The UK government has reached an agreement with the European Union on citizens’ rights in negotiations on the UK’s withdrawal from the EU. This will provide certainty about the future of UK nationals and their families living in the EU. Most importantly, it will allow UK nationals to stay in their Member State of residence after the UK leaves the EU on 29 March 2019. On 19 March 2018, the UK government reached a further agreement with the Commission on the terms of a time-limited implementation period that will start on 30 March 2019 and last until 31 December 2020. This means that all UK nationals lawfully residing in another EU Member State on 31 December 2020 will be covered by the citizens’ rights agreement reached in December. Following the agreement on the Implementation Period, all UK nationals lawfully residing in another EU Member State on 31 December 2020 will be covered by the citizens’ rights agreement. Close family members (spouses, civil partners, unmarried partners, dependent children and grandchildren, and dependent parents and grandparents) of UK nationals covered by the agreement will be able to join those UK nationals in their Member State of residence. Close family members will enjoy the same rights by virtue of their relationship, where the relationship existed on 31 December 2020.   Children born or adopted to a UK national, covered by the agreement, outside of the UK national’s Member State of residence after 31 December 2020, will also be covered by the agreement.   During the Implementation Period (30 March 2019 to 31 December 2020), free movement rights will continue to apply to UK nationals. This means you will be able to live in an EU Member State. Agreement so far on the rights of UK nationals in the EU, the UK and EU Commission have so far agreed that: • UK nationals and their family members covered by the agreement will continue to have the same access as they currently do to healthcare, pensions and other benefits • UK nationals and their family members covered by the agreement will be able to leave their Member State of residence for up to 5 years without losing their right to return The UK and EU Commission have also agreed that:   • EU27 Member States may require UK nationals and their family members covered by the agreement to apply for a residency document or status conferring the right of residence. Administrative procedures for such applications will be transparent, smooth and streamlined • Where an application is required to obtain status, UK nationals will have until at least 6 months after the end of the Implementation Period to submit their applications • Residence documents will be issued free of charge or for a charge not exceeding that imposed on nationals for the issuing of similar documents (such as passports) • UK nationals who, before the end of the Implementation Period, are holders of a valid permanent residence document or a valid domestic immigration document conferring a permanent right to reside, will be able to exchange that document for a new residence document free of charge. They may be required to provide proof of identity and undergo criminality and security checks • During the Implementation Period (30 March 2019 until 31 December 2020), UK nationals will be able to move to another EU Member State as they can now. If you are required by the Member State in which you are resident to apply for a residence status, you will have until at least June 2021 to make that application • During the Implementation Period (30 March 2019 to 31 December 2020), you will enjoy the same rights to work in an EU Member State as you do now. If you are legally resident in the EU by the end of this period you will be covered by the Withdrawal Agreement, and will be able to continue living and working in your Member State of residence broadly as you do now • The UK State Pension is payable worldwide under domestic legislation. UK nationals resident in a member state by the end of the implementation period will maintain the right to export an uprated UK state pension and receive associated reciprocal healthcare cover in the EU, for as long as they remain in scope • The UK’s exit from the European Union will not change existing double taxation arrangements. Double taxation agreements ensure that any individual (not just a British citizen) who is living in a country that has a treaty with the UK will not pay tax in two countries on the same income/gain and determines which country has primary taxing rights. The UK has a double taxation agreement with all EU Member States, which will continue to apply on withdrawal.For more information go to the Government web page below:-  Thank you to Christina Brady for this very useful information for our clients!

