Expert Spanish property lawyers Fuster & Associates and the respected Association of International Property Professionals (AIPP) have joined forces in a new partnership setting industry benchmarks to improve the new-build house buying process in Spain.

“Safer new property buying process for consumers at heart of new partnership”

David Fuster and his team created the Fuster Standard in order to meet the critical need for rigorous legal support for Spanish property agencies. The Standard guarantees all the necessary legal paperwork has been completed in advance of a property being offered for sale, providing reassurance both for the agent selling it, and the consumer buying it.

“Our goal is to reduce potential risks both to agents selling Spanish properties and to those buying them. We are looking ahead to a safer buying environment in 2020 through our partnership with AIPP, creating a roadmap for agents and their clients to avoid the pitfalls of the past and work towards a brighter future.”


AIPP is the trade body for professionals around the world dealing with buyers of foreign property. It is a non-governmental, not-for-profit organisation helping both the industry and the public.

“AIPP’s mission is to improve industry standards and help buyers make sensible choices. With the kind of purchase problems which can relate to new properties, it makes sense to look at the supply-side. Our agreement with Fuster & Associates establishes a new benchmark of due diligence at the point of sale, avoiding problems for sales agents and their clients long before the conveyancing stage. This perfectly complements our new AIPP agent training initiative, covering both compliance and business skills”

“Quality, assurance and reliability all top priorities for buyers and sales agents”

Agents who sign up to the Fuster Standard can access an intelligent map that displays all new certified housing developments on the Costa Blanca and Costa Calida, with a planned roll-out across Spain. The new agreement was signed by Fuster & Associates Founding Partner David Fuster and AIPP CEO Peter Robinson at the Fuster & Associates 20th anniversary event on the Costa Blanca 1st March 2020.

Fuster & Associates support clients in a wide range of property-related matters. This includes helping over 200 families to reclaim deposits lost to developers who went bust in the early 2010s.
