PwC renders legal advice to Cogitari Properties regarding its residential development and construction activity in Costa del Sol.

From the beginning of the projects, in coordination with Planificalia, we take care of drawing up all relevant legal documents needed to obtain the building licences, insurance policies associated to the business of the Group, formalizing and registering horizontal divisions and new building works declarations, as well as drawing up the contracts with the builder companies and the rest of significant suppliers involved in the process.

Through the constructive process, we render legal advice drawing up the reservation and private purchase sale agreements, first hand dealing with the obtaining of the bank guarantees related to the amounts paid as part of the purchase price. The recurrent legal advice rendered by PwC to Cogitari Properties allows us to know in all moments the status and circumstances of its developments and clients, being able to provide fast and efficient answers during the whole process of construction and sale, with the guarantee that it is developed according to Spanish legislation.

Steps to be taken

Foreigners buying a property in Spain should obtain a NIE number (Foreign Identity Number) at the Police Station. Additionally, all investors will provide the developer with proof of the source of the funds that they will be investing in Spain, in compliance with Anti-money laundering Spanish legislation. PwC will advice in this matter to speed-up this management before the Spanish bank to which the funds will be transferred.

I founded my Architect company Planificalia in 2006 and got my Master Degree in Architecture at the La Coruña School of Architecture (ETSAC) in 2002 and I completed my education with a Master in Environment and Bioclimatic Architecture at the Madrid School of Architecture.

I come from a family with long traditions in Architecture (my father and my grandfather were architects), and I believe this circumstance has helped me a lot to understand that the architecture is an art but, first of all, architechture has to be useful, thats why functional solutions is very important for Planificalia. The challenge is the combination: beauty and functionality hand in hand.

With this main idea, and after some years working in different companies, I create my own office in Malaga Planificalia in 2006. From the beginning, we understood that the challenge of the architecture in 21th Century is to integrate the energy efficiency in our projects, as the 4th dimension to add to the other 3 dimensions, which the architecture has managed traditionally. Planificalia has today a multidisciplinary team (architects, technical architects, industrial engineers, telecommunication engineers, etc.) leaded by professionals with a long experience combined with young up-comings and new technologies - with this complexity and know how we add value for our clients

Enthusiasm and professionalism are common features in our team, and essential to coordinate more than 20 employees who participate in each project.
