Re: Sold property: final tasks to complete

Question for in.di.go (please forgive my nosiness) - what were the factors in you deciding to sell up? I remember you bought about the same time as me (2014-2015?) and had plans to live on the island full time. Then last year 2019 planned to live there for 6 months or so. In my case, I've not manage...

Re: Mortgages

It's a 3 years since I took mine out, so don't know the market now. I went with Sabadell which I'm pretty happy with.

Re: Tourist License

It's certainly worth looking into the criteria for Tourist licences if that is a must have for your new place.

Re: looking to buy a holiday home

Excellent advice from Sue. I'd recommend getting a couple of books (available from Amazon) on buying property in Spain, differences to UK, etc. Will pay for themselves many times over if they give you just one useful idea! I'd second Sue's recommendation of CLM Abogados. Toni (of CLM Abogados) was m...

Re: Advice on waterproofing terraces, and recommend builder on Ciutadella side of the island

Re: Villa Rental Website

There's some quite strong competition I think, from airbnb in particular. Still, perhaps there's a niche for a Menorca specialist.
