Will the Euro zone collapse, the Greek Debt, these problems were not the main focus for British buyers at last weekend’s A Place in the Sun Live.

Temperatures soared over Britain so you would think the best Place in the Sun would be the garden. Happily for us at Basico Homes pre ticket sales were at 10,000 UP a 100% from the 5,000 ESTIMATE!!

50% more Britsh Buyers registered with us than in the event in London in March. They were looking for Spanish repossessed property at all levels from €60,000 to €400,000.

We have 19 buyers making appointments to view in October alone!

Spanish Panel of Experts I was delighted to be invited to sit on the Panel of experts that convened at 12:00 noon each day to field questions with A Place in the Sun Editor Liz Rawlinson as Chair. We shared the panel with a Specialist Lawyer and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) representative in the Consulate in Malaga, Stephen Jones.


Stephen was delighted to see that Basico were promoting the FCO website

I had a real sense of achievement when Stephen publically congratulated Basico Homes on having taken this initiative as part of our own “Know Before You Go” campaign as the FCO call their advice on “Going to Live Abroad” www.fco.gov.uk we will publish more on this in future blogs along with the Questions and Answers from the sessions.

Confidence has returned? If the visitor numbers and the Spanish Property Buyers registering with us are a guide! There is no question that there is a lot to choose from but when we explained that we work for some of Spain’s major Banks and Cajas selling their new build repossessed apartments and houses. Our potential Spanish property buyers wanted to know more.

Fear of Losing Your Money –seemed the biggest concern and who could blame these questions as we hear so many stories about No Planning Permission and developers going Bust!

Banks want to know everything – You will know this if you have ever had a mortgage from a Bank or borrowed to build a property, the Bank will want you and your solicitor to provide all the documentation regarding , Planning Permission, Building Regulations Certificates and of course Title Deeds . If you can’t provide these you don’t get the money it is that simple. Well that is precisely the same in Spain, long before these apartments and houses have been repossessed or even built the Bank would have examined all these necessary documents and lent the money to the developer.

So What! Well when you buy direct from a Bank a repossessed Apartment or House the Title Deeds, Planning Permission and Building Permits will have been checked and more importantly available for your independent solicitor to check for you, that way you buy what you think you are buying and not a headache!

So thank you to those that attended A place in the Sun Live and especially those who spent time to visit us! Happy property Hunting

Do you dream about owning Your own Home in Spain only to worry about how that Dream might turn into a Nightmare?

-Worried about the Title Deeds being in order?

-Worried about whether the dream home has planning permission?

-Worried about the developer going Bankrupt and the property never being finished or worse still losing all your hard earned savings?

These fears are completely justified and rational after all the hard work to build up your savings to buy a Home in Spain you certainly don’t want to become a victim of an ill funded developer and an unscrupulous salesman,, you only have to read the papers to see those whose dreams have turned to nightmares as they struggle to get their money back and live with the consequences of a dream turned to a nightmare! After all these are people like you and me. People wanting to enjoy a new lifestyle in the sun. Basically they trusted the wrong people and have paid dearly

So what is the solution to this dilemma and how to find it?

One option is to keep the money in the bank and forget the dream. Certainly a clear and precise solution but one that is never going to lead to living the dream either..

So have the dream without the potential for the nightmare well we at Basico Homes see it as simple transparency.

As one of Spain’s fastest growing and leading experts in Direct Bank Sales our clients are all major Spanish Banks and Cajas   (A Caja is a Spanish Savings Bank) we only sell for the Banks and that benefits you in a number of ways

Remember the worries, Title Deeds, Planning Permission, Getting what you paid for and being able to enjoy it.

Well I am sure you know if you have tried to borrow money from a bank secured against a property you know what I mean. The Bank wants your solicitor to tell all about the property, and that includes: Clear Title Deeds, Planning Permission and any aspects that would prevent the bank getting its money back should the loan default

Well that is what happens in Spain too, so when a property is repossessed by a Bank or Caja you know that the lending institution has done extensive due diligence before lending its money to the developer. It is that due diligence by the Bank or Caja that as a Spanish Property Buyer you can rely on when you buy a property Direct from a Spanish Bank via Basico Homes..

Last year we sold 592 properties to Spanish Home Owners people like you and me. Now we are offering this opportunity to you so if you have any questions about buying in Spain Direct from a bank get in touch with me Robert Evans and live the dream not the nightmare!

I Hope to Meet You in Person at A Place in the Sun Live at the N.E.C. Birmingham Friday 30th September to Sunday 2nd October Please click here FOR FREE E-Tickets
