New law about renting
Monday, 07 March 2016

There is a new law in Andalucia which concerns all those that rent their properties for holiday rentals. The ChiFRA solicitors Temple Cambria have supplied us with an article to clarify the requirements of the new law. Should you have any queries, please contact Temple Cambria directly by clicking on the link on the left hand side of this page.

PGOU Plan on display
Sunday, 28 February 2016

From Wednesday 2nd March the new PGOU town plan will be on display; I advise everyone to go down and have a check of their property. In theory, this town plan is exactly the same as the previous display and the only differences are in the "background documents" that are now needed to support this town plan environmentally.

 However, as always, you need to make sure no one has "slipped up" and made an unfortunate change to your area. The Ayuntamiento staff will be on hand to give advice, but i doubt they speak English so take along an interpreter if required.

Latest from Blevins
Tuesday, 01 March 2016

There are two new articles from Blevins Franks this month; the first is on the dreaded form 720 and apart from telling you about what you have to declare, it offers very good advice on how to minimise your tax liability, both in Spain and the UK.

The second article is about inheritance tax and once more gives you information on what to do if you inhereit from someone living in Spain and how to minimise problems for those who inherit your wealth.  

I should perhaps add that my broken arm is now healed and I am back to my usual self.    

To read  either of these articles just click on the Blevins Franks logo at the top of the page.

Marbella PGOU annulled
Wednesday, 11 November 2015

You may have read that the Supreme Court has annulled the Marbella PGOU town plan and 16,500 properties have become illegal again. Through the efforts of AUAN the Almanzora Valley ex-pats association, these properties shouldn’t have any worries about demolition as article 108.3 was changed by AUAN to guarantee to give compensation before demolition.

New Blevins Franks Articles
Tuesday, 13 October 2015

Blevins Franks have added two more articles on the current financial situation. The first

To ‘QROPS Or Not To QROPS’? gives more information on QROPS and what you should do if you have one or are considering buying in to a scheme.

The second article Are You Ready For The New Automatic Exchange Of Information? concerns new law where tax authorities automatically will receive infomation about your tax affairs from other countries, and what to do if you have any concerns. 

Both articles make interesting reading

Spanish Senate Approval
Friday, 26 June 2015

Spanish Senate approves combined Ex-pat association’s amendment to contentious administrative law (article 108.3 of the LRJCA)

Once more people living in fear of demolition have been thrown a lifeline in that if they received building permission for their house, which was subsequently revoked, then their house cannot be demolished until compensation has been paid.

This goes hand in hand with the change made to the criminal code approved by the senate in March 2015. There is still much to be done to legalise our houses, but these two actions should put member’s minds more at ease.

Our thanks must go to AUAN & SOHA whose members have paid for these important amendments to Spanish law in order to protect their members. In the latest amendment they were joined by Spanish associations from Cantabria and Valencia.
