Ask our experts David Searl and Jose Luis Navarra


Do you have a question? Ask The Presidents Club!

We have all come across different issues. Noisy neighbours, ilegal buildings and enclosing of terraces, barking dogs and not too mention the closing of swimming pools.

We encourage all our presidents to join the club and share their experience, but to help our members we have appointed a number of experts to help you with those questions that you still haven’t managed to find an answer for.

Post your questions and one of our experts will answer your question and discuss any issues you may have.
