Cher Maître, après plus de deux ans d'utilisation de vos services, je tenais à vous témoigner ma très grande satisfaction. Vous m'avez accompagné dans la demande du statut de RNH et les différentes démarches administratives qui en découlent, ainsi que dans l'acquisition d'une maison ici en Algarve. Chaque fois que j'ai eu une question où un petit problème administratif ou juridique, vous et votre équipe, avez toujours été là pour m'aider et me trouver les solutions.
Je tiens à vous en remercier très vivement. Il est très rassurant d'avoir quelqu'un pour vous comprendre et vous aider en pays "étranger" chaque fois que nécessaire. Je remercie aussi très chaleureusement votre équipe d'assistantes tant pour la qualité de leur accueil toujours charmant, ainsi que pour leurs grandes compétences. A chaque fois que j'en ai l'occasion, je vous recommande auprès de mes relations qui veulent s'installer au Portugal. Bien sincèrement. Gérard Caballé

Best rekommendations for RH, rui hor´ta advogado in Tavira, and 'our' lawyer, Marisa Fernandes. We are a Swedish couple which moved permanently to Portugal, one year ago. Through a Swedish friend, living here, with good experiance and help from Marisa he introduced us for her. She has helped us with all necessary papers to become Portuguese in the sence of NIF, NHR, insurance, all contracts you may need if you buy an apartment or a house, and so on. Our estate agent said when we bought our house, such a good lawyer you have, fast in correspondence, correctly. And we agree, when we have needed her help, she answer so quickly. If you need a lawyer in any case, don´t hesitate to contact her. Monika and Kent

I can only agree with the positive comments already posted here. Tavira Lawyers work as an efficient and friendly team. They make the potentially stressful experience of buying or selling a property in an unfamiliar country and language as straightforward as it possibly could be. Thank you.

I purchased some property in Cabanas and used Rui's legal services. At all times Rui and his team were efficient and very professional. They provided a "One Stop Shop" for all my requirements including setting up the various utilities, bank account, acting as my fiscal rep etc. I would have no hesitation in recommending Rui for all your legal and Portuguese requirements.

Undoubtedly the purchase of our apartment in Tavira was the simplest and most efficient purchase we have ever made due to the excellent service from Rui Horta and his team. We left everything in their hands and on our first visit we countersigned paperwork, visited the Land Registry office and opened a bank account within two hours. The service we received at each location was impeccable. Without doubt we would highly recommend Rui Horta to anybody contemplating purchasing property in Portugal.

We were impressed at our first appointment by the complete service Rui Horta offered to make not only the process of purchasing property abroad but the start up service ensuring all the facilities would be in place and standing orders set up it has taken the pressure off us and literally all we had to do was transfer the money. This has made the buying process so much easier and we would recommend Rui Horta to anyone thinking of buying abroad. As we had to return to the UK we gave Rui Horta power of attorney receiving regular email updates and the purchase was concluded on our behalf everything in place for us to return to enjoy our fabulous apartment. Would definitely recommend and we will continue to use this firm for legal services.

FANTASTIC SERVICE!
I would like to thank Rui Horta solicitors for an excellent service provided for me and my wife in purchasing an apartment in Tavira.
In particular, Marisa, who was our solicitor, was superb; especially as we had to return to England and so we left her with Power of Attourney. In England we were provided with regular updates as to how the property sale was going and answering any enquiries or worries promptly. All legal procedures were completed efficiently and, as a result, the whole process went smoothly.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Rui Horta and have retained their services as our fiscal representative.

Excellent handling of all details from beginning till end regarding me settling in Tavira in my new apartment. Everything has been carried out in the best way, and the friendliness from all staff could not have been greater. I feel very content with their work, will stay on as their client in the future. I wish to take this opportunity to recommend this office to all of those in doubt whether or not to engage a solicitor for managing all the work that comes with a property purchase. Don´t think twice - just do it!

I would like to thank Dr Rui Manuel Horta and his team for making it possible for me to purchase a flat in Tavira on the last day of my holiday in Portugal, which at first sight seemed like a mission impossible.
In the most professional and efficient way, they took care of everything so that I could fly home to Norway, the next morning, without any worries.
The process went perfectly as expected.
I was touched by their friendliness and reliability at any time, and can highly recommend their services.
Dr Rui Horta/ Taviralawyers is my legal advisor in Portugal, and this makes me feel safe.

Je remercie Maître Ruy Horta pour les services rendus.
J'ai été totalement satisfaite de l'efficacité du personnel du cabinet.
Maître Horta à qui j'avais délégué mes pouvoirs a tenu tous les engagements qu'il avait pris.
J'encourage tous les français désirant acquérir un bien au Portugal à passer par son intermédiaire, s'ils souhaitent que tout soit fait dans les temps et les règles avec facilité et un professionalisme digne d'éloge.

My brother and sisters and I were very pleased with the way Rui and his team dealt with our late father's estate in Portugal and the sale of property there. Very efficient and helpful in answering questions and explaining the differences between the process in England and Portugal, and stuck to the fee agreed too which was reassuring.

Thank you Mr Rui Horta for making the purchase of my property in Portugal such a pleasant experience, the

first house buying in my life that I can say that about.

I found the practice on the British Consular website which made me feel fairly confident about the level of

service I should expect, what the website does not tell you is that Mr Rui Horta is a gentleman and a true

professional.

From our first meeting he understood that I needed some urgency as other parties were also interested in

the property, he left me feeling confident in his ability to carry out the conveyancing swiftly.

A week later I received an email congratulating me on my house purchase.

