Licence of First Occupation

The Olive Press, October, 21. 2019

The Olive Press is a fortnightly English language newspaper directed by Jon Clarke. Voted Spain’s number one expat newspaper and ‘second in the world’, by 27,000 people polled by UK marketing group Tesca. Also dubbed “The best English newspaper in Spain,” according to the UK’s Rough Guide. The Olive Press is the English language newspaper for Spain. Local news, in particular, from the Costa del Sol, Andalucía, Alicante, Murcia and Mallorca, plus national news from around Spain. A campaigning, community newspaper, the Olive Press launched in 2006 and represents the huge and growing expatriate community in Spain – with over 100,000 printed copies monthly, 50,000 visitors a day online we have an estimated readership of more than 500,000 people a month.

The Olive Press has as a distinctive feature from its competitors an editorial line with strong emphasis on investigative journalism, which to my mind is the purest form of journalism. It has no qualms in regularly exposing scammers and boiler rooms along the Spanish coasts.

The Olive Press kindly published one of our articles: Licence of First Occupation.

Spain’s New Mortgage Act stirs up trouble

Spanish Property Insight, September, 21. 2019

Spanish Property Insight is a property information website run by Mark Stücklin (inset photo), author of the Spanish Property Doctor Column in the The Sunday Times (2005-2008), and the book ‘Need to Know: Buying Property in Spain’ published by Collins. SPI is regularly quoted by journalists and the international media as the most authoritative source of independent insider information in English language on the Spanish property market. Its weekly influential newsletter reaches over 50,000 readers, many of which are key players in the industry.

SPI kindly quotes us in one of its recent articles regarding Spain’s new Mortgage Act and the adverse impact it has had in the Spanish mortgage market. As we cared to explain in detail in our June article, this well-meaning law is flawed and overprotective, and has in fact ‘thrown a spanner in the works’ effectively delivering a great blow to the mortgage market, when it was flourishing again.

Excessive hand-holding of borrowers (and consumers) backfires when common sense is idly cast aside by lawmakers: link to SPI article.
