Can I come and take a look without any pressure to buy?
It is what we do best. We are here to show you the lifestyle and the local towns and villages. If after visiting you like the idea of living in Spain you are always welcome back on a second or third visit.
What will my resale mobile home cost exactly?
The advertised price of the home is the guide price for the home. Quite often sellers will also accept an offer if it is “in the region of”. This method makes buying a re-sale mobile home cost effective. This is because all the hard work is complete and you can enjoy the home straight away.
What does the resale mobile home price include?
The homes are all furnished.The home will also have an inventory. There will be no hidden extras and of course you can see everything in place when you view the home.
Your team member on your inspection visit will make sure that you see the homes that might interest you.
What are the Annual Park Fees?
The Park fees are 354 Euros a month paid every 6 months. When converted to GBP you will appreciate what you will be getting for your money. You are paying for 5 star facilities, bi-lingual staff, 24 hour security and the park. Nothing in Spain beats it for quality and what is on offer.
What are the legal requirements?
The park lease renews automatically every time you pay the park fees. You will always have a lease first before you buy the home. The seller and buyer sign a legal contract of sale to include a home check of the home. The legal sales agreement and home check costs 200 Euros. Costa Difference Ltd takes care of all the paperwork required. The parks take care of you once you arrive.
How long can my mobile home remain on the Park?
There is no limit on how long a home can stay on site. Provided you pay the fees and respect the contract the home can stay for its lifetime.
Are pets allowed on the mobile home parks?
The golden rule is up to two domestic pets per plot. In cases where there are three pets, the the parks consider things on a case by case basis. Contact us if in doubt.
Are the parks legal and established?
The parks are well established and legal. A copy of the license is on display in the reception. Residents are also registered with the local town hall.
Can I rent a mobile home first on the park?
No is the answer. The parks are 5 star residential which means no subletting. It is what separates them from joint camping/mobile home parks.
Do you offer free inspection visits?
Free inspection visits were the tricks of the trade for selling timeshares. That as everyone knows leads to pressure selling. That is the last thing we want. What we offer are short visits that include airport transfers and hotel accommodation. The short visits cost £79 per person.
Do you sell new mobile homes?
Yes we do. We work with Mobile Homes Abroad who are dealers in Europe for most of the UK manufacturers.
Do you sell Park Lodge Homes? We not only sell them we also design them. We are one of the first companies in Spain to offer this service. Our Park lodge Homes are special. We have a dedicated website for them. www.costaparklodge.com
The latest design is “The Windsor” which is a 41 x 13 two bedroom two bathroom model that is out of this world. Designed by us and built by Alhambra Homes in Alicante.
What are the medical facilities like?
In a word, superb. 24 hour medical centres in the village as well as a very modern hospital in Antequera. If retired you register with the local doctors. Park La Posada include all the registration process as part of their service so it is all free of charge. On other parks there is about a 200 Euro charge to cover the registration processes.
Can I buy without visiting the parks?
A BIG no to this question. Visits are an important way to see if living in Spain is ideal on an individual basis. During the visit we give lots and lots of information as well as showing the parks and area.

BUYING A RESALE MOBILE HOME
The buying of a resale mobile home process is very easy. First choose from the homes on sale on our website which homes you would like to view on a visit.
If a home ticks all the boxes during your visit you make an offer.
If the seller agrees to the sale we then arrange for a legal sales agreement which costs 200€. Paying that takes the home off sale straight away for 14 days.
Next stage is for a 10% deposit paid into a "Client Account" where it stays until the same completes.
On the completion date we take possession of the home. At that stage you make the final payment to the seller. Once the final payment clears the home is then yours.
No wonder resale mobile homes are so popular.