Coming onto buying property – what is the market like now in terms of prices going up, down or staying the same?The property market is becoming busier year on year, prices have started to rise, if you are thinking of buying in Spain then you should consider doing it sooner rather than later. I would not by a house here with a view to making a lot of money when you come to sell it in the short term, but as a place to live, there are few better locations. Is this a good time to buy and are there any repossessions or very cheap properties still available to buy?Whilst the market has considerably improved this year it is still a buyers market and there is still a lot of choice. There are some price ranges that are a bit thin on the ground, but on the whole, there are still some bargains to be had if you are in a strong financial position to proceed with a sale. While Barx does not have too much in the way of re-possessions (it is a wealthy area), the prices for the area are a great deal lower than you may pay in Denia or Javea, so still great value for money!!.  How much are typical property prices in Barx/La Drova for apartments, villas etc?Roughly speaking, and I mean very roughly, a three bed Villa with Pool, and a reasonable plot will range from around €210,000 to €300,000.  We also have a range of high end and luxury properties on larger plots which range in price up to 900,000 euros approx. Village houses without pools peak at around €170,000, and apartments in the Gandia area can be picked up for as little as €53,000.  There are also some great development opportunities available if you fancy a project, but some are not for the faint-hearted!. Any tips and advice to people looking to buy in Barx or surrounding area?Do your homework, fix your price range and remember that you will need 10% purchase tax on top of the purchase price. Land registry, notary and solicitors fees will cost another 2% on top.  If you budget for 12% on top of the agreed sales price then this should cover all additional expenses.Decide what you are buying. Are you looking for a holiday home perhaps with rental income, or somewhere where you are going to live now, or in the future.Is crime an issue for expats?No, it is not an issue, but you would not leave your doors and windows open in the UK if you went out, so why do it here. There are isolated incidents, but very few and far between. If you are going to leave your villa unattended for long periods, it may be worth installing an alarm, or asking someone to pop by on a regular basis to check all is ok. The area is very safe, taking a walk along the main paseo in Gandia at 12 o'clock at night you will find young families, grandparents all taking a stroll, sat chatting, enjoying a drink, i certainly wouldn't feel safe doing this in the uk, in the uk there is a culture of closing the door at 7.00 pm and not going out, here we live an outdoor life and enjoy every minute of it!.

What are your favourite things to do in the area? The key to this part of Spain is the outdoor living, the scenery is spectacular and is just waiting to be explored. Gandia is steeped in history, has fantastic shopping areas, and is fabulous for people watching from any of the large number of cafes or bars along the Passeo or in the many small squares. However, the best part must be the nearly 5 miles of stunning, white sandy beaches that you find in and around Gandia, forget Florida, this is real, and you don’t have to queue to get a space.    The area is a mecca for cyclists of all ages, and there are some great mountain climbing areas too and ideal hiking countryside.  Various equestrian centres for horse back riding too.  The region has stunning scenery, pine clad mountains, rivers for fishing, streams, rock pools and waterfalls, something for everyone!. Many beautiful mountain walks or a stroll through the orange groves, a great place if you have pets and enjoy the countryside way of life.The 'Theatre Serrano' in Gandia is a beautiful building and has different productions throughout the year including Russian Ballet every December. The Casa De Cultura in Gandia city holds many cultural events all year – exhibitions, lectures and summer concerts held in the beautiful gardens in July and August (many are free).  The Borja Palace dates back to the 15th century,it is very grand and shows the lifestyle of the royal Borja's.  The Monastery of Sant Jeroni de Cotalba is near Marxuquera, beautiful to visit and dates back to 1388Water Sports. There are a huge selection of beaches to choose from, Daimus, Grau de Gandia are the closest beaches, jet skiing, wind surfing, dinghy sailing from the marina, kite surfing, paddle boarding, kayaking basically anything you can think of is just 15 minutes’ drive away. Also there is a yacht club called Club Nautica in Oliva.There are several equestrian centres in the area, you can have riding lessons, a hack through the orange groves or learn to drive a carriage or to do show jumping.There are several tennis clubs situated near the Grau de Gandia , Bellreguard, Alizira and is not just for tennis but Padel courts too. Lessons are available for all ages and abilities.Golf Club in Gandia is situated between Gandia and the beach of Grau de Gandia. 9 Holes with a putting green and practice range.  Also the most fantastic golf course called La Galiana which is only a 15/20 minute drive from La Drova with the most breathtaking scenery, a real favorite for people who live in the area.Shopping, Gandia is a city and has all the shops expected of a city, indoor shopping complexes with cinemas, Calle Major and streets off have around 800 different shops, Grau de Gandia for beach shopping and on the outskirts are the DIY shops such as Leroy Merlin, car showrooms, garden centres, Pet stores, basically various out of town shopping centres that have everything you need. There are a variety of markets also throughout the year in Gandia, a Medieval market and a huge market over the bridge at the end of the paseo every Saturday selling everything from leather goods, clothes to olives, spices, fruit and vegetables.   Can you give us some insider tips to the best bars or restaurants? Locally you will not find a bad restaurant. If you like Pizza, Bar la Font is amazing, and they do takeaways too. A little further afield are Bar Puig Mola and La Vistetta, both are fantastic for Paella and a great Paella restaurant in La Drova too. In Gandia, our favourite is Visconte, Vinos y Mas, Sabor Arte, Telero , to name just a few, all serve great food and their 'menu del a dia's' (menu of the day) have a wonderful choice of good quality food at very reasonable prices, not forgetting the great quality Valencian wines available too.   Are there smaller villages nearby that you might also recommend? There are countless villages and small towns, far too many to name, but if you are thinking of buying over here, give us a call, we will be more than happy to show you around.   Getting there – what are the roads and airports like? We prefer to fly into Valencia, but there are also flights into Alicante too from most major UK airports. The road links are great, Valencia is about 55 minutes away, with Alicante just over an hour. Forget the M25, the roads are normally very quiet, even in peak times.  Great thing about transport links to Valencia airport is that you can pick up a train in Gandia which takes you to the central Valencia Nord train station, and catch the metro just outside this station, which takes you straight into the airport terminal to catch your flight, which makes travelling back to the uk, or other European destinations very easy indeed.   What are the nearest international schools and how good are they? You will find that every major city in the area will have an international school we have one in Gandia , Xativa and Alzira. These will follow the UK  curriculum, a bit of research will pay dividends, the education standard is good.  There are also a selection of private Spanish Schools and Spanish state schools to chose from if required.  Gandia also has a University Campus that is attached to the University of Valencia.

