PROPERTIES TO REFORM IN SPAIN

Bargain Properties for sale in Spain

There are many Spanish properties all over the country that are for sale and in need of reforming.

The extent of reforming a property can vary from minor cosmetic works, painting and new bathrooms etc to some properties that have been left to ruin, and will need to be completely updated with new electrics, plumbing and even a new Roof.

Renovating properties in Spain can be a very attractive proposition when you consider that’s there is a limited amount of new plots available for new builds as these are determined by the long term town plans.

In some cases, the land alone of derelict or run down properties is worth more than the property being sold.

 

RENOVATING SPANISH PROPERTIES

Planning permission in Spain

In the case of almost all building works, you will need to obtain planning permission and a building license from the town hall.

 

THINGS TO LOOK OUT FOR WHEN CHOOSING PROPERTY TO RENOVATE OR REFORM IN SPAIN

 

  • If you are looking to purchase a rural property to reform, you must check on to which land category that the property falls into. If the property is on Rustic land the legal assumption is that you cannot build so will have to justify the project according to the local and regional regulations.
  • Also, if the building or property is on rustic land then you almost certainly not be able to extend the property. Always check that the previous owners have not extended the property illegally. Compare the square meterage permitted to the square meterage that is there.
  • Check if there are any aesthetic or historic reasons why the local authorities may wish to preserve elements of the building before planning your reform.

 

Building Licenses in Spain

There are two types of building license – 

·     Obra mayor - Building Licence for major works. For example building an extension on the property.

·     Obra menor – Building license for minor works.

Spanish Building Rules and Regulations

Before starting any reform work on a property, check with the local town hall as to their specific building rules and regulations. These can vary from town to town so it is imperative to find out what is relevant, to where you have purchased you new Spanish property.

If you are wishing to extend the square meters on your new property for instance, there are different local urban rules as to how much percentage of the plot you are able to build on.

How much should you pay for a building you wish to renovate?

The calculation is simple….

The value of the completed project, less the total costs of renovation including professional fees, less something for your time and effort.

The resulting figure equals the maximum you should pay for the renovation. This is known as the Residual Valuation.
