Hi i recently looked in to traveling down to spain from edinburgh to do a bit of fishing on the river ebro around riba roja when looking for ideas i came across this web site thinkspain com and i was listing rural propertys that seem to be perfect for what i would consider a perfect holiday getaway .EG ref 793093 with many more saying 3 hectare ruins ready to rebuild ideal for caravan 5 mins from the river and local town all this and sunshine to !!!
the thought that i could own a piece of sunny spain away from the hussle and bussle for these sort of prices has got me quite interested .
my questions are is there any major pitfalls with these types of propertys i should look out for.
is there any major annual cash outlay eg local taxes on these type of plots.
is there any scams associated with these types of deals can land like this be legaly sold while having any other claims to it
i know in the uk there are legal requirments when making a statment and presenting .a property .eg some ads state u can erect a building or site no permanant cabin or caravan .are these legaly binding statments or just estate agent flimflam.
i know my own soliciter can advise me on any of these issues but it would be nice to have a better understanding i am also aware that there are no final answers to these as law and rules change for each district and local authority.
i have looked at web pages for over a week now and all i seem to get is beware spending cash in spain ,coruption is rife everyone is out to rob you local officials and expats i dont beleve this to be true just feel very cautious.
how long would a tranaction of this type normaly take to complete as i cannot face another scottish summer.
Are these types of places worth the bother ? or should i buy a staic caravan outside one of the costa resorts for twice as much and have a £5000 a year outlay for the pleasure of sun shine . i think a outright purchase and unlimited use and no crowds a better option .
sorry for all the blah blah any help advice or stories appreciated
