I am hoping that someone can help me.  I have a property in La Marina that has been broken into (I live in the UK).  For insurance purposes, I need to obtain a crime report from the local Police.  I will be coming over to La Marina soon, and am not sure whether I can just turn up at the local Police station to do this.

I have asked my Solicitor if either he or a representative could accompany me to help explain the situation, but he has said that I would be better to phone the Spanish Consulate in London to obtain a report.

I am so stressed out trying to sort all this out, and would be so grateful if someone on this forum could help suggest what I should do.

Many thanks in advance of any help.

Hi 

I had to do this once. I had to go to Guardia Civil (not Policia Local) and wait in the queue. It is essential to take an interpreter if you don't speak Spanish!

The officer will ask you for the details and eventually give you the crime report.

Cheers

Hello Alison,

 Sounds like your solicitor couldn't be bothered to help ( I'd be looking for another solicitor in future).   In the meantime,  as suggested find yourself a translator who can accompany you to the Guardia Civil offices to file your report

Ive sent you a link that should be able to assist you.,  give them a call

Good Luck 

Cheers

The same happened to me. Guardia Civil in Guardamar. Cost me €50 for an interpreter.

Hi, you don't need an appointment to go to the police station, when you go make sure you take all your relevant documents, passport, proof of ownership, a list of the things stolen with value.

Take an interpreter with you.

Good luck, J

Criminal offences must be reported not later than 72 hours.

Many thanks for all of your helpful comments, I now have an interpreter on board and hope everything progresses well.
