There are beautiful places to live in the world and Mijas for me personally is one of the top places to live. It is not hard to understand why if you have ever visited the Costa del sol, from the stunning sandy beaches to a Spanish white village nestled in the mountain that is full of charm. Having an expat community of all nationalities living there both full time and part time, with the warmer all year round climates, this offers people a very good work life balance the provide the most laid back lifestyle.
We often get asked by foreigners about the buying process in Spain and for us the most simple answer is that buying a property in Spain is relatively uncomplicated, as the country actively encourages investment from outside the country into the property market. You will need a Spanish NIE, which is a Spanish identification number that provides you with a personal, unique and exclusive number to you only. The NIE may be applied for in person or through an authorized representative to delegations and sub-delegation of government. It is also possible to process this documentation from abroad.
However, with our British clients there is also the uncertainty regarding the final Brexit agreement, this is causing some British clients to delay their property purchase until it becomes clear exactly what deal will be made. Although it’s unlikely that the current situations around mortgage lending or property rights are unlikely to change, there are question marks about future healthcare provision and pensions. When you find your dream home or investment, you will undoubtedly have to transfers money from your country to Spain and if it’s not euro to euro account then shop around. By using a company that specialise in international money transfers will save you a significant amount of money. Making the move to Spain does not have to be a complex process. By finding an agent who cares and follows the correct process, you will be enjoying the sunny climate without losing any sleep.
