There are a number of people who claim to be professionals in Spain who help foreigners. They are usually people who speak their language.
We have had clients come to us because they instructed people who were not qualified. They were not lawyers or gestors. We have had a number of clients who have asked us for advice on appeal against a rejected residencia application.
Before we submit a residency application we do our due diligence to see the best way to apply and that the application is correct.
For example recently we have had a client who applied for residency under the old rules and was rejected because they did meet all the requirements for residency. Their ‘advisor’ did not advise them correctly. They simply submitted the documents without ensuring that the the application met the criteria.
The client waited for more than 6 months and their residency application was rejected. Unfortunately this person can not appeal because the advisor missed one of the requirements under the old rules. So the appeal will fail. In this case we can’t retrospectively change the original criteria.
Fortunately for this client we found another route to apply for Residency due to their particular family circumstances which were overlooked by the previous ‘advisor’.
Of course in some cases it is possible to appeal.
Please ensure you take advice from a professional for example a lawyer or a gestor here in Spain.
In the applications we have made for residency we have a 100 percent success rate because we have 30 years of legal experience.
So if you need advice on moving to Spain get in touch with Just Law Solicitors we can help with this and purchasing a property, taxes, and autónomo or opening a company.
