Spain is safe, why do I need a monitored Alarm System?
Property Locks can now be opened leaving no trace with kits costing just euros
Many expats have a romantic notion that their home is Spain is safe. The reality is even in a relatively low crime country like Spain, locks can now be opened leaving no trace with kits available online that cost only a few euros. There are many videos in spanish on youtube showing how easily quality locks are opened, in literally less than 30 seconds with generic Master Keys, using bumping, and other techniques leaving absolutely no trace. They then have a key for your property. If there is no evidence of a forced break in, there is no insurance cover. These multi master key sets are easily available on the internet for less than 100€!! This information is being shared online amongst intruders.
Squatters are protected by law and are a real and growing problem in Spain.
There are now online guides on squatting in vacant or semi vacant properties. Squatters (OKUPAS) will try to claim your property as their new abode. They may phone the police themselves to self report that they have been “squatting” in your property more than 48 hours. Why? After these 48 hours (two days), the police need a court order to be able to evict them. Then it usually a civil matter for the owner to pursue.
New legislation in 2018 has not helped. Property owners, owners of holiday homes or homes up for sale, face an uphill battle through very slow Spanish courts to recover their property from squatters. This extremely expensive battle can run into years.
Low security attracts criminals. Summer and Christmas months are peak months for break ins.
