Moreover, he speaks all languages, which makes it easier to understand the procedures.
You can trust him completely.
Thanks Seb, I asked Google, but unfortunately they don’t go beyond 5 stars!
Without them it would not have been possible!
Our life project was to acquire a residence in Tenerife, but because we are Belgian, cautious, without knowing Spanish and English, the task was difficult. We looked on the internet to find out who was going to coach us, a lawyer? An advisor? Then, like you, we came across Seb. I read the comments and then we said ‘yes, but are they real comments’? And all we can say now is: trust them! Because without them nothing would have been possible because you have both simple and complicated purchases. Our purchase was enormously difficult and the seller made us sweat enormously, but Seb has always been there to solve every problem, he is patient, has good advice, listens and together with his wife Kim they form a great team. The price is quite correct because they also take all the necessary steps, such as the transfer of water, electricity, NIE number, notary, … It is a real all-in formula! Thanks again to Seb and Kim, without you my dream wouldn’t have come true! See you soon on Tenerife, Corinne and Christophe from Liège.
Clear information, solid agreements and everything arranged quickly…
Our tax return was handled professionally in a minimum of time and for a reasonable fee.
Proper help is always on time
Last January I went on holiday to Tenerife. I wanted to see if I could go and live in Tenerife and I had already looked at many sites. But as everybody knows, it is the start of a new life, a new language, new rules and so on. Nobody can say that they know everything and that they know how everything works. Many people are mistaken how much work it is to rent or buy something on Tenerife. I met Seb through the internet and decided to confide in Seb and tell my story. After talking to each other we both went to see if there was a house that met all my wishes in Tenerife. At first I had found a house, but it didn’t go well and my trust in the owner of the house became less and less. After Seb had also taken a look, I decided to look further. I hadn’t told this to Seb yet. One day Seb came up with a perfect house that fulfilled 90% of my wishes. Seb acted perfectly and went there to visit the house and showed me movies. After Seb had sorted things out and discussed them with me, we decided to go for it and inform the owner of the house that I was interested in renting the house. Of course we had to negotiate but we sorted everything out. Seb acted very well and professionally. I decided to move the next opportunity and do the rest of the paperwork. Seb really knows what he’s talking about and will never disappoint anyone. Giving the right advice and putting everything in order. Even after you have everything in order, Seb will still help you. Also arranging all the applications. Seb also knows how to find the right people to help you out. Seb also tells the truth when a person isn’t right. One has to be able to cope with that. I personally followed his advice and that’s why I didn’t have any problems. I know people who think… oh, I can do that. Forget it. One needs the right help. I personally recommend Seb to everyone. A lot of people know Seb too. Really, I recommend everyone, if they want to move to Tenerife, talk to Seb. Then you’ll know it’s the right thing to do. The way it’s supposed to be. I also warn everyone. Watch out, because there are people out there who say they can arrange it. Then you’ll come out cheated and you’ll lose a lot of money. Once again… Talk to Seb and you’ll corroborate my story. Do it and don’t wait………. Sincerely, Richard Hietkamp
Very smooth and clear explanation
Because we wanted to take some precautions regarding the inheritance rights of our property here in Tenerife, we were assisted by Seb. We had a very extensive explanation with several options and 2 weeks later we were already at the notary to sign the necessary deeds and this at a very good price. Thanks Seb and Kim!
We have bought our apartment in Tenerife with the help of these people. They also took care of all my administrative affairs. Really top-notch company and everything that was agreed was carried out.
Thanks Kim and Seb
Hi, Seb and Kim,
Customer friendliness and excellent service towards your customers is certainly not an empty term for you. Spanish taxes with names like IBI and modelo 210, we could not see the proverbial Spanish forest through the trees. You have arranged everything for us on time, always willing to provide more information, always under clear agreements. Even a home visit (far away) wasn’t too much to ask. And all this at a more than correct price.
You make life on the paradisiacal island a lot more pleasant!
Very good and smooth service, even in more complex cases a smooth settlement was achieved. Very customer friendly company. I can only recommend working with them!
Again next year
The way in which they communicated with us was professional and friendly, and our taxes were arranged.
Excellent, again next year.
Great service! Thank you Kim for the smooth handling of our questions and for taking care of the administration. Very smooth service!
