The limited size of the island also limits the amount of land available for property construction. For this reason, there are very few suitable plots of land on the market at the moment. To make matters worse, many of the so-called construction plots cannot actually be built upon, because the laws on Ibiza are very strict and nothing can be built without the appropriate planning permission. On Ibiza, plots of land are divided into “Zona Rústica”, that is to say in the rural zone with no direct neighbours but possibly without basic infrastructure such as electricity and running water, and “Zona Urbano”, that is to say a developed construction area with all the associated advantages and disadvantages. If you want to buy a plot of land in the “Zona Rústica”, you definitely need to speak to your broker to ensure that all the paperwork is in order and that you would in fact have permission to build on the land.
The most important thing, of course, is to check whether you are permitted to build on the land. In some cases, the permit may already exist, in others you will have to apply for it.
No, of course not, because in the “Zona Rústica” the priority is protecting nature. This means that extremely strict conditions must be met and special permits must be obtained. GHL and its partners will help you with the entire process – from purchase to planning permission.
