  1. Is there a group/s for people who dont have enough money to buy their own property individually but who would be interested to buy as a joint or group venture with the common aim of living a sustainable lifestyle ?

    1. We’ve put together “fractional ownership” groups of two-four co-owners to purchase property in Southern Spain. Now, we are looking to find a home for ourselves in Portugal — which we’d consider co-owning — and spending our time between Spain and Portugal. Of course, we’re hoping that Portugal is easier to deal with in being granted a residency visa than is Spain! 🙂

      1. This sounds interesting Bruce. I would like to know the details and how it works in practise. I think there are a number of people who would go for this solution as long as they are like minded and perhaps get to know each other a little including face to face meeting/s.
        Thanks again George

        1. In theory, principle, and practicse, it isn’t that difficult. Being the first of three co-owners, we selected the four months of each year that we wanted to “own.” The second co-owner(s) then chose their four months, and the third co-owners were pleased to accept the remaining months. We tried to be fair. Since we all are Americans none had residency visas, we were limited to staying a maximum of 90 days … followed by 180 outside the EU … and then up to another 90 days. For our own schedules, the months of April, May, December and January worked best; the second set of co-owners chose June, July, August, and March; the last two co-owners were happy enough with February, March, September, and October. Remember: Unlike a time share — where one only “owns” the time — each of us co-owners owned one-third of the property, as recorded and attested to be the deed. In other matters, we located a customizable legal *template* for co-owners and fractional ownership, which we adapted specifically to our needs. Finally, we engaged the services of a solicitor who represented us — including being granted Power of Attorney — and liaised between us, the property agent and her clients (the sellers), and the Notario who — in Spain — is ultimately charged with and responsible for conducting the legal transfer of the property. Ultimately, we had an “owner’s manual” how all aspects of the co-ownership would work … as well as the legal documentation handled by a Spanish attourney and notario. Hope this helps. Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions. I will do my best to answer them. 🙂

  2. Co-owning property few months each sounds ok as holiday but what about just sharing a property so a few owners could start something special all have there own section of land and then all the rest as shared adventures? we are looking at a few places and thinking wouldnt this be nice to build a small farm and grow our own foods and live a peaceful life from a caravan, yes some have a ruin of building which could be made as a sharing place for all to have one place to meet up? looking now at a lovely place online 2 h flat land be nice split into 2 between 2 families who want to share.

    1. hullo Daisy from Patrick I might be interested in shared ownership. My motive in considering Portugal is better climate with reference to husbandry and utilisation of my (2) horses.

      1. I too could be interested in shared ownership as I want a place to keep horses on and ride. At times however I want to be away and out of Portugal and so want to be assured that someone would look after them (as I would for other co-owners as well).

  3. Good Afternoon,

    My family and I are just in the process of selling up in the UK, we currently have been residing in our motorhome with two small children for a year now and are planning on traveling through spain and portugal during winters over the next 5 years or more. We will return to Britain to work during the summers. We are hoping that we can own a piece of sustainable land in the future and would by it out right to live there permanently – once we know which area we would like to integrate into. We would keep british citizenship , but prefer to reside in our own haven – is this possible? or would it be easier to just rent a small holding? we are put off renting though as we really want to be bill free.
