Spanish Town Hall Tax Questions And Answers.
Spanish town hall tax is also known as IBI tax which is similar to council tax in the UK .
The IBI tax is payable each year and can be debited direct from your spanish bank account.
The cost will depend generally on the size of your property, size of your plot and the proximity to services and infrastructure.
It is important when purchasing a property that your lawyer checks that the IBI tax is paid to date as you would inherit the debt if it has not been paid.
As an example of costs based on 2 bed apartment value 150,000 euros the IBI tax may be approximately 300 euros per annum.  
Top Tips When Buying Furniture For Your Spanish Property.
I recommend that you purchase beds that have the storage underneath, a great place to put the extra bed linen, towels, your private belongings if renting out the property. 
Also have a bed that has enough room underneath to put the suitcases.
Always measure up before buying furniture, not great if your furniture takes over your lounge. Furniture packs are fine as long as you are dealing with a reputable company that can advise you on the right sizes.
Single beds with a pull out mattress take up less room than 2 single beds.
Use mirrors to reflect light and make the property living area feel large.
Top Five Tips To Narrow Down Your Property Search.
1- Looking for a property that has good rental appeal, then concentrate on areas that are close to the coast and have amenities open all year. Avoid the ghost towns in the winter. Areas to consider are La Zenia and Villamartin
2- If you prefer a resort with nice views and 24 hour security then a golf resort is the place. Here are some recommendations. La Torre Golf Resort  Mar Menor Golf Resort and Las Colinas Golf And Country Club .
3- Looking for a modern villa or apartment in a very exclusive and award winning resort then Las Colinas Golf and Country Club is the resort to consider.
4- Wanting a good investment return then 
Cartagena City Centre  will provide very good yields of about 8% and with 4 universities and a demand for long term rentals this is a place to consider.
5 Seaviews and close to an airport then Gran Alacant is ideal as only 10 mintes from Alicante airport and stunning beaches.

Our latest happy clients review from Martin McConway who purchased a villa on the popular Mar Menor Golf Resort, Murcia.
We have just bought our first Villa through Chersun Properties. I am very very happy with the overall approach, knowledge, quick response to queries I had and good advice that I have received. Even after completion of sale, Paul was very helpful with any questions I had and guiding me to the right contacts. I would definitely recommend Chersun to anybody and I would use them again in future. Many thanks again Paul for everything!!

Great news this week as the exchange rate for sterling against the euro increased to 1.14 euros to the pound. There was further good news as analyists are predicting that sterling may continue to get stronger against the euro as more clarity about Brexit becomes available and also with the positive UK economy news. This is all positive for potential buyers of spanish property and also for the many tourists who visit Spain each year.
