Since the UK has left the European Union, British residents can no longer live and work in Spain as they please. For tourists or short-term visitors, nothing has really changed: you can enter Spain without a visa, but you can only stay for 90 days within a 180-day period. However, those who want to spend longer than this in Spain – perhaps for retirement or a permanent move – will need a visa.
Spain has so many different types of places to buy: farmhouses out in the countryside, mountain chalets, beach apartments, city lofts, fishermen’s cottages, villas, urbanisations, golf courses and resort-type developments. There really is something for everyone. We recently looked at property on golf courses, and this week we take a look at life in a resort.
Covid-19 may be preventing us from travelling to Spain right now, but it needn’t stop us buying a home there. Estate agents are doing virtual viewings and video walkthroughs of properties, and lawyers and notaries are all working remotely. Moreover, faced with a potential second summer of lost revenue, some holiday home owners are selling at bargain prices.
If you’re looking for a reasonably priced holiday home – or retirement property – in Spain, the 10 we have selected here are a little special. Property in Spain has never been expensive compared to similar Mediterranean hotspots, but the evidence is that it is particularly affordable right now.
Now you have found your perfect holiday home in Spain, it’s time to sort out the practicalities. This can seem like a daunting task, especially if you don’t know much Spanish. How do you go about setting up utilities? What taxes do you need to pay as a non-resident? What is the easiest way to make friends?
