Hopefully useful stuff for (prospective) owners.

Post by Jenny » November 26th, 2005, 5:46 pm

I'm the vice-president of our community and have been concerned to understand better what responsibilities this places on me. I've been trying to track down a translation of the "Ley de Propiedad Horizontal" which is the law which governs how communities are run.

Today I have found a website which seems to offer me more help than could have hoped for and I think would be very useful for anyone contemplating buying property anywhere in Spain. It's called the Foundation Institute of Foreign Property Owners, a non- profit organisation whose website is at http://www.fipe.org

Whilst on the topic of possible house purchase I think I've probably mentioned these books before but think they are worth mentioning again:

Buying a Home in Spain and Living and Working in Spain both by David Hampshire. Understand there's a new edition due out in January.

HTH

Hi Sydney, welcome to the site.

The majority of Brits are dotted around quite evenly, usually living in properties on the coast. However, I would say that one exception is the small town of San Lluis in the South East of the island where I understand that there are quite a few ex-pats.

Personally, I aim to live in the inland town of Alaior. It is steeped in history, has some interesting buildings and shops, and the local people are really friendly and welcoming.

Are you planning to move out there?
Regards,

Young Uncle Bert

The largest Brit community we have come across whilst in Menorca is at Cala en Porter. We met an English couple who ran a bar there, they had been living in the resort for approx 5 years and did not speak any Spanish as everyone in the area spoke English.

This is not for us as we go to Menorca to be in Spain not England.