Mr Horta the service you offer is ' SIMPLY THE BEST'.

I cannot even express the efficiency of this law firm. Everything was done seamlessly. I have heard so many stories of people waiting months for everything to be completed and not having any communication. This experience for us was the complete opposite. The communication was constant, we always knew when things were going to happen and if anything was needed from us. I would recommend Rui Horta very highly!

Dr. Rui is an excellent and efficient professional. He handled our house purchase with absolute efficiency. The great thing about Dr. Rui and Clara Rosa is that when they promise to do something, they do it. Besides this, they are great fun to deal with and always enjoy a laugh and a joke - the way business should be.
I recommend this law office especially as I moved here from a lawyer in who I was no longer confident.

We are very pleased with the level of service and friendliness at Mr. Rui Hortas law office. Mr. Horta and his secretaties are swift, friendly, efficient and always helpful. No problem seems to be too big or too small for them to take action and find solutions. We had heard that property acquisition in Portugal was time consuming and difficult, but in the hands of Rui Horta, it proved to be quick, easy and hassle free. We do not hesitate to recommend their services.

Vi ble anbefalt Rui Horta da jeg besøkte en stand for boligkjøp i syden. Det første vi gjorde var å besøke Horta for å få ordnet med fiscalnummer. Deretter ble det kjøp av eiendom. Rui Horta tok seg av alle formaliteter på en svært betyggende måte. Det var stort sett bare å hente nøklene og flytte inn. Senere når det har vært behov for private eller offentlige tjenester og spørsmål om hvem vår fiscal representant er, er alltid responesen positiv når vi sier det er Rui Horta. Vi føler oss godt ivaretatt. Horta kan varmt anbefales.

We bought a nice piece of Portugese land in Sto. Estevao, but with a slight land problem. Rui fixed this nicely for us. Than we started to build our house with builder Mestre e Cavaco. The team of Rui Horta and Mestre is the best if you ever decide to buy land and build your own house.
No problems and ready within one year which is even for Portugese standards remarkable quick. As Rui did a lot of inspection on the building site he ruined his dancing shoes.But we replaced them by nice dutch wooden shoes. Also his team of Clara and Sheila helped a lot. The after-sales is perfect.
Thank you.

Rui Horta's Law Office in Tavira came highly recommended to us via my Cousin who used his practice when purchasing an Apartment in Cabanas in 2006.
Along with Rui all his staff have been very helpful. Although all our correspondence has been done via e.mail and telephone we finally met them all at Christmas.
They have made our purchase of an Apartment in Cabanas so easy and today had a e.mail to confirm completion.
We have no hesitation in recommending them, not only as professionals, but also as people.
We look forward to going to Tavira and thanking them in person, and confirming we wish them to become our lawyers for any further transactions.

Mr Rui Horta was recommended to me by a local estate agent in Tavira.I have recently purchased an apartment in Cabanas with the excellent help and knowledge of Mr Horta and his assistant Clara. The buying process in Portugal was explained to me in an easy and straight forward way and I was kept appraised of every step of the process via Email and telephone calls from Mr Horta/Clara. I found Mr Horta and Clara easy to contact and very efficient in every thing they do. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mr Horta to anyone looking for a lawyer in Tavira and I look forward to doing business with Mr Horta and Clara in the future

We bought an apartment in Tavira in April 2007 and were introduced to Mr Horta by a local estate agent.

We have found Mr Horta to be a friendly,courteous, and professional lawyer who is extremely conscientious in looking after our interests.

His competent secretary,Clara is also very helpful and like Mr Horta speaks English very well.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Mr Horta and his staff to anyone who requires legal advice, particularly if they are thinking about buying property in Portugal.

Rui Horta has been wonderful in helping me to but an apartment in Vila Real de Santo Antonio - particularly in checking the land ownership on one property and saving me from making a big mistake. I consider him to be a good friend as well as an excellent lawyer.
Clara has also been really helpful - especially when I've struggled to understand how to manage my bank account in Portugal.

I would recommend this firm very highly and I will continue to use them for all my legal and financial business.

Vlak voor Kerstmis 2007 kochten wij via de makelaar Michael Julian Propiedades een heerlijk huis in Belmonte, Luz de Tavira.
In Holland waren wij gewaarschuwd voor de Portugese traagheid en bureaucratie van de diverse overheidsinstanties.
Rui Horta en zijn vriendelijke assistentes hebben het tegendeel bewezen. Notabene op 2e Kerstdag startten wij de onderhandelingen in zijn smaakvol ingerichte kantoor. Wij kregen een fiscaalnummer en hij regelde personlijk een bankaccount bij de Banco Espirito Santo.
Binnen een maand, zoals afgesproken, werd de verkoopakte gepasseerd bij de notaris.
Riu Horta is niet de goedkoopste, maar wel de beste. Hij is strikt ter zake, duidelijk en houdt zich aan zijn gemaakte afspraken.
Zoals voorgeschreven door de Portugese wet, treedt hij voor ons, als niet-ingezetenen, op als onze legal representative.
Wij kunnen hem aan iedereen van harte aanbevelen voor alle juridische zaken.

We bought an apartment in October 2007. We were introduced to Mr. Horta by an estate agent. Mr. Horta looked after all of the legal requirements for the purchase of the property and the setting up of bank accounts, direct debits etc. We found the service provided by Mr. Horta to be extremely good. He was assisted by his very efficient and dedicated secretary Clara Rosa. The fact that Mr. Horta and Clara spoke very good english was of great benefit throughout the proceedings. We would highly recommend Mr. Horta and his staff to anyone seeking legal advice.
