Spain. “I have had the privilege of working with McGrenra & Gonzalez, Legal Consulting, since joining Moraira in 2006. I couldn`t be in better hands. Elizabeth and Jose are the most professional, polite and knowledgeable team I`ve met in a long time. I highly recommend them for all your legal needs. We are an independent law firm located on the coastal road Moraira – Calpe, Benissa coast. We opened our doors in January 2006 with a very important objective; clear and impartial legal advice for people moving to Spain. As our testimony shows, we are pleased to say that we have achieved our goal and continue to do so. English, Spanish, French and German are the languages spoken by the three main members of our team. Since 2006, we have been working with many nationalities to protect their legal interests and make life easier in Spain by offering the following services: MG Legal Consulting took care of our real estate purchase about five years ago and has since taken care of all our legal matters, including local and state taxes and advice on request.
Elizabeth and Jose are very professional and experienced in British and Spanish law. We feel comforted when we have their support during our winters in Spain when they are needed. McGrenra and Gonzalez handled the purchase of our vacation rental in Moraira in 2011 and our subsequent annual tax liability (Form 210). We are very satisfied with their service, which is always professional and efficient. We would not hesitate to recommend them. “We were referred to McGrenra Gonzalez Legal Consulting by the real estate agents through whom we purchased our property. This turned out to be one of the best recommendations we have ever received. All our questions about buying the property were answered in a professional and friendly manner, as well as setting up direct debits for the payment of our utilities and the management of all necessary taxes was carried out to allow us to live a stress-free life here in Spain during our visit.
“The McGrenra Gonzalez team arranged for the purchase of our home in January 2020. They covered all aspects and provided regular communication every step of the way. We felt completely protected and involved throughout the process, which was not only done in an extremely professional manner, but also explained in a very friendly and non-technical way, which was a great help. We have no hesitation in recommending McGrenra Gonzalez and would not consider any other company for further future advice. Relying on an English will may delay the payment of taxes due on the deceased`s estate within the authorized period of six months. This delay can often be due to the fact that the succession was not completed on time in the UK, which means that no action is taken in Spain. “Also just to say a very big thank you for helping us in this process and keeping it stress-free. I wish we had more lawyers like you in the U.K. You were very helpful, professional and a pleasure to deal with. I`m sure you don`t need the recommendations, but feel free to post them as a testimonial on your website.
“If you own a Spanish property but are not registered to pay Spanish income tax, you will have to pay a non-resident tax. This is paid annually via Form 210 to the Hacienda (the Spanish national tax authority) and must be paid by 31 December of each year. “We tapped M&G Legal to purchase our new home in Spain, which was a pleasure working with Elizabeth, Jose and Susana who were all extremely professional and friendly, helping with all aspects of the purchase and making hiccups as painless as possible along the way. We are now asking Susana to take care of our residence once the lockdown is lifted. The purchase price included a testamentary service which is wonderful We can`t recommend the team highly enough” We spoke to three different organisations in Moraira to manage our property purchase and chose MG Legal after speaking extensively to Elizabeth. The combination of Elizabeth as an English lawyer and her partner Jose as a Spanish arogado was convincing for us and worked well. The service they provided was excellent and they acted on our behalf. Not only have they proven their knowledge and experience of the process, but they are also well connected with regulators and local administrative authorities, which certainly helps move things forward. Jose was particularly helpful in resolving an issue identified in the investigation by coordinating with the surveyor and visiting our property during our stay in the UK to ensure the work was satisfactorily completed. They also made Spanish wills for us at the same time.
I highly recommend Mg Legal mainly because of their professionalism and efficiency. Late payment can result in fines and so it`s a good idea to leave this to a tax advisor who is also aware of the seemingly ever-changing changes in tax laws. MG LEGAL CONSULTING recognizes that it can be difficult to fully understand the tax implications of another country. Keeping abreast of possible discrepancies in relevant tax laws can also be a bit confusing, especially if you don`t have permanent residence. McGrenra & Gonzalez offers this service and can also arrange the application for the tourist license required by the City Council to allow the rental of your property.
