"I have sought advice from Raymundo on several occasions with Spanish-related legal work. His extensive Spanish legal knowledge (especially relating to property), excellent technical legal skills, good value, punctual response to questions, fluent English and ability to explain Spanish law in a clear and concise way to non-Spaniards are just some of the reasons why I always seek advice from him when I have a Spanish legal matter. Raymundo also writes well-written, insightful articles in English on a whole range of topical Spanish legal issues. If you require reliable, cost-effective Spanish legal advice, I would recommend you get in touch with Raymundo."
"In 2009 Raymond Nesbitt handled a property conveyance for me. He was professional, knowledgeable, helpful and available at all times and in all aspects of the conveyance. At one point a question mark over an outstanding action by the community of owners against the property developer arose. Raymond's advice in respect of the issue blended both legal and practical advice and was valuable in making a risk assessment on the purchase."
"Having had very poor advice during our purchase and finding ourselves in real difficulty Raymond Nesbitt was recommended to us. We were immediately impressed with his understanding of our legal position and his excellent command of English which meant that he was able to explain to us clearly what his recommendations were. He also translated documents and deeds for us giving us a clear understanding of what we were signing. Raymond helped us make some tough decisions in the confident knowledge that we could trust his legal knowledge and advise and that he was acting in our best interests."
"As a Notary in England I often work closely with foreign lawyers. Raymundo and his colleagues have provided expert and prompt assistance in respect of Spanish Property matters whenever I have contacted them. My clients have been very pleased."
"I have found your service to be very efficiently operated, quick and professional. I will certainly retain your details should I or any of my fellow colleagues have need for your services in the future."
"Thank you for your prompt reply and help with Seasonal Holiday Lettings. All matters have been very efficiently dealt with. Many thanks"
" This was my first time using Raymundo to prepare the various tax documents that need filing. In the past I used a large law firm. They were fine but every time I contacted them I was referred to yet another lawyer at yet another office. With Raymundo it was a one on one. I appreciated his professionalism and I received immediate telephone or email responses. He now has all my information and will keep me informed when things need to be filed and paid."
"I discovered Larrain Nesbitt Lawyers through reading a number of Raymundo's excellent articles on a range of tax topics in Spain. I had been struggling to find good English-speaking professional services in Spain so was especially pleased to find such a friendly, clear and efficient service from LNL. I was provided with clear guidance and a spreadsheet regarding the data I needed to gather for my tax return and LNL did the rest, bringing my tax bill down 38% in the process. But, most valuable for me, I had many questions that were all answered very well; I couldn't have asked for more."
"First I would like to thank you for your quick and excellent legal advice. I have been following your contributing articles on Spanish Property Insight, I always found them easy to follow (not all lawyers make legal issues simple to understand ) and very informative, When came the time that I needed a legal advice, I thought of you and send you my request. To my surprise the answer came back almost by return and was very clear and to the point. I did followed up with some more question and the same happened. I am glad that I have contacted you and I am grateful for your advice. "
"Raymundo lavora in maniera impeccabile. La sua assistenza legale è sempre molto rapida e centrata sull’obiettivo. Pienamente soddisfatto del servizio. Grazie Larrain Nesbitt Abogados "
"We are both very grateful for your sustained effort in finalising the house sale. Your timeless effort and amazing resourcefulness was inspiring. We wish your continued success. "
"I own three properties in Spain through two entities. I recently obtained my Residencia status and in the process realized that I would be well served by looking into the inheritance situation in Spain. After a web search I found Raymundo’s articles and began communicating with him --a wonderful experience! We arranged a telephone conference and in only 30 minutes I had the background information I needed and with my most immediate questions answered. I decided to have Raymundo draw up a will to be registered with the appropriate authorities in Madrid. After sending the necessary information I had a draft almost immediately for 1/10th the cost I had been quoted by another attorney. When I learned that, contrary to other’s experience, the Embassy in Washington DC would not notarize the will, Raymundo told me that he would arrange for it to happen the next time I was in Spain – at no additional charge. Now I have accomplished that and have met this very efficient, knowledgeable, and pleasant man. I cannot recommend him more highly. "

"Having found a perfect long-term rental flat in Barcelona, I was presented with a rental contract by the owners that seemed to me to be quite non-standard. I speak Spanish fluently and have lived in Spain for many years and feel reasonably proficient in navigating here, but I was really set back after reading this contract. Searching the internet, I was happy to find a wealth of real estate related articles authored by Raymond and knew that he was just the right person to help guide me through the process of deciphering this contract. I contacted Raymond via email and received his initial response within fifteen minutes! Using email, I explained the basic terms of the rental and sent along the contract. He quickly advised me of his (very fair) fees for his services and I made payment to his account. Upon receiving the payment, Raymond immediately reviewed the contract and answered my queries in detail. He provided clear guidance, in excellent English, and I was able to plainly explain to my potential landlords where the contract deviated from standard practices. Raymond's help was invaluable and I would not hesitate to use his services again or to recommend him heartily to others. I should also point out that even though Raymond is located in the south of Spain, I am in Barcelona and he handled all of my concerns relating to this particular market perfectly. Thank you again, Raymond! "
"I just wanted to say a quick thank-you for your service. The speed that you were able to produce a rental contract for us was exceptional.

