Hi everyone. We currently have a property in Tenerife. We are thinking of selling and buying in vinuela area. Is there still a problem with illegal builds. We are thinking of a 3 bed villa. Is it a good idea to buy a resale property rather than a new build. This is the beginning of our search for info on the area. Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Hi. My wife and I recently bought a villa over looking lake Vinuela and it is a beautiful area. I would highly recommend Essential Properties agents. They are based in Torre del Mar and proved very helpful. They could advise you

Good luck.

Thanks for your reply. Is your property for sale with an agent. If so can you send me the link. I would like to see more pics and details and price.

Hello Rh53,

The short answer to your question is yes there are hundreds of properties that are illegal, the explanation is complicated and the government is trying (not very hard) to sort this out. Always use a Spanish Lawyer (probably better out of the immediate area) and do not consider a property where the agency or vendor says they will obtain an AFO to make the property legal for you. It does not make the property legal it only recognizes that the property is there it does not legalise the property.

Take care with this

regards Bill

Yes it s regularisation what means not illegal anymore ,but not legalised ( yet) .

There are 50.000 houses in Axarquia says SUN newspaper. 

An Englishman in Competa stoel me 10.000 euro to not fix it while local  arcihitect  only charges 1500 tot dame job,well doen.

Hi different48. Please be aware that an AFO does not mean the property is Legal. It is still illegal but recognised. Should the Junta de Andalucia decide to issue a penalty fine in the future  you have to pay it.  Regards Bill
