Our tips on your way to your own dream home


Mallorca has beautiful beaches, beautiful landscapes and areas and therefore attracts many people who want to live a Mediterranean and relaxed lifestyle. One option is to buy a finished property or, due to the limited available property stock, to buy a plot of land and build your own house. Here it is important to make sure that the plot of land can be built on and that the house construction complies with local building regulations.

Finding the ideal plot of land is the first step. You should make sure that the plot of land you choose meets the strict requirements of the island council, the Consell de Mallorca. First of all, you should be clear about the area you want to live in and what the requirements for your new home are (proximity to beaches, mountains, towns or villages with shops, etc.). Then we usually differentiate between urban plots of land, which are always between 500 - 2,000 square metres in size, and rural (rustico) plots of land. For rural plots, the size of the plot must be at least 14,200 square metres in order to obtain a building permit and the building volume is limited to 900 cubic metres. Plots of land with a building permit are very rare and usually more expensive, as you can avoid the sometimes long waiting times for the building permit.

When building in Mallorca, you need the help of professionals. A local architect understands the specific requirements of the island, from the size of the property to the peculiarities of the climate. They can ensure that your home is both practical and aesthetically pleasing, and complies with all regulations. This expertise is essential, as building regulations can change regularly. Many of the architects we work with have many years of experience working with German clients, and also use our shared network of construction companies and tradespeople who have similar expertise. While the process can seem complex, with the right team - which includes our network of multilingual lawyers - it becomes much easier and more relaxed.

To avoid stress, hassle and unpleasant experiences, it is essential to hire experts with knowledge of local building regulations and the climate. We offer you access to our experienced network of professionals to make your dream of owning your own home come true. And that's what we stand for - if you want to build a wooden house without stress and hassle, then you've come to the right place!
