There are 1000’s of illegal houses in the area and many in Albox.

Estate agents and lawyers will lie through their teeth telling you it is legal when it is clearly not.

Simple rule is avoid any house built post 1975 as most will never be 100% legal.

Use a good solicitor. We use Maria Perez at Bouganvilla Roundabout near Puerto Rey. She saved us from buying an illegal villa that the Estate agents said was fully legal with all relevant paperwork. It had no paperwork at all. Lesson learnt.

Regards and good luck

Clover built our house under a previous name “Procoal”. All illegal. Please check first but don’t be afraid as if it’s a bargain then it’s a bargain. They aren’t knocking any homes down now and you could get an AFO which regularises it. Do your research is the answer. Miguel Rodriguez is a local solicitor who is very helpful and speaks perfect English. John

If it's too good then it probably isn't...Many rogues down here looking to live off other people's hard earned money.The place is probably illegal and as said before use a good abogado before parting with any money.Not only houses but cars,motorcycles etc.....many crooks about unfortunately.They seem attracted to this part of Spain....☹️🇪🇸🇬🇧

Hi just a little advice.

Make sure all paperwork is correct.my solicitor when we bought our house  found the deeds were not correct and seller had to sort out before we bought at her expence of 5000.00 euros. Plus if on septic tank make sure you reqyire a certificate called an AFO. Otherwise you will end up paying this yourself when selling another 6000.00 euros. I ended up agreeing to pay half of this othervise buyer was foing to pull out. Another thing is to make sure any pool on the property is legal.
