Is Brexit Stopping Buyers From The UK
 
This is a question that gets asked many times by prospective buyers and we are happy to confirm that the ongoing brexit talks are not putting off UK buyers.
 
The spanish economy relies heavily on tourism and property taxes therefore the Spanish government are unlikely to bite the hand that feeds them and we do not envisage taxes to increase for non EU buyers. 
 
There are plenty of non EU buyers such as the Swedish and Swiss who are enjoyng the spanish lifestyle without additional costs because their countries are not in the EU. Why wait live your dream now and for more information about buying property in Spain contact us now enquiries@chersun.com
 
 
How Much Is Annual Town Hall Tax In Spain.
 
The annual town hall tax or IBI in Spain will depend upon the size of the property and also the location. The town hall tax is payable for the services that the town hall provides such as rubbish collection, street lighting and public amenities.
 
Approximate annual costs
 
2 bed apartment in spanish town 250 euros
2 bed apartment in golf resort     500 euros
3 bed villa in spanish town           450 euros
3 bed villa in golf resort               750 euros
 
These are approximate costs and you always find that golf resort properties have more expensive town hall tax than the local towns. The tax is a lot cheaper than the UK with the rubbish collection collected most days.

Important Tips When You Are On A Viewing Trip. 
 
Ask plenty of questions as knowledge is best shared and most estate agents are more than happy to share their experiences and provide you the answers to your questions.
 
If you do not like an area or property as soon as you arrive let the agent know as you do not want to waste your time or the Estate Agents time.
 
Be honest, it is important that you are upfront with the agent as this will make it easier for the Agent to find your ideal property if you provide them with the correct criteria and budget.
 
Finally you have to have complete confidence in your Estate Agent is this is not the case then ask to be dropped off at your hotel and give us at Chersun a call.

Hugh Murray Viewings of Costa Calida properties
 
Time spent with Paul Cherry from Chersun is an investment in itself. From the first point of contact following our email enquiry, through to our visit to the Murcia area, where Paul chauffeured us from Villa to Villa, Paul imparted selflessly the most useful information on area and property type you could hope for. All of this was done without any pressurised sales pitch. We cannot thank Paul and all at Chersun for their advice, dedication and also friendship they gave during our purchase journey