Sally and her team were amazing. From the moment we contacted them they were so helpful, they helped narrow down our list of properties to the most suitable ones, took us on numerous viewings. They were always able to help with any questions we had throughout the buying process. They provided expert knowledge on the region, Spanish property buying quirks and recommendations for experts to help. Sally is so proactive, diligent and professional. Since we have owned our property the service is still the same and they are always on call to answer and questions and support us. I would recommend Sally and her team to anybody considering buying a house in Spain!!. Jillian & Stuart, purchased a property in La Drova through "FOR SALE BY SALLY IN SPAIN"

“After viewing several houses on the south coast we ventured to Gandia and instantly fell in love with the location, thankfully Sally and Colin worked in that area because without their patience and insight to the area I would have been sold something I would have regretted. After viewing 10 places in the area with various agents it became apparent that Sally's company just wanted me to have the right place for me not the place they wanted to sell me. The assistance that was given was totally invaluable, they had my best interest at heart over their own. The house is now mine and they are still helping me out – totally priceless!!! . Without them and their contacts I would have been totally lost and never got my place in the sun – thank you so much”. Mark McLaughlin purchased a property near Gandia through FOR SALE BY SALLY IN SPAIN!

From the first time we spoke until we completed Sally and her team have been more than a real estate agents. Sally was a trusted advisor and helped us work though every obstacle whether logistical or emotional. It is true to say that she has been fundamental to the fact that we are now owners of a great home in Spain, but more importantly the right home for us, many thanks!. Lee & Gillian purchased a property in La Drova, near Gandia through FOR SALE BY SALLY IN SPAIN!

What a team. “Muy simpatico”. In our experience, they are hard working, straight talking and conscientious, making good use of their expert knowledge of the local market, especially in rural areas. They clearly recognised the key benefits and potential of the property and more particularly its location, matching these only to suitable, international buyers, with the right budget. Their liaison skills, between seller and buyer, showed a remarkable understanding and tolerance of the detailed needs of both, contributing much to successful completion. M & C, returning to Yorkshire after 14 very happy years! Sold their property through FOR SALE BY SALLY IN SPAIN!

