New Andalucian Property Legislation aims to legalize almost 300.000 buildings
Almost 300.000 illegal buildings in Andalucia are about to be regularized as the New Andalucian Property Legislation comes into effect this month.
The decree, which affects all of Andalucia, aims to legalise many of the buildings constructed on rural land. Nevertheless this still leaves a large number of properties that for one reason or another will not qualify for the legalisation process.
This has attracted the attention of potential clients from Scandinavian countries looking to buy property in the Axarquia area, especially around La Viñuela reservoir, according to a report in local Spanish daily La Opinión de Malaga.
"The solution is not a decree or the changes to the Andalucian Urban Development Law, what we need is change in regards to law and the Andalucian Territorial Planning Project which rules the development of the Axarquia".- said estate agent Ignacio Herrera to La Opinión.
In fact, many householders in Andalucia are in a tough situation as they may have to pay hundred thousand euro fines due to illegal construction.
Should it be done differently, one thing is clear, legal and straightforward rules lead to home buyers trust.
