How much does it cost to buy a property in Spain?
In Spain purchase costs (on costs as they are known locally) could be between 11% - 13% over and above the purchase price.
There are 4 purchase level structures that came into force in January 2012........
1) Up to 200,000€ your transfer tax is 8%.
2) From 201,000€ to 400,000€ it is 9%
3) From 401,000€ to 750,000€ it is 10%
4) And above 750,000€ it is 11%.
So for example if your property price is £100,000 it could cost £108,000 (or more) by the time you complete and take possession of the property.
In addition to this transfer tax there are notary fees and a land/property registration fees, which varies according to the purchase price of the property. Also consider solicitors and mortgage fees.
The average price a solicitor charges is approximately 1,500€ + IVA at 21%.
