Legal tip 12. Fundamental rights of foreigners in Spain
30 November 2008

I am starting a new serie of legal tips so you can know and enjoy  the broad field of  rights and freedoms legally recognised to foreigners in Spain.

I am going through the provisions of the Inmigration Act ( 2000).

Any questions or doubts...please let us kow.

Provision 3. Rights of foreigners and interpretation of Law.
 
1.- Foreigners have in Spain all the rights and freedoms exposed in Title I of the Spanish Constitution, according to the terms established in International treaties, in this Law and in those laws which regulate every of these rights. As a general interpretative criterion, it will be understood that foreigners exercise rights recognised in this Law in equal conditions to Spanish nationals.
 
2. Law rules regarding fundamental rights of foreigners will be interpreted according to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and to International Treaties and Agreements on same matters enforceable in Spain. Different religious, cultural or ideological beliefs or practises,cannot justify any act against these rules.

Legal tip 11. Dependence Act: elderly and handicapped
30 November 2008

 

Dependence Act, which was backed by businessmen, Trade Unions, associations for elder and handicapped people and by a big majority of policy parties, has created a new citizenship right in Spain: the right of dependent people (elderly and handicapped) to receive state support. This Law establishes the system for autonomy and dependency care as the fourth pillar of the Welfare Estate in our country, together with Health, Education and pensions system, which were developed back in the 80´s.

There are 1.125.000 dependent persons in Spain, this number will grow considerably during the next years, according to demographic previsions.
 
So far, attention to dependent people was carried out by families and especially by women.
 
This new State system guarantees elderly and handicapped people the access to the following social services:
 
- Prevention of dependency situations.
- Home care service.
- Remote care.
- Day and Night services
- Nursing homes.
- Other technical helps.
 
Together with financial helps (for helpers hiring, family care services, and individual assistance)
 
The system is also building a number of centres for elderly people care. Currently, the National Department for Work and Social Services is building centres for Physical handicapped in San Andres del Rabanedo (León), Alzheimer in Salamanca, Rare illness in Burgos and Strong Mental disorders in Valencia, among others. 
 
Basic covers are financed by the National Government. The full financing of these programmes is shared between National and Regional Governments.
 
Beneficiaries will enjoy the covers according to their economic situation, within a balance and fair scheme and always present that no beneficiary will be excluded due to lack of finances.
 
Foreigners enjoy same rights as spanish nationals if they have got five years of legal residency in Spain of which two of them need to be inmediately anterior to application.
 
Provision 14 of Law for  rights and freedom of foreigners in Spain and for their social integration:

Artículo 14. Right to Social Security and social services.

1. Foreign residents have all the rights to access  benefits and services of the Social Security under same conditions as Spanish nationals.

2. Foreign residents have rights to social services and benefits, both general and basic and specific, under same conditions than spanish nationals.

3. Foreigners, regardless their administrative situation ( residency), have rights to basic social services and benefits.

Legal tip 10. Rental assistance programme for young people. Spain
28 November 2008

Young people aged 22 to 30 can get:

210 euros a month to pay their house rent for as long as four years.

You can save 2,520 euros a year on your rent, and a total 10,080 euros in four years.

A 600-euro loan for your rent deposit.

This money must be returned when your rental contract ends or when you stop getting the assistance money.

If you need a rental guarantee, 120 euros for bank charges.

This covers most of your initial rental costs. Altogether, you can save 930 euros in the first month, with the loan's 600 euros, the 120 euros for the guarantee, and the 210 euros of the first monthly payment.

Legal tip 8. Spanish Nationality new possibilities
26 November 2008

I know that you all are very proud of your  current nationality.... and I think that is the way to be...  within a civilized frame...but just in case you have any friend who was the son/ daughter or grandson/grandaughter of a Spanish National....

Next December 28th  (Innocent Day... kind of April fools day in the UK in the secular celebration)starts a 2 years period for this people to apply for Spanish nationality according to Additional Provision number 7 of Law 52/2007.

It is not a joke or a prank!

Legal tips 3. For landlords
18 November 2008

If you rent your property out, use a product to submitt the contract to arbitration ( no Courts) and hire an Insurance for unpaid rents.

That will take all the stress out regarding Rentals in Spain. I can give to you my Lawyer´s word.

I think Justin will be helping you a bit with this soon.

2 and half months for succesful execution of Bank Guarantee
14 November 2008

Who said that Bank Guarantees cannot be executed and if executed, it will entail long and costful processes?

