Buying in Southern Spain
Agents are now legally obliged to only sell legal properties. So you can buy in this area knowing that you are buying a legal property. However, you should still make sure yourself and check with the local town hall that the property you want to purchase is indeed fully legal. A good solicitor will also make these checks.
Prospective buyers should ensure that they have a good solicitor. That they themselves do some research on the area and the property. Speak to local expats that have purchased here.
