Daniel Gonzalez Aranda directed an extensive reconstruction of our recently-built, leaking and molding house. Daniel also had drainage installed of the terraces surrounding the house. The restoration was a painful process during which my husband and I sometimes felt we would like to be reassured that the house was going to be okay in stead of hearing more bad news. However, the improvements have turned the worry about coming to Mojacar (what will we find this time?) into enjoyment.We know Daniel as a thorough architect who keeps his appointments, both in time and in work. If we need more work done, we'll definitely ask him again.  Veronica Bakker & Erik Van Arend - Mojacar

We had (and still have)  a holiday home on the borders of Velez Rubio and Velez Blanco and had encountered problems with the builder and subsequently problems with the building. Daniel was introduced to us as a professional  who would be able to conduct a detailed survey and present a report that would be used in trying to rectify the faults and problems we had encountered. Daniel undertook the commission and completed the survey, he was extremely through and did not mince his word in the his comprehensive and detailed report. Unfortunately, the Builder did not respond and we had to take the matter to the courts. Daniel’s report was accepted into the court records in evidence and he also appeared on our behalf to give evidence  which was crucial to our case. I believe that the manner in which he presented his report and evidence before the court had a distinct bearing to the success of our case.

We cannot thank Daniel enough for his services and would not hesitate to use him again if the occasion arose. We would also highly recommend his service to others not only because of his expertise but also as he is an extremely pleasant person to work with. 

Alan Boss - Velez Blanco and Cambridgeshire   

"Daniel was recommended by a friend whose judgement and opinions I trust. He is extremely professional, and more importantly very thorough. He doesn't let any problems phase him and will research any difficulty until he can resolve the matter. He speaks good English and updates me constantly, in fact his favourite saying at the end of every telephone conversation is 'stay in touch' I used to find that funny, but he genuinely does stay in touch. I have, and would recommend him anytime despite him not being local, he has always gone the extra mile. Thanks Daniel, so far it has been a pleasure dealing with you”  Cecilia Carver - Las Pocicas - Albox

My problem was very involved as the escritura was not correct and the local authority did not have the correct names of owners or the proper address.   Daniel came to the property and took very detailed measurements, interviewed local householders and liased with the local authority in order to correct the anomolies.   Overall a very time-consuming business which he handled to my great satisfaction.Michael Menhinick - El Pilar - Huercal-Overa

Without hesitation ,we can recommend Daniel González.Half of our new house together with the pool were collapsing. As we were not getting any help from our builder and architects we called on Daniel for an inspection. It was decided to take the architects to Court and Daniel wrote a thorough and extensive report.,which eventually led us to win our case against the original architects.We asked him to act as our Architect for the remedial work(underpinning  of house and pool stabilising of retaining wall etc.). All very satisfactory. We could not have won our case without his expertise and sheer hard work.  Michèle and David Boler - La Alfoquía - Zurgena

We were advised by our estate agent to contact Daniel to get a certificate of energy efficiency and antiquity certificate for the sale of our villa. Daniel provided a very quick and efficient service detailing exactly what he was going to do, what the cost was and gave us a time scale to complete the work which he worked to. Regards. Graham & Ann Clough - Zurgena

Daniel Gonzalez; a professional technical property expert; in the true sense. I have experienced his dedication to providing client solutions to problems and issues arising with properties.

Thank to the profesionality and skill of Mr. Daniel Gonzalez and his support the matter hasbeen resolve to my satisfaction without having to go to Court. Marianne Manus - Valle del Este - Vera

I'm extremely impressed by Daniel's work and professionalism and I would not hesitate to engage his services again in the future. I asked him complete a certificate of antiquities for my property in Arboleas and found Daniel to be prompt in reply, completing the work for certification to be granted at my town hall in both a very efficient and professional manner. His price was very reasonable for the work completed but what I really liked about Daniel is that he kept me fully informed at every stage of the process and extremely helpful in all aspects of the work carried out. Dawn Elizabeth Youlden - La perla - Arboleas

 "We were delighted with quality of the survey provided by Daniel. We bought a property in Mojacar that we had only seen once and were reliant on his findings. The detail that he went into was far more than we were expecting, including photographs and it reassured us to go ahead with the purchase. I would not hesitate to recommend him." Chris Langley - Mojacar

We used the services of architect Daniel Gonzalez Aranda, in order to have the proper legal paperwork when we sold our villa in 2015.We found his services to be very professional and prompt in obtaining the necessary papers to sell our villa, and his services were very professional and we are sure it helped to proceed with the sale by having the paperwork for the legislative papers we required when we presented the appropriate paperwork to the Notary in Vera. Betty & Atholl Ferguson - Zurgena 

