Because most people's first impression of Spain is the Costa Del Sol, it's easy to get the idea that Spain is just like Britain but with better weather. They often make the mistake of believing that the property market and the process of buying a house is the same.

This can be true on the coast, but once you get inland, you will soon find that things are done very differently, and often the methods have changed little for the last hundred years.

Once that you decide that you want to purchase an inland property in Spain, it is imperitive that you have access to good local knowledge. Spain is a large country, and it's system of local government means that laws can change from one town to the next. We are an estate agency that has grown slowly, and pride ourselves on our local knowledge of properties, prices, planning laws and building regulations. Our property portfolio is wide ranging in both area and type, but we specialise in the area around Cuevas De San Marcos, Iznajar, Rute, and up into the Sierra Subbetica.

If you are considering buying a property in our area, we hope that you would come to us, here in Cuevas De San Marcos. Regardless of this, we have compiled some information about buying rural property that we hope you will find useful, and help steer you clear of any potential pitfalls.

The other thing we firmly believe in, is that you should know who we are and where we are, so that if you require any help at any time you can come round or phone us for assistance. At the end of the day we are going to be neighbours, or just in a nearby village.

Some of the properties are taken online and the details have been supplied by the owners and taken in good faith. The property details are only a guide and are no substitute for a personal visit. It is also recommended that once a sale has been agreed a full inventory of fixtures and fittings should be included in the contract of sale. It is not unusual to think you are getting a fully fitted kitchen only to find it has been removed by the previous onwers. It is your responsibility to instruct your solicitor to request an itemised listing, if you do not do this then you will have no recourse once the sale of the property has been completed.

The information given on our web site is kept up to date as much as possible, but in Spain procedures can change on a daily basis, your solicitor should advise you on the present legislation when purchasing your property.
