Re: Conveyancing fees - house sale MenorcaOur Spanish lawyer

Customer Question

Re: Conveyancing fees - house sale Menorca Our Spanish lawyer is claiming 2.5% of the sale price of our villa plus a further 5000 euros for carrying out a Power of Attorney for my husband on behalf of his 4 children in order for them to inherit. The total amount she is claiming is 11,000euros. The contract itself was done by the Agent as the solicitor failed to correspond with them, and they carried out the work themselves. The solicitor also failed to reproduce the Power of Attorney mentioned above which she carried out a few months ago. My husband was obliged to seek another Spanish lawyer in UK in order for copies to be produced. Does this very high sum seem justified in Spain?

Attorney3044 :

Prices are free in Spain for attorneys

Attorney3044 :

My advice its to ask for several budgets

Attorney3044 :

speaking english attorneys ussually charges more money

Attorney3044 :

I can no say if its expensive or cheap because i do not know the sale price

Attorney3044 :

But 5.000 euros and 2.5 per cent its a price of a regular real state agency

Attorney3044 :

so its does not look to be expensive

Attorney3044 :

but we have to check what is the work he is going to do

Attorney3044 :

Is he going to sell?

Attorney3044 :

Perdone, pero no he entendido su contestacion. Estamos hablando de que el abogado esta cubriendo e. 2.5% del valor de la casa no la agencia . Estamos en negociacion para vender la casa por el valor de 370000 euros, y el abogado nos ha cobrado un precio arriba-citado para cumplir la negociacion.

Total 11,192.5 euros, lo cual me parece muy excesivo dado que no hecho mucho! (ya explicado)


Que quiere decir Vd que los abogados son "free" - es decir libero de cobrar lo que quieren?



Expert:  José M. replied 2 years ago.

Disculpe mi mal inglés

Quiero decir que los precios de los abogados son libres, cada uno ponemos precio a nuestro tiempo

Si él sólo va a tramitar y no vender el inmueble es excesivamente alto ese 2.5 por ciento

Pero desconozco la dificulatad dela sunto para saber si realmente merece la pena pagar esto

Pidan varios presupuestos si pueden hacerlo ahora

Si nos se han obligado con éste compañero pidan precio a otros

Gracias XXXXX XXXXX contestacion

Esta senora es el abogado de mi marido durante muchos anos. Ella ya ha cumplido su tarea, ya que esperamos dentro de pocos dias el cliente nuestro va firmar el contrato.Por eso no envio ya su presupuesto. El cliente que va comprar la casta Ya pago dos anticipos.


La agencia de inmuebles esta cubriendo el 5% y el abogado otro 2.5% mas. Todo lo que hizo la senora fue la tramitacion (es decir en ingles) "conveyancing" - pero el documento para firmar lo hizo la agencia de inmuebles porque el abogado perdio mucho tiempo y al fin de cabo fue mas facil hacerlo con la agencia.



Expert:  José M. replied 2 years ago.

Si ya está hecho no podemos hacer casi nada

Podemos negociar con él que nos parece caro y en el peor de los casos escribir una queja al decano del colegio de la provincia

Pero albergue pocas esperanzas así

mejor negociar a la baja con él
