Once you have stayed in a house for some time, it starts turning into a home. This is indeed the case in and around Marbella. Houses hold a lot of memories and for this reason, you should fight repossession at all cost whenever you are having a problem with your lender/s. House repossession could be as a result of financial hardship, threat of repossession, divorce or separation, a severe health problem, bereavement, unemployment, tax debt, and relocation.
The most important tip if you want to stop house repossession is to talk to the bank immediately you start having financial problems. The financial institution will appreciate this and you are more likely to get refinancing. Once you contact your lender, request for a grace period. This will allow you to get your financial footing back. Once you get refinancing, you have to keep future repayments up to date. If you want to stop house repossession, consider seeking financing from other sources to pay off your debts. You could seek the services of a debt consolidator if you have money but have different debts. You could borrow money from family members, friends, or colleagues with little or no interest.
You could stop house repossession by selling the house before it can be foreclosed. Banks and other lenders repossess and dispose of houses even when you are only remaining with a few repayments. These lenders usually dispose of houses with the sole aim of getting the money they are owed and you will not get the balance. For this reason, you should sell the house before it is repossessed and pay the financial institution what is due to it. You could sell your house fast to stop house repossession by listing the house online, by having a low asking price, by having low minimum deposit and a flexible repayment plan, by allowing for negotiations, and by enlisting the services of a real estate agency. The ISO 9001:2008 accredited Alta Vista Property, run by Michael Liggan lists such houses for sale.
You could enlist the services of a property investor or a repossession expert such as Michael Liggan. You could go to court to stop house repossession, even if you are the one to blame. Once you explain your case, the bank may advice the lender to give you a grace period or to adjust your repayment. You could enlist the services of a Sell House Rent Back Company or a real estate company like Altavista Property to stop house repossession.

There are several luxury properties in and around Marbella. You could find these properties through Altavista Property whose CEO is Michael Liggan. Altavista Property has an ISO 9001 accreditation.
Golden Mile is perhaps the most famous area of Marbella, situated along the Mediterranean coast and it extends for 4 km from the ending of Marbella’s center to the beginning of Puerto Banus. In Golden Mile, there are exclusive apartments and villas, and even some mansions and palaces, such as the Royal’s Family Palace of Saudi Arabia or the copy of the White House. The streets are full of abundant natural gardens and a peaceful environment that allows for quiet, relaxed, and unhurried life.
Altavista Property can get you a property in Puerto José Banús, also known as Puerto Banus. This is the most exclusive marina in Spain, and one of the most important in Europe because of the large boats and luxury yachts that dock here every year. It is also one of the most cosmopolitan places of Marbella, because of the large number of tourists and foreign residents causing a cultural, lively, and dynamic atmosphere. During summer, you can enjoy numerous international events such as fashion shows, presentation of luxury cars, concerts, theme parties, etc., and at night a variety of discos and clubs are open until dawn. Another major reason to attract more tourists is a big variety of shops, where you find only the most exclusive international brands: Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, and Versace. This is also the ideal home for yacht-lovers.
Sierra Blanca is a mountain massif that acts as a barrier against cold winds from the north of Spain, getting Marbella to enjoy an excellent microclimate for almost the entire year. At the foot of Sierra Blanca is one of the most prestigious residential areas of Marbella with stunning views of the entire municipality of Marbella and you can even see the coast of Africa and Gibraltar. In this exclusive urbanization, you will find enormous villas with the greatest luxuries, modern houses with impossible structures, pools on the edge of the mountain, spa areas and golf courses. Sierra Blanca is without doubt the perfect place for those wishing to withdraw from the hustle and bustle of the city, and start living in the quiet of the mountain, but always surrounded by luxury, glamor, and exclusivity.

Altavista Property – Finding the best property at the best price for you
When it comes to real estate, whether it’s bargain property at the lower end of the scale or luxury at the higher end, you’re going to want to snatch it up at the best possible price. This applies to first time buyers as well as experienced property investors. Getting the best bang for your buck is important especially in a recession where cash can be tight. However, you can make it easier for yourself by following a simple set of guidelines.
The reasons for the popularity of the city’s real estate, explains Michael Liggan, include the facts that the city is on the Mediterranean Sea, it has wonderful climate, well-developed touristic infrastructure, and is a cultural hotspot. Marbella is popular because of its attractive architecture, its sporting facilities, and its many museums and other cultural attractions. Marbella, often referred to as the St. Tropez of the south, has long been a playground for the rich and famous, and the likes of Antonio Banderas own property here.
Michael Liggan looks at what motivates people to consider a move to Spain, and finds that there is more than one reason.
Of all the reasons cited by immigrants for their decision to move from Northern Europe to Spain (better weather, more relaxed lifestyle, improved healthcare), few have seriously considered the difference in crime rates. Yet now, with the UK’s serious crime statistics showing a marked annual increase, this aspect is starting to be discussed.
With unemployment at record levels and property price falls accelerating in many areas, good news from Spain is thin on the ground.
Much has been made of Spain’s property glut but it seems that in the Costa del Sol at least, falling prices are beginning to clear the market.
It was Fabio Capello’s lowest moment. In the immediate aftermath of the humiliating 4-1 defeat by Germany at the 2010 World Cup, as he surveyed the wreckage of his South African campaign, he said wistfully: ‘I remember Denmark in 1992, they came straight off the beach to win the European Championship.’