"I recently employed Nesbitt-Larrain Abogados for the conveyancing of my new (old) Spanish property in Granada. Raymundo was really helpful throughout the process and generous with advice and signposting to a range of excellent, easy to understand articles to support my understanding. I found these articles really helpful throughout the process and they enabled me to get a better understanding of what’s required from me as a property owner in Spain. Raymundo was also efficient and supportive throughout and in addition, responded quickly to emails and calls. I have no reservations about the additional bonus of him being bi-lingual and having applied knowledge of both UK and Spanish legal and fiscal systems and I would not hesitate to highly recommend him and the services he provides."
"Thank you so much for completing this, we really appreciate the thorough way you do business and this makes us feel at ease. We would certainly recommend you to potential customers."
"I found Lorrain Nesbitt Abogados on-line via a web search and found there very informative short essays. I was looking to rent in Madrid, so engaged them to help me review the contract before signing. Reymundo personally dealt with me, he was super fast and very knowledgeable in answering my questions and reviewed the contract the same day, thus helping me secure my rental property with minimal fuss. I will certainly use their services again as I am hoping to purchase in the coming year. Thank you Reymundo."
"You can read all you like on the Internet, but I was left with more questions and a heap of indefinite and possibly outdated answers. We needed clarity on some issues regarding a lease agreement and we needed the information to be current. Raymundo Larrain Nesbitt was able to field these questions with precision and speed, thanks to which we were able to make necessary decisions with confidence."
"As a former digital nomad of 5 years, who moved 6 times before attaining residency in Spain, I was overjoyed to finally sign a long term lease with a landlord who assured me she had no intention of moving back into her house, that I could stay as many years as I desired. When I was suddenly informed that my landlord intended to sell her house 7 months into my long term lease, I Googled my rental rights and came across Raymond Larrain Nesbitt’s well-written articles on Spanish renters rights and common illegal rental clauses. As an SEO, I not only greatly appreciated his use of content to attract clientele, in a world of bungling Spanish lawyers Raymond’s service was reassuringly prompt, thorough and clear. A massive amount of stress and anxiety has been lifted knowing my rights, negotiating position, and that, with Lauren Nesbitt Abogados on my side, I have the right to remain without rental price hikes for at least 3 years."
"I found the tax obligations on our holiday rental confusing to say the least so contacted Larrain Nesbitt. Raymond was helpful, with clear advice, very responsive, patient with my questions and certainly delivered on their tax saving promise."
"We worked with Raymundo to sell out apartment in Alhaurin Golf. I can highly recommend Raymundo who is one of the most proactive lawyers I have ever come across. He kept us informed throughout the entire process, worked through challenges and was at all times very professional.

We will continue to use Raymundo for our taxes, wills and strongly recommend for all legal matters."

I will definitely be using his accounting and taxation services for holiday lettings and would not hesitate to recommend him."

The contract they produced for us was professionally executed and the service was speedy and reliable. We had a tight time deadline and they didn't let us down.

We wish we had found him before!"

"Are you an English speaker who struggles through some of the legal aspects of life in Spain? Save yourself worry, bother, and anxiety by engaging the services of Raymundo Nesbitt and his associates. We have used his offices twice, both with excellent results. In our first encounter he reviewed an apartment lease for us, and gave us confidence to sign and pay 4500 € in deposits. Our most recent need for assistance involved the sale of our car as we were leaving the country. We had not achieved resident status, but Raymundo's interaction with the dealer and alternative identity documents allowed the transaction to go forward. We can highly and unreservedly recommend Raymundo Nesbitt and his team to sort out your legal situation, whatever it is. Valerie Ishmael and Gerald McDearmon Fort Lauderdale, Florida USA, formerly of San Sebastian, Espana"
"If anyone is looking for a solicitor in Spain, I would like to highly recommend Raymundo Larrain Nesbitt. My elderly mother recently sold her property in Malaga and unfortunately her tenants were not very cooperative people. However with Raymundo’s hard work, professionalism and knowledge of the law in Spain the sale of the property was dealt with the minimum of fuss and Raymundo kept us informed every step of the way. His fees were very reasonable. What could have been a terrible situation for my mother turned out to be an excellent outcome for her and this was only possible thanks to Raymundo. I do not normally write reviews but I felt I had to on this occasion. Thanks Raymundo and all the best for the future. Regards Tony Hunt."
"I am an Owner in Marbella. I made a huge mistake and signed a very bad contract with a real estate company which I thought it is trustworthy and a friend! I found out later that they were cheating me from day one.I have contacted Mr. Raymundo and he has supported me excellently on this matter. Without his excellent advises and support I would be completely lost with this issues, specially because I don’t even live in Spain and am not familiar with the law and am not here to follow up and will cost me a lot to travel to Spain for this issue. My advice to every owner is if you want to sign a contract with anyone, regarding your prop-erty, please contact Mr. Raymundo and let him check the contract for you. It will save a lot of hassle, headache, sleepless nights and money and it is worth every penny of it specially if you are living abroad. Having a hassle like this, can cost you easily thousands of Euros and a lot of headache” S, Ehsan (Dubai, United Arab Emirates). "