My taxes for non-residents have been filed with the tax authorities and paid, with no worries for me. Thanks Seb and Kim, what would I do without you!
After a long search, we filed our tax return via Seb Leeson & co!
Very nice and fast and also the price is great!
Now the stress has subsided and every year our tax return is done professionally!
Very satisfied with Seb and Kim’s service. Respond quickly to mail/whatsapp messages and work at a fair price.
Dear Kim and Seb, I would like to thank you for the fast, professional and correct service. See you next year. I will certainly share your perfect service with others. Greetings winny
This is a company I would certainly recommend to friends and acquaintances. A very personal approach, professional treatment with a cost overview advice and clear explanations, but even after things have been settled the service remains.
Thank you Kim and Seb
A fast and correct declaration
A fast and correct declaration of the modelo 210. One less worry! Thanks very much.
VERY PROFESSIONAL / WARM HEARTED
In December 2019 we wanted to pursue our dream of having our own place under the sun, and we started out doing so on our own, together with a Spanish real estate agency. We realised very soon that it would be better not to make such a decision alone and without guidance. Especially because of the language barrier. Too late, but better late than never we contacted Seb and Kim. They immediately reassured us and took us under their wings. Super professional, very warmhearted and friendly, nothing was too much for them. Because we had already taken some steps ourselves, with the real estate agency, which had not gone very smoothly, Seb immediately reacted very alert and defused the dangerous situation. Furthermore, he guided us step by step over all the hurdles. He did a fantastic job so we could avoid the known pitfalls in Spain. Thanks to Seb and Kim we actually went as two tourists to the notary, signed the deed and received the keys. A little while later they informed us: everything was ok, you are registered with all relevant services, payments to utilities and the community have been made, payments owed to the tax authorities have been made.
Now we get a binder from him containing all the documents concerning the purchase.
I would like to emphasize that without them we would never have been able to bring this to a successful conclusion. You guys are great! Someone who hires you really doesn’t have to worry about anything. Rarely or never experienced such service.
Sonja and Dirk
Kim and Seb have advised and assisted us in completing the Modelo 210 .
Without this FIRST-CLASS team, we would never have been able to accomplish this ourselves.
Thanks to the professional help of Seb and Kim we have been very well informed over the phone about what is and what is not expected of us, so we do NOT pay for what we do not need!
Thanks again to Seb and Kim for the excellent service.
Marc and Ria
Very capable and friendly
We found it exciting to find a reliable (purchase) consultancy in Tenerife. The intention was that we would buy my mother’s apartment. You wouldn’t think it would be very exciting, but there were still some obstacles. We posted a message on Facebook with the question if there were people who knew reliable and capable experts for us. The name of Seb (and Kim) soon came up many times. We had some negative experiences in the past and so we were a bit sceptical. But to be honest, Seb called me very quickly and I immediately felt a “click” during our conversation. We had our first face to face appointment on Tenerife and we expressed our concerns. Seb and Kim were able to take these concerns away and we had a good feeling about it. From that moment on Seb started everything for us and we became the owners of our beautiful apartment in Adeje in January. This fantastic couple has arranged everything for us from A to Z. They even responded so quickly to questions that I could barely keep up with them. 😉 Also now we can always call on Seb and Kim, for questions, doubts you name it. We couldn’t have wished for anything better. Seb and Kim thanks again for your fantastic service and hope to see you soon in Tenerife, which we love so much! Patrick and Carola
In June 2019 we decided to make our dream come true: move/emigrate to Tenerife.
But how do you do that?
After a lot of searching and surfing on the internet we sent an email to Seb Leeson with the question if he could do something for us. This was immediately followed by a very pleasant and trustworthy phone call.
We decided to ask Seb to take us by the hand and guide us from A-Z.
In October we met Seb and his charming wife, Kim.
We had a very informative conversation in which Seb was able to put us back on the ground in a sympathetic way. Seb put us in contact with a reliable and active real estate agent.
Seb and Kim went to work for us.
When we left Tenerife for The Netherlands two weeks later, we had a preliminary contract for the purchase of an apartment and all formalities had been arranged.
Since the end of February we live in our apartment in Tenerife.
With the expert guidance of Seb Leeson we were able to make our dream come true.
We are super happy and grateful that Seb and Kim have come into our lives and will stay in our lives!
Always good advice, and in French! Perfect to explain everything before we bought our property.
