    There is a Halifax Bank in Puerto de Mazarron, next door to Mercadona. The assistant manager is English. I don’t know how competitive they are mortgage wise etc but at least you can make enquiries without any language barriers.

    As far as a solicitor is concerned I would have to say no. I have yet to find a local lawyer I would recommend (but several I would avoid like the plague!). Another board – can’t remember which one – mentioned a ‘cartel’ in the area but that is not my own comment. My advice would be to look for a lawyer slightly out of the area.

    You do need to be very, very careful in the Mazarron area. There is a distinct lack of Habitation Certificates – also called Licences of First Occupation – in some newer developments. There are also some problems with residential homes built on land designated for tourist use.

    Are you interested in any particular development? I could probably give you some relevant links.

    Yes, you can try the Halifax. I have a mortgage with them they have very competative/innovative products. Unlike the Spanish Banks who wants a 65 year old person to pay off mortgage in 10 years and than take a mortgage free property to heaven with him/her.

    Whislt alive could not pay for a beer etc as the monthly payment to the Bank at current prices of the properties did not leave any money left over.

    Hi Richardsonian49,

    You are very welcome.

    I don’t think you will have any problems at El Alamillo or El Alcolar, lovely position and no issues that I know of.

    If you haven’t already, have a look at this website:
    http://groups.msn.com/PuertodeMazaroonLiving
    (I know the spelling is wrong, its part of the charm)

    The manager of the site owns a house on El Alamillo so there should be plenty of information there. He used to recommend a lawyer in La Manga Club – it might be worth emailing him to check if he is still happy to do so.
