David Searl dies aged 82. The finance guru had helped out many people on the Costa del Sol. He also provided his expertise to the readers of Euro Weekly News. David had a regular column in the paper entitled Legally Speaking where each week he answered readers’ enquiries on legal matters.

Legal expert David passed away on March 18. The US citizen had made a life for himself on the Costa del Sol.

Jesper Sander Pedersen, President of the Costa Press Club confirmed the sad news of David’s passing.

He commented: “It is with sadness that I write to inform you, if you are not already aware, that David Searl, one of the first members of the Costa Press Club, passed away peacefully on 18th March at the age of 82.

“David Searl, a US citizen, settled on the Costa del Sol in the mid-70s and was until his death one of the Costa del Sol’s most important writers of articles and books focusing on legal substance. He was the lead writer on law for the acclaimed monthly magazine ‘Lookout’ and continued on the same track in other English-language media.

“His greatest achievement in this field was the publication of the book ‘You and the Law in Spain’ with 22 editions of advisory information about relevant laws and regulations for foreign expats in Spain.”

Jesper added: “In addition to these works, he was on numerous times a popular lecturer and expert at information meetings in collaboration with the foreign department of Mijas town hall and other local community groups.

“David leaves his wife, Mary, two sons, Ben and Daniel, and three grandchildren.

“The Club sends its deepest sympathy to his family.”
