Our homes are very often our biggest and most important investment, and owning a house in Mallorca brings with it some particular challenges. The weather, the paperwork, the language, all of these things can be barriers to overcome. Blazing sunshine in the summer, and cold damp days in the winter, your home and your furnishings will need to be able to cope with both. If you are thinking of changing or renovating your property you will need permission from the local authorities, you might even need permission for the smallest changes inside the house. Applying for the licenses is something which even the most fluent of us would probably balk at, which brings us on to the question of language. You might need to speak Spanish, or you might have to switch to Catalan, or even in some areas, pop in a bit of Mallorquin, just to get your point across and keep things cordial. All of these factors come down to needing local knowledge in the local language but with an international, sophisticated and yet sympathetic approach to clients, and yes offer a service at a fee which is reasonable. With the help of professionals like Justine Knox and the Knox Design team, you can feel confident that your investment and your sanity are not at risk.
