English lawyers in Tenerife. If you have anything legal you need attending to in Tenerife, it would be nice to find a firm of abogados, or lawyers, that, even if not an English one, still employed English people.

Well, there are some! Below, I'll list a selection of them, with contact details.

But first, though, let me detail all the various things that an abogado can help you with.

Buying Property

Now, on my "Living In Tenerife" page you've already got quite a bit of info about buying a house and, on that page, I strongly suggest appointing a solicitor.

The abogado can help you with both sale and purchase, plus transfering and renting. He will also be fully briefed on Spanish conveyancing law.

He can act on your behalf to claim back outstanding bills you have had to pay on a newly acquired property (as, don't forget, any such bills stay with the house - not with the seller).

He can help with planning permission and dealing with acquired properties that have not previously obtained the correct planning permission.

He can offer mortgage and tax advice.

Wills, Probate, Inheritance

An abogado can help you make a will and deal with probate and inheritances. Some of the abogados listed below are able to provide joint Tenerife/UK help.

Paying Tax

Help with basic income tax, plus more specialised taxation, such as property rental income tax, timeshare tax, property sales and purchase tax and company tax.

If you think dealing with the tax office in your own country is difficult, imagine what it's like in Tenerife! Better leave it to the experts.


Help with disputes between consumers and timeshare companies.

Setting Up A Business

Help with registering a company name, plus comprehensive legal advice on business and commercial law.

Going To Court

The abogado will represent you in collection of debts, claims of negligence and compensation claims.

He will deal with property searches and embargos on properties.

Personal Injury

Yes, it's the old compensation claim thing! An abogado can deal with claims for injury suffered in a road accident, at work or in a public place, plus injuries sustained while on holiday in Tenerife.

He can also act to recover costs from home, travel, or motor insurance.


Should you and your other half want to call it a day, the abogado can help with that, too.

Child Support

Following on from the previous heading, the abogado will deal with child maintainance, parental responsibility, custody issues, visiting rights and even child abduction!

As you can see, it's really only the same sort of service any other solicitor in a different country would provide
