Moving to Camposol...

I am thinking of selling up in the UK and buying a small property in Camposol. I speak Spanish and already have my NIE from living in Tenerife some years ago. I'm interested to know what costs there are once you have bought a property; ie: maintance, communal fees, ground rent, basura charges etc. Ideally I'd like to be near shops or at least within a short walk from them. Also I would like to know about work possibilities in the area. I have heard, read on the internet, horror stories about Camposol so any information would be greatly received.

Hi Summer, 

most importantly be very aware on the timing of selling up and moving to Spain, if you time it wrong your could be liable to Capital Gains in Spain for your UK home sale 

Maintenance is what it is and what you make of it, there are currently no plans for community fees either 

you need a car/transport which once you have a car they are not expensive to run/insure etc 

no ground rent 

IBI (Council tax is a fraction of the cost compare to the UK) ours was €190 last year 

Camposol is no different to anywhere else in Europe, it has a great community and is quite safe, as in anywhere you always need to ensure that you are security conscious, we love it and have had no trouble in the 2 years we have been on D  

working in Spain you would need to register for Tax etc and if working for an employer you would need them to also provide you with documentation for your working visa 

I would advise to have an accountant so as you can navigate the tax system in the most cost effective manner 

I hope this helps 

Lee

Thank you Lee. All that information has been very helpful. After a lot of research I have decided I am going to rent in Camposol for a few weeks to get a feel for the area, before selling up here in the UK.

Definitely the best way to start, I wish you well in your search
