Hi,

  We're hoping to buy an apartment once things return to some sort of normality. I've been making a list of possible places offered on the various estate websites but it's hard to judge the various areas. Is there some sort of description of the different apartment blocks?

  The idea is to buy a place that we will rent out July and August with us using it April/May and maybe October. That means we need a place that allows tourist rentals. We're leaning towards the textile buildings because they seem to offer better value and I'm guessing a larger potential rental market. 

  None of the places seem to have solar water heaters. Even if many have large terraces with plenty of space. Is that likely a building rule or just something people haven't bothered with? 

  Thanks for any and all help.

Hi BeachWander, Welcome! You intend renting out your apartment, therefore I recommend you concentrate on complexes between Lopez and Hotel Indalo. I don't know of any complex where there are no rentals allowed. So choosing an apartment complex on that matter is obviated.

When you buy on a complex you will feel obliged to follow the rules of that complex even the unwritten rules. For example all the outdoor awnings may have to be of the same quality and colour & design. On  terraces with yellow outside awnings you may not be allowed display a red parasol etc. Even the external lighting might be controlled.

For a quiet life just go along with the crowd. Some ( Panama Hat Wearing "gentlemen") might inform you that they don't rent out their apartments, but you can bet your life that they do.

Thanks.

" Lopez and Hotel Indalo"

Is that in Vera Playa or south of it? We're thinking of staying in Vera playa would let us appeal to both people using the textile beach and those not.

It is more than likely a building regulation. If you have apartment with your own private roof solarium then it's probably ok

You may find that google is your best friend!! If you google the name of the urbanisation you will get all sort of reviews via trip advisor, booking.com and so on, often lots of valuable info buried in the reviews and old for sale/rent adverts

Hope this helps

Look at urbanisations in pueblo Laguna, las marinas,or las Buganvilas.   Central to bars, restaurants and public transport.  Some have garages some not.  As the the  previous person said google the areas.

Thanks everyone.

Google news found an old report of flooding years ago down  Av. Juan Sebastián Elcano,  . Supposedly some of the ground floor apartments got hit pretty badly. 

Outside of stuff like that I was wondering if any of the buildings had known issues?

This flooding in 2012 was exceptional and alot of houses and businesses were affected.  We've been here 20 years  and its  the first snd only time time its happened.  We do get rainstorms but usually it's roads  in the area i mentioned.  The drains cannot cope but it soon clears.  However i do believe roads  further down the playa near to Consum get it worse.   Look at Calle Conchas which is a little higher up.  Lots of apartments there.  Also Juan in Fincas Vera Playa might be able to help he speaks good English.
