These differ significantly in both quality and size, depending on location – some may be tiny studio apartments, while some are spacious on the coastline, or in golfing developments. Under Spanish law, all apartment owners are members of the community of owners, and must abide by the community’s rules and regulations and pay community fees. This is a key piece of information to bear in mind when considering purchasing an apartment.
There are a number of advantages to buying an apartment in Spain, including low maintenance, 24/7 security in some places, communal gardens, pools and other facilities. These apartment blocks will generally be close to local facilities and amenities. The disadvantages could be the possibilities of noisy neighbours, poorly-maintained communities and crowds during the summer months, so it is worth viewing these properties at different times of the year to be able to make an informed decision on how the lifestyle will suit your needs.