Seb helped us from A to Z with the purchase of our apartment.
worth 5 stars
Very friendly and sympathetic people, helped us very well with making a will. Service is smooth! Thanks.
Seb was highly recommended to me for his professionalism and integrity. I was not disappointed and found him to be personable and extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate matters. He is very thorough,dependable and easy to talk to. His help in the purchase of my property was invaluable and I would have no qualms recommending him to anyone. Well done Seb. Kim also does so much behind the scenes so they are a great team.
Professional with a great likeability factor
Seb put our mind at rest straight away in what was a very exciting but scary time purchasing our apartment in Tenerife.
He explained every part of the process thoroughly and so that we was able to understand.
He was always professional but he also had a great likeability factor. A lovely young man.
From beginning to end I cannot fault Seb’s service. Even now he is always there if we need him.
We was presented with a very professional portfolio with all our paper work.
All I can say is… Do it. Its the best thing we have done and we have no regrets.
Debbie and Gary Day – UK.
A Professional and Super reliable recommendation from us
After years of searching we eventually found our home and bought it in December 2019 in Tenerife, and this only because of the wonderful cooperation with Seb and his wife Kim, we as layman and full of doubts, Seb has helped us, nothing was too much for him, every question, every detail regarding the paperwork, he has helped us with his always beautiful smile and full of patience. A great human and grand team, and above all, after-sales service! Thank you Gilbert and Patricia Momerency X
Great service with a smile
Last year we bought an apartment with another real estate agent, which went very smoothly until we realised that he had only done the purchase. IBI still had to be arranged and so we went looking for a gestor. Through Tenerife Voor Nederlandstaligen we found Seb…
After the first contact we knew that we had found the right person. Everything was arranged via email and whatssapp. We in Belgium…Seb in Tenerife
Seb arranged our IBI. Then he saw that our basura was also not in order…….. He looked up our Valor cadastral. Modelo 210 was also handled. What would we do without our Seb? Also a donation to the children was discussed.
Now we have put everything in the hands of Seb & Co. Also, the children now know who they can contact later when we are no longer there …………….. but now we are still enjoy the beautiful island. Thanks Seb and Kim Greetings Gino, katrien, Aaron and Devine
Dear Seb and Kim, Thank you very much
Dear Seb and Kim,
Thank you very much for filing our Modelo 210.
Proper agreements were made and executed correctly. Great team!
Thanks again and see you next year.
seb has assisted us extremely well with our purchase in Tenerife.
everything went perfectly
Trustworthy and reliable
After using about 20 estate agents to sell our flat for a year we had given up hope. Then I met Seb. From the very first moment he came across as someone who knew what they were doing and also someone that actually wanted to help. He gave me tips about how to show my flat and said that he could sell it within 3 months. I didn’t believe him, but I thought, what have I got to lose! Well… I should have believed him. He only showed the flat to potential buyers (unlike other estate agents) and found a buyer within the 3 months!!! I have to say he was professional throughout, explained everything very clearly, spent a lot of time with us and even afterwards kept in touch. Due to his skills and effort he put in to selling our flat we have been able to buy our dream home and have our second child so we cannot be thankful enough. A genuine nice guy!! Thanks Seb, Natalie & Pablo x
I really appreciated Sebastien’s intervention. The information is accurate, clear, repeated to ensure a perfect and complete understanding from beginning to end of the collaboration. As part of the donation I had commissioned him for, his intervention was an immense relief for me. Not only is he very familiar with local legislation, but he also goes without hesitation in search of additional local law that makes the difference for us foreigners. Moreover, his professional contact in Belgium completes exactly what is expected of him in terms of tax correction and law to ensure that his work is carried out in the most appropriate way. A man of integrity, jovial, multilingual, and above all: EFFICIENT. To be recommended for all types of administrative actions (support in purchase/sales/donation/various cadastral research/analysis of old cadastral documents, etc.). His partner assists him wonderfully: a very beautiful team, therefore, thoughtful and relevant. Thank you both.
Seb, thank you for the ever friendly explanation. Quick answer to everything and your high patience.
Also nice to have met you in person and we will certainly continue to work with you in the future. Greetings Isabelle and Didier
Nothing but praise
Actually, so far nothing but praise. At the same time we receive a response late in the evening and on Sundays and holidays! Nowadays this is no longer evident and that is very much appreciated by me. Then there is free advice, even with difficult issues. In short: highly recommended.
