Property and conveyancing law and practice and taxation in Majorca are very different from UK and many other jurisdictions. It is important to have good advice and sympathetic support. Ripoll & Mateu managed our transaction pro-actively and very effectively, reacted to our issues responsively and guided us through the process. They were also a pleasure to deal with.
Keith & Angela Hamill
Our company hired Juan for a property transaction, being acutely aware that the Spanish system can move very slowly unless you demonstrate a sense of urgency. Juan showed strong ownership of the process, as well as involving and checking on other service providers. The transaction was executed to a tight deadline and with no cost overruns. I strongly recommend him for any work related to property on the island.
I am an English barrister who bought a house in Mallorca. The property/conveyancing system here is very complex. I was unimpressed with my first lawyer and was about to drop the purchase when Juan was recommended to me. He took over completely. He has a vast knowledge of Mallorcan property law and brought some important issues to light before I concluded the deal. He has been a friend to me ever since.
‘We engaged RM to oversee a property acquisition in Mallorca; Juan and his colleagues acted with great efficiency in overseeing this process, including invaluable help steering us through the complexities of the local process plus providing very useful additional contacts in the banking and tax advisory areas. Overall we were very happy with the level of service we received in successfully completing this transaction”
