Hola everyone,

Apologies if these questions have been asked (many times!) before, but I'd just like some advice re when to apply for an NIE and a recommendation for a reliable English-speaking lawyer. We are coming over in September (Bojo permitting!) and will be focusing our property search on La Alfoquia. There's a good chance we will make an offer on a property, so I would like to ask:

- should I get an NIE number beforehand or does this usually happen as part of the house-buying process itself?
- can anyone recommend a good lawyer?

Any advice appreciated,

Pete

Hi

We used mundiabogados on bouganvilla roundabout at Puerto Ray. Maria and esther speak excellent English and are very helpful.  They sorted the NIE during our property purchase. 

Regards

Lindsey

Pete, hope all goes well for you.  This is a lovely area to live.  We run The Heather's Bar.  Ally & Julie run the Heather's Restaurant. Hopefully you will get to pop in when you come over.   We used Voss Homes - Andy & Anna - Estate Agents. We found them to be very knowledgeable and good and honest in their dealings with property in this area.  We have used Angela Morales  Solicitor in Mojacar Playa. Angela and her staff all speak English and are very nice to deal with.   We would highly recommend them.  Finally, good luck with your plans.    Mary

Mary, thank you for taking the time to post that and the recommendations are appreciated. Hopefully, things have calmed down by September and our trip takes place as planned. I'm sure we'll find our way to you place for a drink,
Pete

Hi Pete I’m following your post as we are in the same situation, and also planned a visit in September to look at properties.

Well, good luck, Tony. Let's hope both our trips go ahead as scheduled. We go on the 13th Sept, so I'm hoping things settle down before then.

Thank you Pete.   If you get here just make yourself known to Tom and I in the bar.       Mary

We're just out for the one week, too. We're actually staying in Mojacar Playa, but will be making several trips to La Alfoquia as that's where we're keen to buy.
