I spoke to Mayor Navarro and he was confident work would start imminently.  That was two years ago!

General Discussion / Re: Golden Visa
« Last post by Tanemera on February 21, 2021 »
I have been looking at this for some time.  Everywhere you look you get different opinions on the Golden Visa.  It seems it is only useful as a route to get a TIE and eventually full residency.  It was discussed on the recent Zoom meeting on Facebook with the Tenerife UK Consul and several experts.  The outcome was not encouraging. 

Other countries, for example Portugal, Finland and Cyprus have schemes where you can buy into unlimited "Golden" visas, but there is pressure on them to stop.  So, if Spain were to allow it now, or in future, they may withdraw.  I had thought of topping up my property value with a cheap rental property to reach the 500 k euros and asked about it at Paul Ruane's office.  They did not seem interested, which is odd because there was a potential sale for them.

I will take a further look through my notes tomorrow and possibly follow up with Paul Ruane when we next visit, hopefully in May.

If you can get a Spanish Golden Visa you can ignore the 90 day rule in Spain. I have only seen this today in the Sunday Times! This has been available since 2013 for anyone from EU. I have never heard of it before, or if I had it was not a concern before Brexit. As far as I have read, to qualify you need to have invested 500K Euros in Spain. They allow you to go back to 2013, It can be in a property or even multiple properties.
Wondered if any of you have researched or even successfully applied.

Aparrantly, according to the article in the newspaper, the Mayor Emilio Navarro, who’s been in the job 6 years, finally managed to unravel all the litigation of the company that built them, so they they could be demolished allowing the new company to build the Aqua Suites 2.

Our late son was 7 when we first took him to LG he would have been 41 this year & they were there then

We also went to a holiday home show at the NEC some years later only to find them being advertised as a new development under construction. (Buyer beware buying off plan).

When we returned to LG we found out, rumor or fact, that they started to build penthouses on the top and due to erosion the walls below started cracking, ever since then it has been left abandoned & the local council refused to pay for its demolition.

What I could never understand why the council gave permission for the Royal Sun & the latest development by PR without including this to be knocked down.

The basic structure is the reinforced concrete frame of pillars and beams. I doubt the block work has to be anything special.

I heard a rumour that the ceiling heights were too low to pass building approvals but that might be just an urban myth. I did once count the blocks to try to work out how high they were. The apartment we are in has higher ceilings than our house at home.

I know that the Spanish cover all the buildings in mortar render, hiding all the blockwork, sometimes good, often bad. But just looking at the structure, you may wonder if a structural Engineer would ever be able to sign it off. Just looked to light weight for the height, even though it was cut/built in to the hillside.

I was surprised to learn they are 30 years old. I had assumed they were left from the 2008 crash. That means they must have been there when we first came in 1997 but I can't remember.

I don’t think it’s a rumour anymore.
There was an article in the newspaper El Día confirming the demolition was due to start.

Looks like there is now a container at the dilapidated house above the village. It's good they finally do away with the squatters who have taken up residence there. I'm quite the progressive thinker but breaking into other people's property is never justifiable in my eyes.
