Rural Property in Spain

Rural Property in Spain

Foreign investors are increasingly interested in buying a rural property in Spain, with land upon which the new owners will be able to not only farm, but also enjoy the peace and tranquillity that nature provides.

However, often properties located on land that has been declared to be rural, are properties that are not inscribed in the land registry, or are in such poor condition that their refurbishment is essential to obtain a certificate of occupancy. An important question therefore arises: how should a prospective investor approach such properties?

The first step will be to speak with a lawyer who can advise you of the legal status of the property. The lawyer will obtain a report from an architect which will specify whether, according to local by-laws and planning regulations, there is any real possibility that the Town Hall will concede a works licence to permit the rebuilding of the property (in case this is needed).

Rehabilitation Licence

In the normal course of events, if there is already a property built on the land in question, even if it has to be completely refurbished, the Town Hall typically will grant a licence to “rehabilitate” the property, always taking into account that there are certain rules that have to be followed, such as, for example, not building more than one or two floors high, or related to the maximum square metres that the property can have.

What is certainly not advisable is to buy a land in a rural area where there’s never been any property located.

This is because Town Halls base their decisions to grant (or not to grant) planning permission on the fact that there is an existing property located on the land that the investor wishes to buy.

So, once a favourable report with respect to the property is obtained from the architect, it is then safe to buy the rural property (bearing in mind that unfortunately no-one can 100% guarantee that the Town Hall will give the licence to refurbish the property).

At the same time as carrying-out the purchase, and in a simultaneous operation before a Notary Public, we can, with the report of the architect, make a New Build Declaration (declaración de obra nueva), so the Notary would write in the deeds that in the land there’s a house, and then would send it to the property Register so the house would be legally registered. Once acquired, the new owners may initiate steps for reform.

Rural property in Spain for Tourism business

Beyond the wish (some may say dream) of having your residence in a rural property in Spain, some expats are willing to reform the property with tourist accommodation in mind: if this is your point, there is a recommended service for you: the Tourism License application. Feel free to take a look!

However, having a complete overview on the whole process of purchasing property is an advantage: this said we offer you as well another great time & money saver: our up-to-date guide for Buying Property in Spain: a 5 to 10 minutes lecture that will save you a lot of trouble.

    Chris Horne, Valencia


    Francisca is a highly professional and friendly lawyer based just outside of Valencia city that helped my wife and I purchase our property.


    Her English is excellent and her ability to communicate the Spanish legal requirements for a foreigner to purchase property in a clear and concise way is exceptional.


    I would have no hesitation in approaching her for other legal services myself and would recommend her to anyone.

    John Hipper, Zaragoza

    Francisco was recommended to me by friends in Spain after they had a very positive experience with him. He was an excellent contact for me while I was in the process of buying a house in Spain.


    It was an overwhelming experience buying from Canada, particularly because of the language barrier and the time difference, but Francisco did a fantastic job of explaining to me everything about the forms, taxes and the local processes.


    He was helpful, friendly and informative. When I arrived in Spain to complete the purchase, I felt much more confident knowing that I had his advice and assistance, he even offered to help me fix a problem with my bank accounts when I didn't understand what was happening (language).


    I would have no hesitation using his services again and highly recommend him to anyone in need of his assistance. I was 100% happy.

    Inma was extremely good at reassuring me with my anxieties regarding buying a property abroad. From the first point of contact I felt she was very trustworthy and this continued all the way to point of signing and beyond.


    I sent her so many emails with all my questions and she answered each one in good time and professionally. She was always on the end of the phone if I needed her and her English and patience was excellent! I would highly recommend this lawyer. We found her independently through Advocate Abroad and will absolutely use her services again!

    Great communication with Rosa and good advice around what can be a potentially complicated property market on Mallorca.


    I had no idea about the importance of a cedula de habitabilidad and how difficult it can be getting water and electricity connected with out one.

    Our experience of estate agents on the island is not great but thankfully Rosa has kept us right through out our property search and in obtaining our NIE numbers. We are very grateful for her help.

    The professional's responsiveness to my queries (of which there were many), her explanations and clarification of issues and her ability to come up with concrete solutions when obstacles arose, all in a timely manner (despite time differences) were a credit to her and to your company.

  • Leigh Hossbach
    Leigh Hossbach, Oviedo

    I would wholly recommend Miguel to anybody contemplating a house purchase in the Asturias area of Spain. His pricing was competitive and adapted to my particular requirements.


    He consulted with other professionals (including the council) to help determine the expansion and future building possibilities of the land. He also undertook the necessary checks to establish there was no outstanding debt tied to the property.


    Compared to UK solicitors Miguel was very much more approachable and would always respond to my queries and deliver frequent progress reports at any time of the day including weekends.


    Given the complexity of the Spanish notary system it is essential you have a local solicitor who knows all the variations associated with the Asturian conveyancing system to guide you towards a successful outcome.


    Even though I had a reasonable understanding of Spanish Miguel's excellent written and spoken English proved invaluable at all stages of the conveyancing process in particular the final signing of the deeds. Well done Miguel and many thanks for all your help!

    Juan was extremely helpful during every part of the purchase. As I was buying an older property there were slight complications but Juan explained every issue and managed to work through the difficulties with supreme efficiency.


    Also there was a ridiculous situation with my Spanish bank account where I could not access the money even though it was in the account. Thankfully I had given Juan power of attorney and he managed to sort-out the problem.


    He went above and beyond the call of duty and I am very grateful for all his help. I would strongly recommend him to anyone looking to buy in the Almeria region.

    Rosa was extremely professional and helpful and made the process of buying a property from the UK very simple.


    Not only did she walk us through the Spanish legalities of the purchase but she also helped us get our new home set up with utilities, furniture and even a car purchase. Rosa did everything so that when we arrived we could move straight in.


    Without Rosa’s help it would have taken us months and months to get through the legal system. I would highly recommend her services.

    Jose was very helpful and kept us well informed and looked after our interests on the actual exchange day rather than being bullied by the vendors legal solicitor.


    Considering it was all done from a distance and via email the transactions all went very smoothly thanks to Jose.

    My wife and I are very pleased with the services we received when we acquired an apartment near Alicante.


    We have also been assisted in resolving practical issues regarding the take over of our apartment. We definitely see that we have received great value for money.


    I definitely recommend José A., and we will seek his advise again if needed.

    Jose Antonio always got back to us promptly and was very good at explaining the legal terms so that we could fully grasp the implications of any Court processes.


    He was pragmatic and although positive, kept us informed of possible outcomes both positive and negative. This enabled us to make informed decisions at all times. At all times, I felt that Jose Antonio had confidence in his own ability and was fully competent, without being arrogant.

    We bought a flat near El Campello and Jose Antonio made it stress free and straightforward. I could not recommend him more highly. The whole process of purchasing a property in Spain was very clearly explained alongside different options we would have at each stage.


    Jose Antonio always responded within a day and also prompted us when he needed information. He was always able to fit in around our schedule when we were in Spain for short visits. I thought the price was good value.

    Beatriz was very understanding about what type of service we were looking for. This was our first purchase in Spain and we relied heavily on Beatriz to help us make the right decisions.


    She not only provided vital details regarding the law in Spain but also helped us with dealing with the Estate Agent and the process. Her local knowledge was also excellent and helped us to see the true value of our purchase.

    Rosa was efficient, straightforward, hard working and a pleasure to deal with.

    We were extremely happy with the way she acted for us both at the time of our purchase and since on an on-going basis.


    She was professional, highly responsive and careful in her dealings with us. Her grasp of English is fine, anything it lacks is made up for by her enthusiasm and helpfulness. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.