I can say the work Daniel González did for me was excellent and that I was happy with the quality the price and the time taken to complete the work.  Ian Glendining - Arboleas

Daniel became known to us whilst employed by clients buying our property. We found him to be extremely professional and very thorough. We were so impressed, we decided to approach him when we were in the process of buying another property. We can honestly say, we could not have gone ahead with the purchase if it hadn’t been for his tremendous dedication and perseverance. Daniel is a true professional dedicated to his work and we have no hesitation in recommending him.Gilbert & Mary McHarg, La Concepcion, Huercal Overa

I highly recommend Daniel Gonzalez Aranda, having used his services (in 2015) for both Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), when selling my former property, and Property Inspection Report (home buyer's survey), when purchasing my current property, an old cortijo. On the latter, he was particularly helpful in providing third party estimates for the necessary remedial work and in helping negotiations with the Sellers resulting in a substantial reduction of the purchase price, which more than justified his, very reasonable, fee. I found Daniel to be extremely thorough, conscientious and professional in his work and an extremely good communicator, in English. Alyn Edwards - Tabernas

Having run our property rental & pool & property cleaning business ( Guardian Angels Properties ) in San Juan de los Terreros for over 10 years we have dealt with Daniel on many occasions and always found him to be very professional at all times. He is always very smart and turns up on the day and time he says he will, a very rare thing in Spain. His fees are very reasonable and we have recommended his services to many other people and have no hesitation to do so again. Carol and Derrick Towlson – San Juan de Los Terreros - Pulpí

Daniel carried out a very thorough survey of our property prior to our purchase in Spain. His report was very professional and clear and in English.Jo & David Brocklebank - Vera Playa 

Regarding Daniel Gonzalez Aranda of Property Inspection Reports.

We first met Daniel when he performed the survey on a villa we wished to purchase in Albox, Almeria.  Daniel presented us with a very detailed report – highlighting any work that may need to be done in the future and recommendations for work to be completed now.  We were very pleased with his work. 

Once the purchase was completed we again employed Daniel to look into legalizing the property.  He liaised with the appropriate people in the Town Hall and took all the worry and work away from us and just “got on with it”.  He liaised with our Lawyer and kept us informed of progress as he went along.

We would definitely recommend Daniel to anyone who is looking for a surveyor and would be more than happy to speak to anyone personally regarding our reference. Sarah & Stephen Hyne – Albox 


Daniel performed a pre-purchase survey for me and flagged-up an issue which may have prevented the sale. He immediately reported this to me and subsequently the vendor was able to rectify the situation. I would certainly use his services again and have no hesitation in recommending him.

Fiona Greer – Villaricos – Cuevas del Almanzora


I have worked with Daniel the past three years and I hav found him to be punctual … which is rare here in Southern Spain and very professional in his work. Both myself and the clients I send him find him very amicable and easy to work with, which again is very rare here in southern Spain. I know that I can order him a job and he will get on with causing no problems and giving me peace of mind. I would recommend him to anyone.

Juan Carlos Gutierrez - REMAX  

 

We contacted Daniel via his advertisement in the press firstly to arrange for a Energy Certificate for a house we were selling and found him to be very thorough and professional, arranging and meeting with us at the appropriate time and delivering the Certificate promptly.  We also needed his professional services with licenses plans etc for our current home, all of which has been a bit complicated.  However, Daniel has  advised us on all of the necessary matters and produced all the necessary plans, licenses, paperwork etc we required.  He has throughout the process been extremely helpful, coming to our house when needed to explain matters in more detail and has always been prompt and punctual.  We find him very pleasant to work with and know he has often put himself out to sort matters for us without us having to ask him.  We appreciate all of his hard work. David and Sally Hardwick - Vera

We appointed Daniel to do a survey on a property we were planning to buy even though our estate agent assured us it wasn't necessary.  We were so glad we did as Daniel's very thorough, comprehensive survey pinpointed quite a few problems we hadn't noticed.  We were able to negotiate with the vendors to get the problems sorted before we went ahead with the purchase. We would have no hesitation in recommending Daniel to anyone considering purchasing a property, a very professional service. Phil and Barbara Toothill - Chercos

"We had the pleasure of having Daniel on our side in a particularly complex case when we were living in Spain. His expertise, professionalism and command of the situation was first class. He is both personable and professional and obviously well respected by other professionals. We have no hesitation in recommending Daniel and wish him all the very best in his career." Norman and Alison Devereux – Pinar de Bedar - Bedar

