The Notary Solution
Antonio is a true professional and a pleasure to do business with. His experience and qualifications in both the UK and Spain make him the ideal choice for anyone dealing with Spanish legal matters and I have no hesitation in recommending him to any of my clients or contacts.
It was great to have Antonio Guillen on board and would definitely use his services again. We will not hesitate in passing his details on to anyone who is in the same position as us.
“I really appreciate the trouble that Antonio took to produce the necessary document for me. Thank you so much. I imagined that it would be a complicated procedure, but he made it very easy for me. I am most grateful”.

Antonio Guillen is a true professional in every step of the process in purchasing a property in Spain. In the first instance he prepared a report on our house and included all costs in buying a property. The report highlighted any issues that we had to think about or deal with. His advice was second to none as he is a dual Spanish/English solicitor. He kept us informed every step of the way and was easy to contact by email or phone.
We would not hesitate to recommend him to any potential buyers in Spain. He filled us with confidence every step of the way and always acted in our best interests. Thanks again Antonio.

We found Gunner Cooke to be professional and were impressed by Claudia’s professional and overall service. She kept us fully informed throughout and made the whole process easy to follow until completion.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Gunner Cooke to anyone. As our issue was relating to Spanish Law it was invaluable having a company that could deal with their Spanish counterparts on our behalf.
“I can’t thank Claudia enough for the help she gave me and the work she did. I really felt at a loss as to know who to trust to extricate us from the timeshare agreement which had been mis-sold to us. Claudia was persistent and undoubtably her understanding of Spanish law and the language meant she was much better equipped to quickly bring the matter to a conclusion.
I have already recommended her to a client at the law firm where I am Practice Manager.”
JET VILLAS Spain – Mamen Galán
Our experience with Claudia Font at Gunnercooke has been really good. She’s been always open to talk and having empathy with both parties, although always defending her client. Her experience in Spanish Real Estates make things much easier for both parties, as buying or selling a property in Spain is completely different than in the UK. It has been really pleasant working with her and we hope we have the possibility to repeat in the near future.
Claudia Font is a very knowledgeable and caring lawyer who handled my case professionally and efficiently, liaising with me all the way both to keep me informed and to check that I approved her decisions. She was also extremely approachable and patient, and any doubts I could possibly have were always reassured by her. She acted timely and always considered the various intricacies of my situation as well as my personal and financial needs in order to get the best possible outcome. Engaging her was without doubt of real value to me and I couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer.
Overseas Mortgage Broker
“As an overseas mortgage broker, I find that an issue for British buyers in Spain can often be the legal aspect with many of the lender’s documents being in Spanish
Having worked with gunnercooke, I can highly recommend them. Not only do they provide an English speaking service, but I have also found them to be very thorough and professional, acting with the best interests of the client.
I would not hesitate to recommend them”

Sadly , the borrower had defaulted on the loan and we had to seek repossession proceedings and Claudia coordinated the process with their legal counterparts in Spain in a very efficient , transparent and cost effective manner.
I would highly recommend Claudia and the firm.

When faced with the prospect of selling my Spanish property during the current pandemic I was immediately affected by uncertainties and anxieties about how the process could and would be managed from from a distance . Fortunately I was lucky enough to be introduced to Claudia Font at Gunnercooke in Manchester at a very early stage of the process . Claudia provided immediate reassurance and support with expert professionalism and efficiency which , along with her friendly and prompt guidance , has removed all my stresses and concerns , and led to , what appears to be , a very early and satisfactory completion
Based on my experiences, I can recommend Claudia, and Gunnercooke, without reservation . Thank you !

Advice on a Spanish Non Lucrative Visa
“At the beginning of applying for my Spanish residency post Brexit and feeling rather daunted by all it entailed, I contacted Gunner Cooke in Manchester for assistance. Throughout the entire process I was assisted by Claudia Font, who is extremely professional and has guided me from start to finish, always responding quickly to my emails and telephone calls. I would not hesitate in highly recommending Claudia. “

Testimonial from a client on a cross-border UK-Spain Probate matter
“Claudia Font and her team at Gunner Cooke acted for me and my husband a few years ago and for me again this year following my husband’s death.
She and her team have been excellent in dealing with matters, here and in Spain, with professionalism, keeping me up to date at all points and with courtesy.
I would like to thank Claudia for her sympathy and kindness on the death of my husband and for her endless patience when dealing with my countless questions throughout the processes.
I would certainly recommend Gunner Cooke and Claudia and found the facility to be able to speak, meet with and have them act for me here at Claudia’s office in Manchester rather than having to journey to Spain, invaluable both in time and expense saved. It certainly helped with keeping stress levels down during a difficult time.
I will be using their services again no doubt in the future. Many thanks Claudia and team.”
