You have to pay 3 real estate taxes in Spain:

  • Tax on the purchase of the newly built property (national and regional tax): VAT 10% to be paid to the builder AJD (registration fee) 1.5% (Alicante), 2% (Murcia) and 1.5% (Andalusia) to be paid within 30 days after signing the deed at the notary. The notary or your lawyer is responsible for paying this tax.
  • Property tax – Cadastre (local tax): Depends on the area of the property: for information a property worth 200.000€ will cost you 450€ per year.
  • Non-resident tax (national tax): If you rent: 19% on the profit. If you do not rent: 19% of 1,1% or 2% of the cadastral value.

To buy a property in Spain, a house, a villa or a flat, the estimated notary fee is 1.500€. This amount takes into account the notary’s fees, and the registration fees at the land registry. The lawyer’s fee for organising all the management and administrative formalities is 2.000€.

The schedule of payment is set out in the contract for the purchase of your property in Spain. All payments for a property in Spain are made directly from your bank to the builder’s account. These are often flexible on the forms of payment but in general:

A deposit of between 3.000€ and 6.000€ is required to reserve the house. At this point, the house is no longer on the market. It is important to have this amount at hand during your discovery stay so that you can pay with a credit card or bank transfer.

If the property is to be built: firstly, the deposit at the signing of the contract is an amount to be negotiated (normally 50% in several instalments) and the remaining 50% at the signing of the deed at the Spanish notary.

If the house is built 30% at the signature of the contract and the rest at the signature of the notary deed. Payment is made either directly to the builder before signing and after the inspection of the finished house, or with a bank cheque from a Spanish bank.

YES, the price to buy a property in Spain is the same for everyone. If you find a different price it is because it is a different property in the same complex where the price is not updated.

It is a fact that buildings in Spain are not like at home so don’t expect to have the same size and facilities in houses or flats. In Spain everyone will tell you that life is outside and especially in the coastal areas where there is more demand, the apartments for sale are normally 2 bedroom 2 bathroom holiday flats with a built up area of around 70 m2. Penthouses and 3 bedroom flats are always the most in demand and the first to be sold.

There is also a tendency to build small terraced or semi-detached houses close to the town centre with all the amenities, sometimes even with a swimming pool in villages such as San Pero del Pinatar, Bigastro or Pilar de la Horadada. The unique characteristics of the south of Spain on the Costa Blanca South allow us to find you a property in Spain near the sea, on a golf course, a house near the town centre or a villa with a swimming pool that fully meets your criteria.
