Junta Delays

I have been waiting over a year for a SAFO/DAFO certificate and have been told it could be another year even though all paperwork has been submitted by architect.

SAFO Dafo

After over a year we are still waiting for a SAFO to be granted on a property we are planning to buy..the papers are all with the townhall..the hold up now is because there is a small stream 100m away...and a report has to be done...does anyone know anything about these things?

Re: Antequera

We have had a house in Mallorca and southern France in the past and now thinking of Andalucia, we never visit in the height of summer though..too busy too expensive. The coast near Malaga doesn’t interest us at all, It is over developed and ugly, the beaches are very disappointing mostly.

Re: Almond trees
