There are many good reasons to buy a property in Spain, but before buying a property, there are certain aspects of the process that you may wish to familiarise yourself with. The following is a brief summary of what is involved in the purchase of a property, considering that there are possible variations, depending on each specific situation:
1. Once you have decided on a property, generally you would make a refundable "reservation fee" in order to take the property off the market for a short time, and to show the "real" intention to buy.
2. At this stage you should "choose a lawyer", preferably an English speaking Spanish lawyer with experience in this field. Your lawyer will carry out the following before buying:
- Make the necessary checks on the property to ensure that all Spanish legal requirements are met, and that the property is free of debts and inhabitants and is up to date with all the payments.
- Prepare the sales contract in which the terms and conditions of sale are clearly established, as well as setting a date for completion in the presence of a Notary.
3. When signing the contract, you are required to pay 10% of the sales price.
4. On the day of completion, it is expected that the buyer and seller attend the Notary in person for signing in front of the Notary. This is when the final payment is made, and when the property keys are handed over. The Notary will declare on the public record that the sale / purchase has been completed.
5. From that moment, the deed of sale can be accessed at the Land Registry and rates and taxes must be paid (usually your lawyer takes care of this within the 30 days following completion).
6. The lawyer is there to help you every step, and to ensure that the operation is successful. As well, he/she would usually take care of changing over documentation to your name, setting up direct debits for electricity, water, community fees, rates, etc., You should also consider making a Spanish Will and testament, which is not necessary but maybe convenient.
7. In addition to the Sales price you should take into account, approximately an extra 10% on top for other expenses, such as 8% transfer tax or I.V.A, Notary fees, Land Registry fees, Lawyers fees etc. Also bear in mind if you are taking out a Spanish mortgage, there will also be opening fees for the mortgage. All these expenses should be explained in detail by your lawyer beforehand.
8. As can be seen in this brief description, the buying process is not as complex as perhaps in other countries and buying a property in Spain is fairly straightforward and simple.