Just for your peace of mind and  to somehow restore your faith in the judicial spanish system: 

It has taken 2 months and half for one of our clients ( we already have the money in our bank account and are transfering it to him, early next week)  and have costed him nothing as the Judge has imposed the Guarantoor to pay legal fees.

We are COSTALUZLAWYERS.ES and use the BLUE OCEAN STRATEGY. We learnt from Cirque du Soleil!!
14 November 2008

Please know that if you go to costaluzlawyers   dot    com    it directs you to a different Law Firm site.  They are not our Law Firm but a different one, not a very nice game.

 We have no time for  dirty games as  our strategy is, as you all know, completely different:  www.blueoceanstrategy.com. These XXI century times deserve other new and refreshing manners.
 
They are among  the convenyancers who were recommended by ADH during the Real Estate boom. We have got  absolutely nothing against them, even though we do not share their marketing ways.
 
I wanted to declare it publicly to deffend our Costaluzlawyers name and to also take the oportunity to share with them that it is not necessary neither effective to play such difficult and old fashioned games.
 
Person oriented creative marketing is the way to do it. The way Costaluz is.
 
Have a fantastic weekend.

Legal tips 2. The legal use of Internet other people’s stuff .Creative Commons
11 November 2008

 

Ours vs. mine
 
Every text, song, picture or video…maker has ownership’s rights. If an author does not explicitly say anything on the contrary, ownership’s rights are his during all his life and for 70 years after his death.
 
This means that just the author or his heirs can copy, reproduce, interpret, make by-works or exhibit it publicly.  If someone wants to use them, needs to ask for permission. The only exception is the right to quote.
 
A creator can also renounce his copyrights and transmit them to public domain.
 
Another possibility are the “copy left” or the “creative commons” (named under abbreviations: CC). They can be copy and distributed by other users with the marginal notes decided by the author.
These are the possible limits to copy and distribution of those works:
 
  • 'Attribution': it requires quoting the author of the work.
  • 'Non-commercial': it requires the copier to not obtain any financial benefit with it.  
  • 'No Derivative Works':  It cannot be used in a derivative version.
  • 'Share Alike': all derived Works needs to be distributed with same license as original.
These can be mixed among them.
For more information, you can enter the site Creative Commons
 
For instance Flickr.com has an image finder who will obtain just those ones with CC licence.
Stock.xchng also allows the storage of open-use licensed pictures.
Social Nets like MySpace has lots of music with CC license.
 
For the searching of these CC works you can use Firefox or Chrome under "predetermined search". Always paying attention to the limits established by the author and specified under the icons of Creative Commons.

Old sale ideas new again
05 November 2008

You have had your house or apartment on sale for a long time…and nothing happens?

Q1.- Is it because you do not get visitors/potential buyers?
Try the following three steps mini-guide…
-     Do a market research regarding similar properties around. This way you can make a comparison and establish a good, reasonable price. Remember that, together with higher possibilities of sale, a less priced sale produces reduced plusvalia and capital gain tax in your favour.
 
-     Strategic Publicity: Of course online resources are preferent:
a)   Look for professional websites with good traffic of visitors. Google will tell you.
b)   Produce a nice informative document with all the house data required by National and/or Regional regulations.
c)   Good pictures ( specially of the bathroom and kitchen) and even a good video will help a lot.
 
      -     Wash the face:
a)   Some small, unexpensive reforms will make you house look much better and  more attractive.
b)   Of course, clean and maintain the house, specially before the visits of potential purchasers
 
Q2.- Ok. You have already done all that and that buyer does not still show up:
 
-     Rent with an option to purchase…the current status financiation talks by itself… no mortgage options…. Rent with an option to buy. ( Highly advisable, for every rental contrat in Spain, to submit the contract to arbitration and to hire an Insurance for rental payment default)

Legal tips 1.- How to reduce your mortgage instalments
04 November 2008

 Banks are not interested in houses and prefer them to be paid by their clients with its corresponding interests... that is just out of commun sense. Therefore before handing the keys back to the Bank you can pay a visit and see if they are open to renegotiate the conditions of the mortgage loan.  A good negotiation will result for sure.

In april 2008 it has been passed a Decree by which mortgage time extensions are free of charge, therefore, by extending the timeframe of  mortgage repayment you can have reduced  monthly mortgage instalments.

 Alo, it is interesting to know that there are new Insurance policies which cover mortgage payments during a certain period if the payer becomes unemployed. There are similar policies for other events such as incapacity or death.
