Your Place in Spain currently understand that the Brexit decision will affect the purchase process of buying a permanent or holiday home in Spain.

How? 

Well firstly we must advise any changes will take effect only when Britain officially leaves the EU and we understand that is circa 2 to 4 years from when the button is pressed, metaphorically speaking.

What will change?

We can only look at how property in Spain is purchased from countries outside of the EU, countries such as Norway, Switzerland, Russia, Australia and America, for example. The process appears to be straight forward, affordable, and manageable.
It maybe a Visa will be required (available on-line in some locations.) It maybe that the legal costs will increase as the process required for a non EU buyer will perhaps be a little more long winded.
It maybe that the Spanish government will require another tax (why wouldn’t they, like every county they may see an opportunity)

Health care

This is an area where uncertainty is high, currently retirees (65 years plus) from the UK receive free healthcare on a reciprocal basis. It has been mooted that many tens of thousands of Spanish people currently live & work in the UK across many sectors, anything that damages that agreement may impact on those people too.

The value of the Euro

This is a difficult one, in as much as since the decision to leave the EU the euro/pound exchange rate fell to as low as circa 1.16 from a pre referendum high of circa 1.30. As we write this document the rate stands at 1.19 fluctuating around the 1.20 mark, interestingly over the last 4 years the rates have been just as volatile with some highs and lows.
One benefit not to be overlooked is that with the current rates any British seller with a view to returning to Britain will receive more sterling, which could suggest that asking prices are open to a haggle.
After speaking with our currency exchange partners we understand that until an exit, and the timeline for an exit is established, the Euro may well continue to be just as volatile.

A Property purchase stampede?

We Brits love Spain and Spain loves us Brits, the weather, the beaches, the cost of living, the people, the golf, and the villages. For many buyers the dream of owning ‘Your Place in Spain’ is still on, with 2 years at least before any changes are likely to be implemented it may just be the time to get serious again about the prospect of buying before any increases are implemented.

Here is a link to an article written by Mr Marl Stucklin a well renowned Spanish Property market analyst: http://www.spanishpropertyinsight.com/2016/06/27/post-brexit-change-will-come-slowly-british-expats-spain/

In our last blog we told you about the offers available on Terrazas de la Torre Golf Resort in Murcia.  We traveled to Murcia last week and based ourselves in that very beautiful part of Spain and took the time out to explore the development and catch up with where it is up to.

Terrazas is a diamond, a resort that stands out as one that has so much potential and so much to offer its residents from just €59,000.  Don’t forget, our exclusive offer of 750 euro cash back on completion still stands on these when you purchase using the YPiS purchase process!

In our opinion the Polaris World resorts bring a certain luxury to the golfing world, but these resorts are not just for golfers alone.

Ground floor penthouse apartments with gardens

 

24 hour security, swimming pools, gardens, terraces, views over the golf course, restaurants and bars, and a supermarket on site, are just some of the highlights of this gorgeous resort that make it so special.

The security element is one that brings peace of mind and safety.  A ground floor apartment gives you a garden, with just a few minutes stroll to one of the swimming pools, whilst a top floor apartment provides you with beautiful views.  This is a quiet and peaceful resort away from the noise of developments closer to town centers and beaches.

 

???????????????????????????????

A view of the Islas

 

For golfers this is a true paradise, with a spectacular 18-hole golf course designed by Nicklaus Design.  It is the most recent project in which Polaris World has put into practice all the experience of its five previous resorts.
