Hi there

after searching for a long time for an area to buy in Spain after selling my property in La Calla, all roads point to Chincalana. i always knew that Cadiz province was a bit cooler and rained a bit more than other regions of Spain, but.

My main concern is the humidity and dampness that i read about in dispatches.

I really need to understand the severity of both, i have researched weather charts etc but none explain how damp or how rainy it is in this region. Is Colina less humid and dampness ?

I would like to hear from people how it impacts on their lives and propertys or does it have no effect at all.

This is one topic that estate agents and vendors will not offer willinglly.

Morning George,

A very valid question.

My wife and I moved from London 2 years ago to set up our Architectural practice and were in very similar situation.

The problem here in Chiclana is the Humidity. Chiclana is not a desert because of the early morning and late evenings humidity. Although It is the life line for the natural parks in and around Chiclana, but is detrimental to the properties, especially in conjunction with the poor construction practices here in the south of Spain. 99% of the time, properties built before 2000 do not have insulation, cavity construction or robust water proofing details, leading to the majority of properties during the winters months plaqued with moisture and dampness issues. The majority of our Conditions Reports services is finding our Clients reliable solutions to mitigate these problems to their existing properties.

My wife and I , as part of our Architectural services assist many families in recommendations on properties that they are interested in purchasing. For instance we would inspect the property (representing our clients interests) and undertake a Conditions Reports which will give our clients an opinion on the buildings external, internal & services conditions before purchasing.  Furthermore we also offer the service of reviewing the 'planning legality' of the site and property to view independently from the agents, and whether extension would be permitted on the site in the future. These Reports are then often used in the price negotiation process between our Clients & letting agents for the betterment of our clients.

If you would like further information on Chiclana or of our service we offer, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Adrian

thanks for the response, for sure i will be in contact with you when i am ready to purchase. i am a commercial manager QS for large groundworks / civils contractors and have a very good construction knowledge. what i lack is local knowledge and a distinct lack of interest in research and form filling lol.

without sounding rude, you did not really go in to detail regarding the weather. In addition what sort of cost would i be looking at in obtaing the non lucrative visa for my wife and myself, that is having somebody else doing all the running. We could also obtain a spanish passport, would having dual passports negate the need for residency.

Thanks in advance.
