My wife and I are considering buying an appartment on Hacienda Requelme where we stayed in 2019. We were wondering what the current status is of the urbanisation as we believe the facilities have been closed and possibly under new management. Is it being maintained. We appreciate there are monthly charges for maintenance. What does that cover. Are the properties leasehold or freehold. Who is responsible in the event of structural repairs that may be required to the buildings roofs etc in the event of a problem. Any advice concerning English seeking lawyer and possibly surveyor would be helpful. Thanks appreciate several questions raised. Hopefully still a pleasant place to spend 90 days.

Hi, I think you would be best speaking with some of the local estate agents. Whilst they will try to sell you something they are usually very knowledgeable about each community. HR is a lovely resort but I do know things are closed such as the clubhouse and golf. It’s owner/self managed to keep community fees lower but this often comes at a cost. I know they do include some services such as internet etc. I would also advise you to look at other golf course. I own property on La Torre just down the road. I’ve worked all over the different resorts and find there’s much more choice on offer. It does depend on what your after. Some more good advice is to join the local face book groups where you can get loads of information. In terms of solicitors I can recommend LS. They are based in LA and La Torre. Very good and all speak excellent English. I’d also recommend you google selling sunset Murcia and talk to Iain Mitchell. He’s a top guy and will tell you the full story on each of the resorts. Tell me Mark mentioned him 😂. Good luck.

Good advice from Fixit. We rented on HR for a couple of years up until January whilst deciding whether to buy or not. It is now self managed (after ending the management contract to save money) and now there seems to be a bit of a civil war going on with very little trust of the new management group. HR has become noticeably cheaper and has an increasingly run down feel as on-site facilities are shutdown and cost saving is evident everywhere. Some of these resorts fail and fall into disrepair (see UGC). The HR Facebook group is littered with stories telling how the community feel has degraded and it is no longer a very nice place. La Torre and Mar-Menor golf resorts have far more facilities and still feel vibrant.

if you are set on HR, perhaps rent for a couple of seasons to see if the decline is terminal.
