FREQUENT ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT PURCHASING A PROPERTY IN SPAIN

Which are the main requirements that a foreigner or expat needs to fulfill in order to buy a property in Spain?

Purchasing a property in the Spanish territory is quite simple. As for any other legal procedure in the country, you will just need your NIE number. This is the basic identification number assigned to foreigners that you can easily get at the Foreigners Office (Oficina de Extranjería). Our solicitor team can help you get the NIE as soon as possible so it won’t interfere with the buying process. 

 

Which taxes do I have to pay when purchasing a house? And when selling?

Basically you will need to pay one tax: the property transfer tax. If the property is second-hand, the percentage will be equal to 10%. But if it is brand new, you will need to pay just a 5%. 

In the case that you are selling the property, you will pay from 19 to 23% for the capital gains tax, percentage that will be applied to the difference between the selling price and the price you paid to acquire the house. 

 

Can I get the Spanish residency by simply buying a property?

The answer is yes. You can become a legal residence through the purchase of a house provided that the price is above 500.000€. You would then be able to apply for the golden visa (investor visa); which also allows you to bring your family with you. 

 

Will the bank give me a loan? Should I get it in my country of origin or in Spain?

At the current moment, banks in Spain are giving loans that will cover 60 to 70% of the purchasing cost of the property. Nevertheless, if you are willing to get a mortgage, our advice is to do it on your country of origin. And the reason behind is simple: you will end up paying higher taxes if you are a non-resident in Spain.

 

Do you have any other doubt? Then don’t worry! Our property lawyers are ready to solve them. Just ask us anything and we will help you out. FAST RESPONSE GUARANTEED, 24/7!
