Updates in Javea

Hi XabiaMar owners,

I have created this web log as a centre point for Javea property owners and other people living, working or moving to Javea, to use as a discussion area and to keep everyone updated on news on the Xabiamar complex. Please feel free to add comments and news items on any subject. I have visited, lived and worked in Javea with my wife Dawn, for over 20 years. Please ask us any questions that you have and we will endeavour to answer them.

Best Regards,

Steve & Dawn Nott

CAM Bank Mortgage

Hi Mr. & Mrs. Nott,

We are arranging the sales of the apartments in Xabiamar (Javea). As you know, we have started to arrange the mortgages for all the clients who want to take our mortgages.

CAM knows that the apartments do not yet have the CEDULA DE HABITABILIDAD, the special permission from the town hall. The reason for not having this permission is because the town hall is taking time, because we are in August and because the builder must change some things in the building (like entrances, plots, but nothing relating to the apartments themselves). This is a very usual process in all the new houses / apartments in Javea.

CAM has financed the building of these apartments and we have also controlled the process of the building. We have controlled the quality of the building, the 10 year insurance, which guarantees the quality of building process. We do not have any problem in going ahead with signing the different mortgages for all the clients. If there was a problem, WE WOULD NEVER SIGN THE MORTGAGES.

I would like also to inform you about the actual mortgages and the advantages in cost for all the clients who take our mortgage.

The conditions of the mortgage in CAM are :

Bank commission : 0,50% of the amount to borrow.
Interest rate : EURIBOR+ 0,9% (actually is currently around 4,50%)
Period of time : 20 years (it is possible to change the period)
About the fees and charges of the operation, I am going to compare between our mortgage and other banks:



FEES OTHER MORTGAGES other banks (150,000 EUROS):

NOTARY, LAND REGISTRY AND TAXES FOR THE MORTGAGE : 4,928 EUROS PURCHASE TAXES: 1,500 EUROS (1%) VALUATION (depending the cost of each bank) CANCEL THE ACTUAL MORTGAGE : 1,000 EUROS (NOTARY, LAND REGISTRY) Also, it is necesary to include the bank opening comission of each bank.

Here you can check the advantages in taking over the actual constructor’s mortgage with CAM, compared to changing to a different bank.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if you need more information.

Kind regards,

Cedula de habitabilidad

Sadly, no news on the town hall issuing the cedula to the developer or owners of Xabiamar complex. We could wait months or even years. I have spoken with a Spanish lady who has lived in an apartment in Teulada for seven years without a cedula. Do you want to wait that long, before you enjoy your property??? I haven’t and I believe the following phrase should help you to decide… ‘But time waits for no man….’

Why not sell?

I trust you are well. Who told you you cannot sell the property, as there is no Cedula? If you complete and a purchaser is found, the solicitors retain an agreed amount, until the cedula is issued, which is not if, but when. This is the way the Spanish purchase all the time.
Regards, Steve

Hi owners of Parques Casas Blanca, Benissa. I have spoken with Sabine today and she has informed me that the units, numbers 78 and 79 will be ready, cleaned and tidy by the first week in November.
