Reply To: Capital Gains Tax for a nave


I was down in Chiclana the other week, with a bloke clutching loads of estate agent window cards picturing pretty 3 bed bungalows for €180,000. What wasn’t pictured was the aluminium warehouse on one side and the gypsy camp on the other. The blokes comment on the area was “It’s ******* ****, isn’t it?”, and I had to agree.

You’ll find the locals have always built naves cunningly disguised as 3 bed villas, but that’s why the Junta are now cracking down – they’ve taken over from the local council so all the old games are coming to a halt. These days the locals will be in the same boat as you are. If you build anything other than the Junta will allow there, I’d say you run the risk of them demolishing it.
