10 ways your Property for Sale can Lose Value

10 ways your Property for Sale can Lose Value

03 04 - 2017

The number of purchases and sales of properties in Spain exceeded 400,000 in 2016. This trend is related to the volume of loans that were signed for such acquisitions, surpassing 280,000 mortgages granted on housing. Both indicators confirm the improving property market in Spain. However, every seller should know that the sale price of a home is not fixed, so it is important to take into account the different reasons that can make a property for sale lose value. 1. Antiquity Spain has a stock of very old properties. This situation has led to new or newly built homes gaining value over the older ones. The preference for unused real estate, the deterioration of the materials or the need for the property to undergo future refurbishments are some of the effects the decision for...

Specialised Landords Insurance in Tenerife

Specialised Landords Insurance in Tenerife

10 03 - 2017

With the exceptional increase in demand for rental properties in Tenerife, there are more and more horror stories emerging of desperate tenants having to rent from greedy and irresponsible landlords. Firstly, we'd like to take this opportunity to express how important it is to have a legally drawn up rental contract for starters which protects BOTH the landord and tenant. Here's one of the stories for example! As stated by Janet Anscombe's website, you can let it out long term under urban letting legislation wherever it is, with a long-term residential contract which are a minimum of one year; Or you can let it out short term as an arrendamiento de temporada (a contract of between one day and one year for a specific purpose other than tourism/holiday) under urban letting...

Why Tenants need Contents Insurance

Why Tenants need Contents Insurance

07 03 - 2017

Here's why it's so dangerous not having contents insurance if you're renting property in Tenerife. For €80 a year - is it really worth the risk? In this case, the tenants had no contents insurance, the land lady had no building insurance and they had no rental contract. The tenants had caused a fire in the apartment which destroyed everything! First of all, we need to take this opportunity to state how important it is that you only rent a property in Tenerife with a contract. (We know how desperate it is at the moment for people to find rental properties in the first place but this is a risk you must not take under any circumstances.) Demand to see the landlord's building insurance policy and make sure you are given a receipt every time you pay your rent. As for your...