Professional & reliable !!
Fantastic help with the purchase of our apartment! Seb and Kim are a top team and are always ready for you..super friendly and reliable!
More than 100% recommended
Seb helped us when we bought our apartment in Tenerife, he was very professional and always available for us. We had no problems, he took care of everything.
Recently we contacted him again for a legal explanation, he took the time to explain everything in detail and always with a smile. He is a very pleasant and serious person who can be trusted without any problems.
I can highly recommend him to anyone.
We are very satisfied with seb
And we certainly recommend him
He helped me with
And a clear explanation regarding the donation of real estate
Best regards astrid
Working together with Seb and Kim regarding the purchase of our apartment in Tenerife went very well and I can advise everyone to contact them.
On all levels it was 100% perfect. HONEST and smooth communication.
Our contact remains and also on the financial level in Tenerife they are well informed.
I was looking for information about tax obligations in Spain. Seb’s information on this subject is clear.
We wanted to know what the legal situation was on Tenerife regarding the admission of family and friends to our apartment.
We had already found many different articles on the internet, but we didn’t find them 100% clear.
After some searching we ended up with Seb.
Thank you Seb, for your explanation, your pleasant chat and especially your clear knowledge.
You are certainly an asset to many and these islands.
Carlo and Sabine.
We are more than happy
We found Seb through a message on facebook. Thanks to him, the purchase of our house went very smoothly. Thanks to Seb, all the steps we had to take were followed up perfectly from start to finish. We experienced the cooperation as honest and pleasant. His wife also deserves a compliment on this. Even after the purchase of the house, he remains available at all times. In short, we are more than satisfied! Highly recommended!
Top service and recommended for everyone
When we bought our house in Tenerife, we made use of the top services of Seb. While we could also get this from the seller’s real estate agent, I still advise everyone to work with Seb. He has no interest in selling or not selling and works especially for you as a buyer. Thanks to the cooperation with him, we saved money ourselves. He helps you with the paperwork, nie number … He is always available and thinks along with you for the best solutions for your purchase/investment. If I buy anything else in Tenerife, I call in Seb for this.
We wanted to buy a holiday home in Tenerife and we were referred via-via to Seb Lesson and so we met Seb and Kim. After a detailed explanation of how things work in Tenerife, we knew how to start the house hunt.
He has arranged everything for us, NIE application, opening a bank account, all the work after the sale and he will answer all your questions. In short, top service.
A trusted party was very important to us, especially in those foreign countries with unfamiliar regulations, so we would definitely recommend them when buying in Tenerife. They will handle all that needs to be done very professionally and you will get the original documentation/invoices back in a neat and tidy manner.
Thank you Seb & Kim for your dedication and help.
Wassen and Riadh
Great help and support
We met Sebastian and his team during the purchase process of our apartment on Tenerife. He was a great help and support in all administrative procedures. Everything was done on their own initiative and very quickly. We are very grateful about this. It was a very pleasant and uncomplicated personal contact. Sebastian even gave us free advice and help at the end of the mandate, which is certainly not something we take for granted. It was also very helpful that Sebastian speaks German very well. We can only recommend Sebastian and his team based on our experience to anyone interested.
Joanna and Stefan
Through a lot of research work on the internet, we have ended up at Seb & Co by chance. Our dream, buying “an apartment” in Tenerife had been in our heads for a long time. The purchase did not go in the usual way, and still worked out well, thanks to the main player SEB. He has arranged everything for us, but then everything. Bank, NIE no, notary, last will, painter, collection of the furniture of the previous owner …..too much to mention. We would never have done this alone, also because the language is still a barrier. No question was too much for Seb. All meetings took place on a terrace with a “delicious iced coffee” and not in a boring office. Once again a big fat thank you to guide us so well, SEB & CO. And we will see each other again in Ghent at the fair. Until then.
Dirk and Katty
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Seb Leeson for his professional approach of getting all the paperwork done related to the purchase of our apartment.
With a seldom seen passion, everything has been brought to perfection.
Long waiting times were avoided…. Highly recommended!!!!!!
