Hola,

Good Luck and all the best for your move, there is lots of good advice on this and other forums.

My top tip is Research, Research and yet more Research! 

In La Alfoquia near Arboleas there is a Shop/business called C.A.T.S., the ladies in there are a mind of information. They are reasonably priced and have great feedback on many forums. My wife and I have used them on occasions.

There are lots of helpful guys on here too, try and be specific about your question... Google is brilliant as a 1st port of call and when you have exhausted that, they can help you narrow down your choices.

Saludos & Feliz Navidad!

Warren & Amanda

Remember Brexit though. Don't want to put a dampener on it but you may have left it too late! Hope not but good luck.

Do not buy in Arboleas until you're the property is fully legal.  Know what an AFO means and try renting first to check out the different areas some are nearer the village than others.  You will need a car, no public transport in that area.  Make sure you have health cover, Brexit might affect that.  Good luck you'll need it.

Firstly, welcome. My better half and I will be arriving in Arboleas in the new year. So, we'll have a 6 month start on you and hopefully, will be able to relate useful info to you.

So far, the biggest amount of grief has been the glacial speed that the UK conveyancing system moves at.

We will be exchanging contracts on our UK home within a week or so, and then we'll see how the Spanish side works.

On a general note, I have posted a few questions on this forum and have been greatly impressed with the willingness of these good people to offer advice. Lastly, there's no such thing as a daft question. If we all knew everything, how boring would we be?

Good Luck and best wishes. Lee

Make sure you bring all your furniture it’s very expensive here we arrive in October sold most of our furniture at home and know it’s costing a future to replace it
