We are specialists in building surveys, the management of structural remedial works and building dispute litigation in Spain – and provide you with a full building defect and dispute service in your language..
In our team we have a bi-lingual and fully qualified (Spain and the UK) building surveyor and a bi-lingual lawyer (qualified in Ireland and Spain) who specialise in building dispute litigation. This means that we can deal with not just your construction problems in Spain but also any building disputes – all the way to a court action, if appropriate.
We can assess whether you have a genuine problem with your property, analyse the remedial works required and manage those works. We can also take action to enforce any existing legal obligations on the part of builders or insurance companies (such as those providing a 10 year Decenal guarantee).
