INTERVIEW WITH DIANA ZUURING
Multilingual lawyers are the key to stress free Spanish property investments
It doesn’t take a genius to appreciate what makes Spanish property so appealing to overseas buyers or a rocket scientist to see the potential for pitfalls when dealing with administration in a foreign language. The combination of the right agent and a competent Spanish lawyer who speaks your language can expedite the purchase, and in most cases, make it a completely stress-free experience.
Buying a property (in any country) is a big deal so you need to get it right. It’s essential that you appoint a legal representative to safeguard your interests and ensure that all legal and financial obligations are met in full and on time. This is why it makes sense to work with multilingual Spanish lawyers who know the procedures, rather than a lawyer in your home country.
Diana Zuuring, founder and director of Diana Zuuring Lawyers in Marbella, offers clients the reassurance of extensive legal experience gained in her native Germany and Spain, and the benefit of a hand-picked multilingual international team; Diana Zuuring speaks German, Dutch, English and Spanish. Her success lies in a tried and tested formula of professional, friendly and efficient service and regular updates. It speaks volumes that the majority of her cases are introduced via client recommendations and by working with a network of property professionals who are keen to endorse her services, knowing that their clients will be safe in her hands.
Diana explains that she covers all aspects of Spanish law from conveyancing to litigation working mainly with an international client base. ‘As a lawyer and an expat, my clients know that I understand Spanish property law and their concerns as overseas buyers’, she says. ‘It’s a great feeling to be able to help clients make such a life-changing transaction.”
