Our lawyer has just sent the amounts over plus their fee so I wanted to know is this something we can do ourselves and is it hard or easy to do?

Paul,

I don’t know how easy it is but if you do get an informative reply could you please forward on?

It costs me €130 per quarter just in solicitors fees to pay taxes that are often a lot less than the tax!

Thanks 

Jim

I paid €98 for my solicitor to do mine. 

I've been advised that using a translator instead of a solicitor is cheaper although I've not used one yet

Thanks for the replies guys, our solicitor has charged us 120€ for the whole year so I don’t know if that’s cheap or not?

A good illustration why I never use a solicitor - any decent one would have fixed up all the direct debits as part of the purchasing of the property. If not, go into the Town Hall yourself and ask them to set the DDs up.

If you cannot handle Spanish paperwork use a gestoria but never ever a solicitor (who will not even look at the stuff just pass it on to a very junior staffer)
