My wife and I chose Rocio Perez when she was at The IPLC to act for us when we purchased our first property in Spain in 2009.

At that time the newspapers were running alot of stories about the scandal of houses built illegally due to corruption by local Spanish officials, resulting in many homes subsequently being demolished. The effect on their owners’ wealth, lifestyle and health can only be imagined.

The IPLC with their specialist lawyer Rocio Perez helped guide us through these dangers, often at the cost of a great workload to herself. Rocio was able to use her native Spanish to converse with local officials to make certain that correct certificates and documents were produced, deal with a neurotic local estate agent, and all the while patiently keep me and my wife informed at every stage of the process.

The purchase went smoothly and the house is a delight. We owe it to The IPLC for their expertise, and to Rocio in particular for her diligence, her knowledge, her patience, and above all her ability to explain what was happening in clear English.

Another house purchase in the same region of Southern Spain is planned for early in 2012. It can be stated clearly and without hesitation that I shall be instructing The IPLC and Rocio Perez to act on my behalf.
