Hello and thank you for your question. I will be very pleased to assist you. I'm a practising lawyer in England with over 10 years experience.

Is this for a property in Spain or the UK please?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

The property is in Spain and there is a debt for community fees

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Still waiting for a reply, how muchlonger.
Expert:  Josh-2010 replied 2 years ago.
Sorry for the delay in reverting to you owing to the time of day. AS far as I can tell it appear to be a little like a freezing order that the Spanish government can apply to property to freeze it before the can levy a claim on it for tax that is claimed to be owed however this is a question for a Spanish lawyer as I have no expertise in Spanish law. I will ask that this is transferred to the Spanish section where hopefully a spanish lawyer will be able to assist. All the best

Hi there

José M spanish atorney

Embargo is a warrant, is to seize the propiety legally.
Embargo is anote in the propiety register to avoid to sell the propiety to somebody alse without pay it
Probably you have some tax unpaid or something alse and the City hall or spanish tax office is telling you that they are putting and embargo preventivo on it
The best you have to do is to get information from the sender of the letter about where this embargo comes from
Even an small debt could make an embargo on your propiety
Please let me know if you need more help

Thank you

I have not recieved the answer to my reply to your earlier answer
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
My question was.
The debt is for community fees on my apartment.
I am trying to negotiate a payment plan with them to stop them applying for the embargo.
If they do apply to the court how long will it take and if they get it can they sell my property.
Expert:  José M. replied 2 years ago.
It could be take some years to sell it out at court for small fees
The best will be to follow this negotiation
They could go ahead an ask to sell it out to the judge
Contact them and try to get an agrement
Thank you
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I will continue to negotiate with them.

But if they do go ahead and apply for the embargo how long will it take to get a lawyer to make the application and the court approval.

I know the Spanish courts are usually slow. Can you give me an idea of the time it will take.

Expert:  José M. replied 2 years ago.
Well, its a fast procedure but you could make it slow
Before selling it the court will ask you first If you have another money or goods to pay
If you say nothing they could sell it out
But I think it could be no shortest than a couple of years
But the expenses could be very big for you. So you better dont let them go ahead, Try to pay another way you could
It not a matter of time, its a problem with money
If the debt now is 100 could be 3.000 after all
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Thank you.

I am hoping they will accept monthly payments they wrote to me and said if they did not hear from in 10 days they would go for the embargo.

I have written to them offering monthly payments.

They cannot get possession of the property can they, I owe about 5000 euro.

If they do not accept my offer of payment could a Spanish lawyer hold them off for me.

Expert:  José M. replied 2 years ago.
If you make monthly payment I am sure they are not going to go ahead because they will need to put money in advanced and never it is done as the coowner pays
So, let them know your intention and make the monthly payments and just wait.
Thank you