Dear Daniel:I finally have time to write to thank you for the wonderful “work” we had had  at home, four or five years ago.It is unforgettable because there were a lot of damages and changes to repair. You give us good advices  about them so I can´t thank you enough and trust  we didn´t inconvenience you too much. María Algarte - Almería

We have known Daniel for many years having originally sought his professional help in investigating, diagnosing,  and overseeing the successful remedy and repair of a  problem with a property we owned.   His professional experience & knowledge coupled with the extensive & detailed investigation methods ( not least his excellent detailed written reports)  he employed were impressive, and more importantly productive. Not living in Spain  we needed somebody we could trust & Daniel was given unfettered access to the property where he  oversaw the complete selection & management of sub contractors,  the quality control of their work including the verification of billing & cost control.- I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Daniel Gonzalez Aranda to anybody in the full knowledge that his experience, professionalism, knowledge , honesty and integrity ( and in particular  for those with limited or little Spanish, as his English, spoken & written is excellent   ) will make their project, whatever it may be, a smooth and professional experience. James Kavanagh - Vera

I have known Daniel of Property Inspection Reports for many years and having recently worked with him on a large under build of a villa that was flooding. I found Daniel to be one of the very few Spanish architects to fully understand the causes and solutions to damp in buildings . His knowledge of general construction is excellent as is his spoken and written English so there are no misunderstandings with specifications.Kevin Nurse - Southern Spain Damp Proofing

We were introduced to Daniel Gonzalez by a neighbour on Agua Nueva where we were purchasing a property. 

The property was in a low lying part of the development and was subject to flooding when the rains came! It also had a basement which flooded when it rained heavily and which was damp and constantly smelled of damp! 

On completion of the purchase, we found that the French drain, installed by the Promotor, was wrongly constructed, that there were many faults in the build of the house and in the electrical and air conditioning installations, all of which had to be corrected before we could occupy the property. Daniel acted not only as our Technical Advisor on all the remedial work but also as our Project Manager, liaising  with, and co-ordinating, all the contractors involved in the remedial project. His biggest challenge was calculating the levels of the plot so as to install drainage to prevent further flooding of the plot and of the basement, because the basement windows were extremely close to the ground level of the plot. His meticulous attention to detail came to the fore when calculating these levels, determining the soil conditions to support the swimming pool and in determining the specification for the build of the swimming pool as a number of pools in the area had either tilted in the ground or had broken due to ground movement.

Daniel was on site every day, or on-call and available, to deal with any emergencies or unforeseen problems of which there were many! Thanks to Daniel’s attention to detail, diligence, expertise and technical experience, we now have a beautiful home which is free of damp and in which everything works, terraces from which the rainwater drains away from the house and a pool which, according to the principal contractor, was built to the standard of a nuclear shelter!   Would we recommend Daniel Gonzalez to you ……. Absolutely! Dr Harry J Breen & Mrs Mary B Breen

I would like to confirm that Daniel Gonzalez has been working for an English friend and client of mine, for an extended period of over 2 years. My client is pursuing a court claim against his house builder/promoter here in Spain. I manage his day to day affairs in Spain as he lives in the UK and uses his villa here as a holiday home. I have had many dealings with Daniel regarding my client, and a couple on a personal nature, and I would like to state that he has always proved to be professional, knowledgeable, courteous and honourable. He is also a very approachable person and non judgmental. It has been a pleasure dealing with him and I would whole heartedly recommend him to others. Nick Güill – Velez Blanco

'My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Daniel in October 2015 with some badly needed renovations to our property in Agua Nueva, Turre.  We were both highly impressed with they way he diagnosed underlying problems and helped us work with the contractor who provided the repairs.  We would gladly utilize Daniel's services in the future and recommend him to others for any related projects whether it's new construction, upgrades and/or repairs.' Fred Levitan – Agua Nueva - Turre

t has been my pleasure to work with Daniel on a number of occasions, most notably when problems have arisen for clients that have required expert advice before a solution can be achieved. He has always delivered his written opinion, report or project within the agreed deadline and has helped these clients resolve the issues either by negotiation with the parties involved or, when this has not been possible, by appearing as an expert witness in the necessary courts or hearings. His conduct is always professional, courteous and positive and his command of English is remarkable.                               Carrie Roots – Owner of Real Spain Properties – Velez Blanco

Thank you very much for moving to Spain and being such a good option to indigenous Spaniard competitors. Sincerely. Assis & Jutta Fernandes - Mojacar