“Sally and her team made the whole process of buying a house in Spain relaxed and enjoyable and was there every step of the way to help seamlessly join all the dots and welcome me into my little slice of paradise in a very professional and supporting way and I couldn’t have been happier that I bought my house through her! Thanks Sally you were amazing!” Aidge purchased a property near Ontinyent through FOR SALE BY SALLY IN SPAIN

On our way home we were talking about the purchase process. House buying is supposed to be one of the more traumatic experiences and in a foreign country that is meant to be worse. We both feel that the help and support during the house buying process made the whole experience relaxed and enjoyable!. Thanks again for all your help with everything, we really appreciate it!. Now the proud owners of a property in Espana!. D & B Thompson bought a property near Barx through FOR SALE BY SALLY IN SPAIN!

Just to say how refreshing reassuring and comfortable it was to meet with your team today, we found Richard and Deana to be sincere and down to earth, professional and knowledgeable and explained everything to us clearly and most of all they gave both Lenny and myself time to talk and also to answer all our queries, we both feel that your company will work closely with us throughout our sales process, thank you ! Three weeks after FOR SALE BY SALLY IN SPAIN had taken on our property, we had an offer which we accepted! Fantastic work, thank you!. Win and Lenny sold their property in 3 weeks through "FOR SALE BY SALLY IN SPAIN"

Sally and her colleagues/team provided an exceptionally professional service both in marketing our villa and recommending improvements to improve its sale-ability. Our villa had been on the market for 11 months with three other local estate agents without a single viewing before we gave the sole agency to Sally. Within 2 weeks we had had our first viewing and interested buyers came on a regular basis until a buyer was found 6 months later. Sally’s attention to detail and excellent local knowledge enabled us to sell the large villa very quickly in what was a difficult market. Sally provided a top class personal service and worked enthusiastically with us in finding a buyer and smoothing the path though the sometimes complex Spanish legal system. Nothing was too much trouble for her, including making arrangements for non-contractual matters while we were out of the country. We cannot recommend highly enough FOR SALE BY SALLY IN SPAIN and their fantastic service. John & Gill, sold their property in La Drova through FOR SALE BY SALLY IN SPAIN!

Having sold our property in Spain we found after only a few months how much we missed it. Searching through properties on the internet I was impressed by those offered by For Sale By Sally in Spain, as it showed a great deal re the apartment we succeeded in buying. Rather than wasting a flight to come and see for ourselves initially we were able to look closely what was available within our price range in some detail. This allowed us to be open minded but stick to our criteria. She had good knowledge of the property and the area which has helped us immensely. Sally was particularly helpful in her availability to negotiate with the Spanish owner and arrange 2 viewings in the same week. Decision made. However it did not stop there, Sally offered guidance on a solicitor ( with whom we remain very impressed by) and made herself available when we had a teething problem ( as you do with most properties). I only give praise and thanks when I feel it is appropriate and earnt. Sally gets thanks and praise for “going the extra mile” . We are very happy with our apartment. M & S Spencer purchased an apartment near Gandia through FOR SALE BY SALLY IN SPAIN!

A thank you and well done in taking up the challenge of selling our villa – you really did yourselves proud as an estate agency. We appreciate your candor and straight talking professionalism and ‘can do’ attitude which is very refreshing and obviously achieves great results. Be proud of yourselves, we needed to sell and you delivered. Barry & I would like to thank you for your positive & valued assistance in bringing this sale to completion. Good Luck for the future, Barry & Helen - Monte Corona Sold their property on Monte Corona through FOR SALE BY SALLY IN SPAIN!

"We found Sally and her team to be professional, highly motivated and pro active. Their photos of our property were excellent as was the marketing. Sally herself keeps her finger on the pulse at every step of the way and works extremely hard on your behalf. Her liaison skills between buyer and seller are exceptional. Overall a dynamic and effective agency and we would highly recommend them." Neil and Maureen sold their property near L´Olleria through FOR SALE BY SALLY IN SPAIN!

Our house search began with your company FOR SALE BY SALLY IN SPAIN. When we were at a low point and didn't think we'd find anywhere we really wanted, Colin said ' don't worry, you'll buy eventually.' Thank you Colin and Sally for starting us off, being patient and keeping us motivated. What you also did is show us around a fabulous part of Spain. We never felt we needed to move our search away from this area”. Gillian and Dave Marshall purchased a property near Barx
