Living as a holiday in Spain is never complete without a visit to some of the country’s more popular and desirable places to live.
We present some exclusive luxury villas in Spain which include a wide range of rental opportunities to guarantee you a perfect holiday.
Living on any of the main beaches in Spain, such as the Costa del Sol, Costa Blanca and Costa de la Luz, is an ultimate way to ensure you have a considerably enjoyable and relaxed holiday every time you choose to stay there. You can also easily charter yachts and hire crew from Palme de Mallorca.
However, the Costa del Sol is considered by many to be the most desirable area to live on and so this is where most of the rental properties are heavily marketed.
So, comfortably, you will be able to choose from a large variety of dream villa locations and spectacular beachfront locations. For example, after a hard day in the strong sun, simply take a long rest and stroll along the beach, balcony or front veranda for some refreshing sunshine. Follow this route and see how your mood has been improved and so your holiday is less likely to be hampered with disappointment and complaints!
Once you have committed to purchasing a property you will need time to make the approach to the property owner. This will include a visit to the property, a walk around the plot, and possibly an informal chat as well. Although you should not sign a commitment to any property or rent there if you are not 100% sure, you can still make the approach to the owner.
Avoid approaching the owner in the evening, as this will prevent you from seeing anything on the property that is of interest, and this could deter you from putting in an official application. Try to make an appointment via email, or over the phone. The process will show you whether the developer has respected the ‘dentials’ necessary, and if not, will alert the owner that you cannot respect his property!
The next step will be to make some kind of enquiry regarding your budget, location of choice and a time frame for the rental period. The purpose of this enquiry is the owner may be prepared to accept you as their tenant, or not.
The purpose of readying your application should be to have a look around the property without being invasive. It may be good to do a ‘pre-screening’ of the property, a quick tour around the plot, whilst leaving the COP paper for the owner to have a look through. This will open your eyes in regards to firstly what the land is like; secondly would allow them to see what they would expect, would they not be suspicious of you?
The surveyor will need to be neutral and you should talk to your application team, as they will be the best people to do this. Get to know as much as you can about the land, and try to see what should be done with the plot in mind. For example, you may be happy the land could be experimenting with geothermal, or you may be happy to place solar panels. Either way, this will warn the owner of the potential problems with and over-saturation of the place.
The best way to finalize the purchase or rental of a plot of land is to use a local surveyor. For the price they will charge you will give you a price win, and you know exactly what you are buying. Once the land plot has been purchased of course, the final payment and services are completed. This will include the surveyor, a solicitor, an architect, and even some extra sites that will occur if wall accessibility and other improvements are required with the plot. The process should be evaluated by you, or by a representative, but this is usually done by the surveyor who is to ensure you are paying for the right plot, in the right place and that all costs are properly assessed.
When researching the plots offered for sale and to be sold by the developer it is wise to take advice as to their reputation. You should always engage a well-established agent to guide you through, as this will ensure that you get the best deal possible when it comes to location, size and price. And finally, it is also always wise to try and buy from their preferred mortgage lenders. You are more likely to get your mortgage approved if you have a good credit rating.
