    Have you run any articles about buying property in Spain, and any items to research. Also do you have a forum page for asking questions of other people buying in Spain.

    I am in the opening sequences of buying a property in the Alora area, but want to be sure that the price reflects a true picture of present & future values relative to the Eurozone difficulties. I don’t want to buy the place & then find that it’s value has halved overnight following a potential collapse of the € or a 2 tier €system being adopted between the north european & med countries. My fear is based on my wife surviving me, deciding that she needs to return to the UK after my death, then finding that she can’t afford to because of our property value halving for example. Any clues where I can get some guidance on this possible eventuality?

    Ian, nobody has a crystal ball. My guess / hope is that Spain will still be in the Euro in 10 yrs time, but I wouldn’t want to bet on it. If you are worried consider renting instead of buying.
