Foreign home buying two-year rule voted down


The Thursday session of the Council of Mallorca rejected a proposal that there must be a requirement of getting lived in Mallorca for at the least two years earlier than having the ability to buy a house.

The Podemos movement was for the Council to ask the Spanish authorities to approve this restriction. The opposition events had been all towards this, and so had been PSOE, the senior members of the Council’s coalition administration together with Podemos and Més. Neither the Council nor the Balearic authorities is able to introduce such a measure, because the state has jurisdiction on this.

Aurora Ribot of Podemos, one of many two vice-presidents of the Council, mentioned: “We need to encourage the acquisition of properties amongst individuals who have roots on the island, no matter their origin.” She confronted criticism from the spokesperson for the Partido Fashionable, Llorenç Galmés, who described the restriction as “xenophobic” and “racist”.
