“I would highly recommend Blasco Solicitors and Javier to anybody purchasing a Spanish property”
“We unexpectedly found ourselves buying a property in Lanzarote across Covid-19 lockdown when we could not travel.
Javier Soto Fuster of Blasco Solicitors handled the transaction for us and was able to arrange a Power of Attorney allowing a partner firm in Spain to act for us in matters which had to be carried out in Spain.
This took an incredible weight from our shoulders. It might have been a nightmare transaction but instead, it all went very smoothly.
Everything was well explained, well organised and managed efficiently. Javier was helpful and quick to reply. All the little detail was dealt with.
I would highly recommend Blasco Solicitors and Javier to anybody purchasing a Spanish property.”

“Their tenacity ultimately assisted me in a more than satisfactory outcome”
“I first dealt with Blasco Solicitors way back when they commenced trading. I needed a Lawyer based in Ireland but who was au fait with Spanish Law. Despite only being a new entrant to the Irish Legal scene I found Alvaro extremely knowledgeable and cognizant of the vagaries of the Spanish system.
Blasco Solicitors assisted me in one of the longest complex cases I have come across and at every turn they kept me up to date, offered me advise on the pros and cons of each decision I had to take and explained each and every document they were lodging in the matter.
I was absolutely confident in their practice which I have seen grow from strength to strength over the years. Their tenacity ultimately assisted me in a more than satisfactory outcome and I would highly recommend them for any legal issue you may have both here and in Spain.”

“Deserves to be the Lawyer of the Year”
“ Blasco Solicitors has provided excellent service to me in my roles as the signatory for the Marketing Authorisation Holder and EU legal representative. Alvaro has been very supportive in ensuring robust and timely legal advice, review and execution of legal documentation for regulatory submissions on a global basis. He has prioritised turnaround of legal documents which have supported clinical studies and marketing authorisation applications for pharmaceutical medicinal products. Alvaro’s knowledge of Chinese requirements has been of particular value.
Apart from Alvaro’s consistent and reliable deliverable of a professional quality service, it is always a pleasure to engage with him and his team. He is proactive and helpful and this makes for a very positive collaboration. I wish him the best with his business endeavours and have no doubt of his ongoing and increasing success given his hard work and ethos. ”

“We would highly recommend them”
“My son was interested in purchasing an apartment in Madrid but we were apprehensive about doing so as we did not understand the Spanish legal or taxation system. A business associate recommended Alvaro Blasco solicitors to us. From our initial meeting we found Alvaro to be helpful and informative. Alvaro handled the transaction from start to finish and traveled to Madrid to meet my son and the Notary to finalise the purchase. Without Blasco Solicitors we probably would not have purchased, it was a pleasure to do business with them and we would highly recommend them.”

“Just a quick thank you to Alvaro for making the drawing up of our Spanish wills a simple and easy process. We had put off for years this task as we were unsure of the legal requirements or the work involved. And were also under the impression that this had to be done in Spain – which made it an even more complicated task.We were delighted when we found Alvaro’s practise and he explained that it could be done in Ireland and through English!
Working with Alvaro he certainly simplified the process for us and made it a simple task to complete.We appreciated all the help and advice he gave us and the ease with which he dealt with the different parties ensuring that we all understood the legality of it and were happy in the knowledge that all the legal issues have been dealt with.

“A magnificent job for us”
“Buying a property in Spain can be a nightmare, trying to deal with Spanish solicitors adds to the confusion, we were assured that the solicitor we employed was working in our best interests, he may have been but he was also working with the seller. Our episode lasted for two years.
Then we asked Alvaro Blasco to get involved, he handled everything in a very professional manner, although based in Maynooth, Co. Kildare, he met us in Spain and within two hours all of the transactions relating to the purchase of our property was finished and the keys handed over, he attended the opening bank accounts and did save us approximately €4000 in bank charges.
He did a magnificent job for us and “all within two hours”, and the ground work was done before we went to Spain, his fees were most reasonable.
Alvaro comes highly recommended and is a most pleasant individual to do business with.”

“About 10 years ago my wife and her brother (both in England) jointly inherited a small property in Spain, through the death of an Irish relative, just at the start of the Spanish property price crash. The story didn’t start well, and went from bad to worse: a huge inheritance tax bill, lost deeds, lost post (and bills), legal action by the local residents, questionable practice at times by the Spanish tax office, no end of ongoing tax bills and a squatter. A tricky sale was eventually made at a huge loss, and then further bills emerged from the tax office, just under four years after the sale. The process involved a complex mix of Spanish, Irish and even English tax law. Alvaro’s assistance was utterly invaluable in helping dig us out of one mess after another, throughout this unfortunate, painful and seemingly never ending process. We are most grateful to him and his colleagues for his professional and patient help. Best wishes.”