Thank you Seb
Erwin & Martine Heyse
Professionally and with a smile …
Through friends (and with a happy coincidence) we got to know Seb and Kim. What was to be an introductory meeting (with an explanation of their services), became a long, fun and interesting afternoon on our terrace. With a lot of confidence we went with Seb & co for the purchase of our 2nd apartment.
Once the offer was accepted by the sellers, Seb & co could start: from checking the compromise, preparing for the signing of the deed, checking if there are no outstanding debts and/or if there is a loan on the property – and the assistance in signing the deed, as well as the transfer of the counters … everything is done by them. And all this for a very fair price.
They ensured smooth and correct communication, clear agreements, perfect handling of all administrative obligations, a joke in between, a lot of knowledge and the right way … helpful with every kind of question … what a big difference with our experiences at the first purchase!
End result … a folder with all documents, supporting documents and statements … fully finished!
It was very nice to be able to work together in this (professional) way and in confidence!
Legislation, life lessons, travel experiences, good food … we still have a lot to catch up on!
Thanks Seb & Kim!
Michèle & Kathleen
Just before our third purchase in Tenerife we met Seb and Kim. Happily! We could immediately experience the difference with our previous solicitor.
Professional, correct and honest. Not to mention the hospitality and openness of this beautiful couple. No question is too much for them, always willing to make time.
We are very grateful to these people for the smooth handling, but they are also a point of contact in our own language in a country where the legislation is still different from ours.
Seb and Kim are perfectly aware of the ins and outs of Tenerife but also of the local administration. Very handy. That’s why I can recommend everyone to work with these people to guide you through the handling of your purchase… Last but not least, we have a bunch of nice friends left over from it. John and Rita
Competent and reliable
We got to know Seb through someone else, in the search for an apartment in Tenerife.
He took some time in an informal way, on a terrace, to get to know us and our wishes. Soon a lot of apartments could be thrown in the bin in our self-sought folder!
The handling and administration of the purchase went perfectly, right down to the last detail, everything was correct on time and professional! Although he doesn’t work with an office where you can be received, you can trust him for 200%!
Even now we can always call on him for a question, a restaurant, place to be, etc.
Thank you Seb for remaining our link between Belgium and Tenerife!
A few years ago we decided to buy an apartment in Tenerife. We wrote to about twenty estate agents and most of them responded by e-mail; some also by telephone, including Seb. One evening he phoned and asked if we had fifteen minutes for him. That quarter eventually became 2 hours… During that phone call we covered all possible aspects of a purchase in Tenerife.
Our choice was taken immediately: we were clearly dealing with someone who knows his trade. This was also evident in the time he spent afterwards to solve all possible details. Even after the purchase he took care of all the documents we needed.
In short: If you choose Seb, you choose professionalism.
Jenny and Harry, Aalst
After a few rounds of questions in Facebook groups from Tenerife… Seb&Co came out on top. Once contacted, the click was there right away 🙂 He’s a great guy and takes the time to explain everything to you in layman’s terms. Not those fancy words like notaries and lawyers use all the time, which you don’t understand. Also he tries to help you with anything he can. He accompanies you from beginning to end.
I can’t help but put it this way… “Top service”! You and your team do that well Seb 👍
Carole & Jochem
Just do it 👍
The time and energy he invests in the completion of “a last will” only indicates how professional he is. No question is too much and you get a clear explanation. He’s very passionate about what he does, that is for sure. We would like to recommend him to everyone so that you can continue to enjoy yourself in Tenerife. If you are looking for the following:
- Professional approach
then you need to work with Seb Leeson & Co.
Couldn’t be better
I met Seb through a another person who had already used him before. He has done the paperwork for my purchase in Tenerife.
I can tell you that everything was just PERFECT.
Everything went according to plan, nothing was too much for him.
He himself brought me all my documents when I was back in Belgium and handed them over to me here.
We recommend him highly to arrange everything when you are buying something.
DON’T DOUBT JUST CONTACT HIM
Seb has helped us a lot in drawing up a long term lease contract for our apartment in Tenerife. I wouldn’t have been able to do it myself and a top speed handling (as we are used to in Belgium), for which thank you very much! Ann and Freddy.
We too got to know Seb through people we met. We were immediately convinced of his positive attitude. He is helpful and with the necessary knowledge, a good supervisor, always available and always ready with feedback. Thank you again for all the answers to our questions. An example for many.
