Estate Agents Seminar

Marbella Direct attends Estate Agents Seminar in Marbella

Held on the 27th February at the prestigious Marbella Golf & Country Club, the Estate Agents Seminar was hosted by the Cremades & Calvo-Sotelo law firm.

This interesting gathering of real estate and legal professionals produced an opportunity to gain information, ask questions and exchange insights, as well as networking and keeping up to date with the latest developments in the property market and the legislation that governs it.

Coffee and breakfast awaited the attendees, followed by a summary of legal news from Alex Radford, Head of Real Estate & Private Clients at Cremades & Calvo-Sotelo. He outlined some of the main changes in property-related laws before introducing Mark Rickard of HIFX foreign exchange, who summarised the growing importance of companies such as his in facilitating smooth and speedy transfers while offering the kind of rates that can save homebuyers anywhere from several hundred to tens of thousands of euros.

Santiago Herreros de Tejada of the Sociedad de Tasación highlighted the range of services offered by his nationwide organisation of RICS-certified valuers in their desire to bring this profession up to the standards seen in Northern Europe. Wesley Timothy, Manager of Real Estate Trading at DUAL Asset Underwriting, addressed another of the many issues involved in modern real estate when he outlined ways of protecting homebuyers from potential losses derived from a wide range of sources that can include structural damage, planning changes and claims.

Other valuable information for the gathered estate agents came in the form of legal news offered by lawyers Isabel Perez Blanco and Silvia Reinoso, both of Cremades & Calvo-Sotelo, who outlined the implications of the Golden Visa and the improved means of legal recourse for homeowners. The presentation by Andres Gunson, Business Advisor at Banco Sabadell Solbank, concluded an informative morning as he discussed the return of mortgages for Europeans and non-Europeans before joining the others in an open forum of questions and answers.

Offering both lower legal costs and helpful informative forums of this kind, Cremades & Calvo-Sotelo and the other contributing firms are providing a welcome contribution to improved standards of know-how and professional service levels in real estate-related fields. We thank them and look forward to participating in many more such events.
