About Us

A Brief History

Welcome to our website. My name is Mark Cavell and together with my wife Anna we followed a dream to buy a house in Spain. We are an ordinary family with two grown up children and 2 grandchildren. We first began to think of the idea to live in Spain about 12 years ago. The full story of how we did it plus the pitfalls is featured later in this website. Suffice to say for now it takes a lot of patience to achieve.

If I was to offer general advice it would be

1. Do you're homework -  I probably spent 3 or 4 years reading books, joining local forum websites, visiting the area at different times of the year etc

2. Don't pay any form of a deposit over to an agent or seller unless you are 100% sure you want the house and the escritura has been fully checked by a solicitor.

3. Always, Always obtain proper independent legal advice from a billingual solicitor. Any solicitor recomended to you by someone involved in the selling process will probably not have you're best interests at heart
