Hello All,

As part of my fact-finding mission regarding Chiclana prior to my relocation, I have been advised that many, many properties (mostly the Detached, stand alone type)  DO NOT HAVE Electricity & Water connections and thus owners have to use Solar Panels and Well Water.....hiow much truth is in this ...who can kindly advise me ?

With Anticipated Thanks

Bill

Morning Bill,

I'm an Architect in Chiclana and can tell you from our experience that is not the case. However in saying that, it depends whether the property is legal/ urbanised or illegal/non urbanised. Chiclana has a rich history of non illegal buildings in and around chiclana, especially during the boom years, that now is not permitted by the planning authority to connect to local services, such as foul. However, in accordance with the Spanish constitution all residents of Spain have the right to electricity and running water and therefore many of the illegal properties have these services but not access to foul waste, road/footpath maintenance and street lighting.

My recommendation to you is to find a property or site that is Legal/Urbanised and investigate torely the advice received from Spanish letting agents, as naturally their interest is soley in the sale of the property/site, whether it be illegal/non-urbanised or not. 

Please email my work email for further information on legal/urbansied site & properties, and furthermore, I can also recommend reputable English based letting agents that we have worked in the past.

Adrian,

Many thanks for the detailed reply to my query...as my intention is to purchase an appealing detached property in/around Chiclana I am compiling facts etc prior to making the trip down from Calahonda where I live now so all information is gratefully received.

My property is For Sale and listed on Idealista but with the relevant deflated movement with the Real Estate market I do not expect much in the way of inquiries this year which provides me with ample time to collect the data I require.

Thanks again for the information and hopefully a beer or golf or both will be in the offing in the not too distant future.

Regards

Bill
