Why Use Properties Overseas?

Want to buy a property abroad? How do you ensure you make the right choice?

Whilst the internet can find properties with the attributes you search for, identifying those that are in an area that would suit you is very hit and miss. What looks good on the screen, in reality, is a great disappointment in real life.

Brexit – Changes to the rules on Financial Advice

You take financial advice from the UK but live in Spain, France, Portugal, Cyprus, Malta or another EU country? Regulations are changing. What do you need to think about as full Brexit approaches?

Post Brexit

Reassuringly, even if there is a no-deal Brexit, citizens’ rights for UK nationals legally settled in an EU member state by 31 December 2020 are protected under the UK-EU Withdrawal Agreement. There are no such guarantees, however, in the area of financial services, which could affect whether you can continue to receive UK-based advice and services as an EU resident. 

You need to make sure you check that your financial planning – and your adviser – will stand up to the challenges that Brexit may bring. Here are four key considerations. 

The end of passporting

If you have a good relationship with your UK-based financial adviser, you may understandably wish to continue using them, despite now living in a different country. However, you need to make sure they can legally continue to advise you after the Brexit transition period.

Why Buy A Resale Property?

Many coastal areas in Spain are now mature resorts where building sites in prime locations are limited and expensive. In order to get the property you want in a good location, close to the beach and amenities, resale properties maybe the best or only option. There are other advantages, these include:

  • Can be considerably cheaper to buy ( in some areas new builds command a 30% premium)
  • Able to take possession quickly
  • Less expensive community fees
  • More certainty on running costs
  • No further construction disruption in the area
  • You will know what the area will be like in a few years time

Whilst purchasing a new build provides the opportunity buy a modern fully equipped property and to customise it the way you prefer, the lower cost of resale property can enable you to improve or even renovate to achieve what you want well within a lower budget.

The Value of Menorca

Menorca is the second largest in the group of islands known as the Balearics, with Mallorca being the largest. It has it own distinctive charm with the underdeveloped rugged northern coast, to beautiful bays on the south coast to hop between. The 2 beautiful historical cities of Mahon and Ciutadella hold many treasures to enjoy day after day. You can see and feel the history ooze through the cobbled streets and magnificent open squares.

The island lies roughly 140 miles southeast of Barcelona. Many of the locals use the regular ferry service or flights to Barcelona and Majorca for mega shopping trips etc., like we would use the train in the UK.

The island is very safe and its people welcoming, with a strong cultural heritage very evident today.

Property Value

The choice of properties from coastal holiday apartments and villas to white washed townhouses, historical period properties in Mahon or Ciutadella to rustic Menorcan farmhouses or renovated windmills the choice is very varied and appealing.

The island has not become a victim of over development and sprawling high rise. The interior which is never far away from the coast can be green and tranquil for those wishing to escape to a more peaceful environment.

Property prices offer good value in particular when compared to Mallorca, Ibiza and parts of the Spanish mainland. All reasonable offers will be considered.
