A NUMBER of Costa del Sol estate agents have joined an Olive Press campaign to expose the unethical practice of lawyers giving estate agents ‘kickbacks’ for work.
Launched last month, our ongoing probe aims to stamp out the bent practice of lawyers paying estate agents unethical commissions up to 20% in return for conveyancing work.
With a number of clean lawyers already backing the campaign, agents are now coming out in support.
Leading the charge is Marbella’s longest-established agent Chris Clover, from Panorama Properties, who insists that the practice is ‘abhorrent’ and an idea that he would ‘never entertain’.
Other estate agents adding their weight to our campaign include Terra Meridiana, Cluttons, Hudson International Properties and Inland Andalucia.
While law firms offering their support are My Lawyer in Spain, Lawbird, MT Legal, Anderson PCL, Temple Cambria, Gutierrez del Alamo & Martos Abogados, Poveda & Associates Lawyers, Paradigm Family Law, C&S Abogados and Bench & Co.
