Thanks again, you've already given valuable advice.
I'm also using said agents and from the outside they certainly give the idyllic impression.
This will be my first property ever and I plan to move there permanently. I was expecting a modern system of handling issues like planning permissions etc, but from this forum I have already learnt to expect otherwise.
It will also be my first time in Spain. As such, could you advise me on what the step-by-step procedure of buying and renovating a finca will be, please? Sort of like a how-to, A-Z, from looking at properties on the website to sitting in the renovated casita of your own finca.
Just some simple bullet points will be a great help. The reason I ask is that from the estate agent website's rhetoric it sounds like a smooth and straight forward process they handle. But already from your having to deal with the Ayuntamiento it's clear there are other things to consider.
Your help is this matter is much appreciated.
