Recently, around 200 British expats have been struggling with issues with their properties in Murcia.
The homes had been built without planning permission and the expats believed they would one day become legal.
However, two decades on the homes are still not considered legal. Working with advisors should help British expats avoid issues.
Marc told Express.co.uk: “Your professional advisors can also advise on the most cost-effective way to buy – whether on your own, with a partner or through a company, for example – and on other matters, such as whether you’ll need a visa to use the property year-round.
“It’s also a good idea to think about currency conversion at an early stage in the process. These kinds of decisions can make a surprising difference to your costs.”
