Thanks Sid,

I am not however familiar with the word "catastral", however doing the sums, if I buy a place for EUR 150,000 say, my tax will be EUR 750 ?
(with no offsets)

Thanks Sid,

I supose it is that tax, i.e on non residents, but I was led to believe it was a property tax (as opposed to income tax) and that having some mortgage you could offset some of the charge.

Does anyone know what rate is charged for non residents property ?

Another slant on mortgages..

Having a choice, is it best to have some kind of mortgage ?.

I believe you can offset a mortgage against an annual tax on property in Spain. Is this true ?

Colinm,

I have rented out a place in Lincoln in the UK for 6 years, and I have only been in the county twice in my life.

I guess us Clare people are a bit more relaxed about these things.

Air conditioning I understand, but would anyone put central heating in place in a new build say 30 miles inland. Would it be needed in Dec / Jan / Feb ?

Would it be better to just plug-in a stand alone radiator ?. In the same vein, any need for a fireplace ?

Gyms

Can anyone tell me what membership of a typical gym costs in Spain ?. How would it compare to my £750 a year here in a town in Hampshire say.

I find Spanish wine compares favourably with a Welsh claret.

Yes Katy, But not having access to EUROS, you have to get them from somewhere when you need to make stage payments. It so happens Mercers put some information on HIFX in their packs. Working for one of the big uk clearing banks (whom HIFX actually bank with ), I could match any rate I get from HIFX,...

Yes I liked Lebrija and Jerez.

Where are you on the Mercers plan ? and how does the market order with HIFX work ?, i.e have you had your 10% odd contract, and how do you time it with HIXF ?.

I did try and look up accomodation in Lebriza, but Cadiz appeared to come up every time.

Afraid so......

Was out there from Friday 17th March until the Sunday. Outside of the Reservation contract, I have not seen anything yet, but HIFX are keen to do business for the Euros I will need, can't get too excited about FX movements though.
