Can u help? We have a 5 month old baby and a small/medium dog and are looking to rent on condado, as will be nice for our son to grow up. Our budget is quite small! €225 -€250, We have tried Facebook and Google search and have had no luck. Need a apartment quite urgently and would like it for as long as possible. Can anyone help? Thank you in advance.

Try putting this on the community forum (click on forums at top of page)  as you just might find someone on there looking for a long term let. Your budget is rather small though.

Good Luck!

Try renting from a bank. They have many properties on 4 year contracts and the rents are low. Copy and paste this link.

Must it be Condado?  You may find Camposol or Mazarron Country Club better.

Legal Questions? Speak to Maria Direct

My golden advise for landlords is always to submitt rental contracts to arbitration, rather than Courts

In the UK there is very specific legislation relating to the letting of property.  The standard AST lease which is the most common format refers the two parties to the Housing Act 1996.

Any dispute must be handled exactly as prescribed in the lease.  The following is an extract of an actual lease:

<<

  1. (2.6.1) The Landlord must tell the Tenant within 10 working days of the end of the tenancy if they propose to make any deductions from the deposit.  If there is no dispute the Landlord/Agent will keep or repay the Deposit, according to the agreed deductions and the conditions of the tenancy agreement.  Payment of the Deposit or any balance of it will be made within 10 working days of the Landlord and the Tenant agreeing the allocation of the deposit.

    (2.6.2) The Tenant should try to inform the Landlord/Agent in writing if the Tenant intends to dispute any of the deductions regarded by the Landlord or the Agent as due from the deposit within 20 working days after the termination or earlier ending of the Tenancy and the Tenant vacating the property.  The Independent Case Examiner (ICE) appointed by mydeposits may regard failure to comply with the time limit as a breach of the rules of the deposit scheme rules and if the ICE is later asked to resolve any dispute may refuse to adjudicate in the matter.

    (2.6.3) If after 10 working days following notification of a dispute to the Landlord/Member and reasonable attempts having been made in that time to resolve any differences of opinion there remains an unresolved dispute between the Landlord and the Tenant over the allocation of the Deposit the dispute will be submitted to the ICE for adjudication.  All parties agree to co-operate with the adjudication.

    (2.6.4) If the amount in dispute is over £5,000 the Landlord and the Tenant agree to submit to formal arbitration through the engagement of an arbitrator appointed by ICE although with the written consent of both parties the ICE may at his discretion accept the dispute for arbitration.  The appointment of an arbitrator will incur an administration fee to be shared equally between the Landlord and the Tenant.  The liability for any subsequent costs will be dependant upon the award made by the arbitrator.

    (2.6.5) The statutory rights of the Landlord and the Tenant to take legal action through the County Court remain unaffected by Clauses (2.1 – 2.6.4) above.
    >>

If you are not dealing with such matters regularly you are best to delegate the task of lease preparation and the deposit holding to the Letting Agent.  Preferably one who is professionally qualified and/or belongs to ARLA or similar.  If you fall foul of any of the legislation, as a landlord, it is likely you will be on a loser.  It's not that complex, but it's easy to make a mistake if you're not experienced and there's always new legislation to digest.

I belong to one of the trade associations PIMS http://www.pims.co.uk/home who can assist on many fronts but it's always best to try and sort disputes out amicably, otherwise these things can take over your life!

I checked the lease and as it happens there is not any Arbitration clause, but for me the best general information site is the Lease Advisory Service http://www.lease-advice.org/.

Condado de alhama is a golfing holiday resort not the type of  place people would pick to live on in a permanent basis if you did manage to get a long term rental you would have the initial rent and then the expensive site fees around ££££ per year the site fee is for the upkeep of the swimming pools and general site maintenance  you should have a look up in one of the many Spanish villages and urbinisation you might get a rental for you're budget personally if I was you I would send the main bread winner over  on their own to find a job and a place to live and if it work's out then bring the rest of the family over good luck .

The landlord pays community fees in Spain.  All the tenant pays is the rent and utility fees.

Sanchez 1 l don't think their would be any landlords out their willing to let long term on a golf resort for 250 per month when the community fees are around £1,000 per year do you so he would have to add the fees to the rent otherwise it just would not be worth renting the property out.

Hi windtalker,

Yes I agree.  250 euros per month rent is unrealistic.  The only place you'll get rents at that rate are towns inland.

I was just making the point that it's the landlord that pays community fees and IBI.

Cheers

I thought the post was a bit of a joke, what landlord in the right mind would rent to these people who are on such a tight budget, i can only see problems further down the line.

I have been looking at various sites re rentals and you can get properties for €250 but they are usually inland and pretty small. Would be ok for a couple, but if you have a baby and all the paraphanalia you have with them, it could be a tight squeeze. I am looking for something for my hubby, me and a large dog and finding I am having to look at properties in the € 350-400 price range to get anything with any space. Good luck and let us know if you do find something that cheap, would be very interested myself.
