Great news for Andalusian residents (Spanish and foreigners), from 1 January 2018, inheritance and donations tax, with several limitations, will be exempt when the estate received by each heir is valued in a million euros or less. Until now and the rest of 2017, such exemption only reached €250,000.
On the eve of the local elections for 2015, the Andalusian Parliament continues with the parliamentary approval of the law (LOUA.- The new Law on Urban Planning of Andalusia)which would allow the legalization of thousands of illegal houses scattered across Andalusia. The interest in the approval of this law with some electoral opportunism by the way it is a necessary social reality given that there cannot continue being so many properties in a commonly named “legal limbo” situation. It is used this denomination because they are impossible to regulate and it is also impossible to exercise a power to impose penalties by the Administration neither to return to a legal order for these houses.
