Buying a property in a foreign country (like Spain), although very exciting, also means that it can be tough at the beginning to settle in and find reliable companies for services. At Aqua Estates our philosophy is to guide our clients to finding their perfect property in Marbella, this usually entails more than finding you the property, as you will require other services along the way. We have a large selection of trusted partners that can offer you these services in-keeping with our honest & efficient approach towards our clients.
We do not charge you for any of these services, you would arrange quotes & payments for services directly with the referred partner, although if you wish we can oversee the process.We have long term experience with these partners and we are constantly monitoring their services to ensure that our clients get only the best in each field, here are some of the main services we can assist you with:
As emphasized in our buying guide & selling guide we strongly recommend using a lawyer to carry out your purchase or sale of your property in Marbella. We can suggest a few options for you from our trusted partners network.
Need a mortgage? Our trusted partners have a selection of the best mortgages around, so that you can concentrate on finding your ideal property in Spain, they will take into account your needs and requirements and find your ideal finance option.
When purchasing a property on the Costa del Sol you will require a Spanish bank account. It is the ideal way to transfer your funds for the purchase and your lawyer will setup all the direct debits to the account like the electricity bill, community fees, water bill, etc so that you do not need to worry about paying these bills at the end of each month. We can recommend the right bank for you and ensure they have services like online banking, customer support in your language and any other requirements you may have.
So you’ve found your ideal property in Spain but you want to add your own touch to it? We can recommend good reliable painters that can carry out simple touch up jobs to complete redecorations. We will make sure the quotes you receive are the best on the market.
Whether you need to add a light switch, add electricity points, update the sockets or a full electrical installation we have the right person for the job.
If your new property in Marbella has a private garden or lots of plant pots your going to need a gardener. We will find you a local gardener for simple garden maintenance or complete re-landscaping! If you have a private pool the gardener will usually take care of the day the day, or we can propose a pool specialist for more detailed pool maintenance work. Note: If you’ve bought a property with communal gardens and pool/s then these will be maintained by the community.
So you've found a great property deal in Spain but it needs some work? We have the right company for the job, from small jobs to full property refurbishment and extensions. They will take care of all the permits and legal requirements as well as offering you value for money and quality work.
So you’ve just arrived on the Costa del Sol and you don’t speak Spanish yet, don’t worry, our trusted satellite specialist will install your countries satellite network. (Subject to availability and country of origin, check with us and we can find out)
Once you have found your ideal property in Spain you will want to put your own stamp on it. We have a great selection of reliable and trusted Interior Decorators that can re-design your property interior and suggest various designs based on your requirements and budget. We can also recommend great furniture shops for all budgets and price ranges, whether you need a new sofa or a full revamp. We can also put you in touch with companies that can supply full furniture packs.
Whether you are buying in Spain with a currency other than EURO, or selling and bringing the funds back to your country with a different currency, this is a very important service that we highly recommend, when you are transferring small or large sums of money it is common for banks to charge large commissions and also offer not so favourable exchange rates. We can recommend great currency exchange companies that will beat the banks rates and in many cases save you thousands of Euros.
In most cases you will need to activate the telephone line in your new real estate in Marbella and contract a broadband internet connection (speed subject to location of property, usually the more remote the slower the speed). Most telephone operators only speak Spanish so it can become difficult, leave it to us and we will find you the best solution.
Not sure where to stay? Let us recommend a hotel for you, it makes sense to be in an area where you will be looking for your property. We’ll send you quite a few options and we can even arrange the booking for you if you wish.
If you are coming over to view properties with Aqua Estates we will collect you and return you to the airport as part of our service. However once you have found your property in Marbella you may require more airport transfers, our partners can offer this service at very competitive prices.
If you require and other services not shown here please contact us as in most cases we will be able to assist you with a recommendation.
