Acquiring a property in Spain is a relatively easy task and very legally safe if you follow a few simple steps that we will detail below.
Once found the property that fits your tastes and priorities, and reached an agreement with the owner about the sale price and conditions of the same, usually make a guarantee deposit of between € 3,000 and € 10,000, depending on the price Of the property, (sometimes this step is not done and agreed between the parties go directly to the notary.)
This deposit is given to the real estate agent who will be responsible for it and will not deliver it to the owner until the veracity of the documentation, ownership of the property and the condition of the charges have been verified.
In case of any problem with ownership of the property or the owner’s written acceptance of the verbally agreed terms, the real estate agent will immediately return the buyer to the entire amount delivered to the account.
WE DO NOT RECOMMEND TO DELIVER MONEY ACCOUNT DIRECTLY TO THE OWNER IN THIS FIRST STEP
If the buyer so wishes, he can hire an attorney to assist him in the entire process of the sale, although this is not necessary with Ellite Properties because we are collegiate APIs, so the entire process of the same is guaranteed by an Insurance Civil Liability provided by the Official Association of Real Estate Agents.
Once all the documentation has been verified and everything is in order, a contract of sale will be drawn up between the two parties specifying all the clauses and agreements verbally agreed upon.
In the contract it is usually agreed that as a formal reservation the buyer will transfer 10% of the value of the sale (less the amount of the reservation previously paid) to an account in Spain that the seller owns.
At this point if the buyer decides not to continue with the sale, he will lose the amount delivered up to that moment, if the seller does not want to complete the transaction, he must return to the buyer twice the amount delivered up to that moment.
Arriving the stipulated date to complete the operation, a visit to a notary is required, who previously has been chosen by the buyer who is the one who normally pays all the expenses of the sale and sale.
The expenses are: ITP (Transmission Tax) in the case of purchase of a second transmission (property sold by a private individual, either home or land), or VAT (Value Added Tax) when the seller is a commercial company New homes or land).
The ITP is different in each Spanish Community (region) while VAT is the same throughout Spain
In the Valencian Community the ITP is 10% and VAT for new homes also 10% while for land sold by a company or developer is 21%. In both cases you must add a 1.5% tax of AJD (Documented Legal Acts)
Notary expenses are variable but in order not to be short we can calculate the 1.5% of purchase price.
Once completed the transaction, Ellite Properties (if the client wishes), will proceed to make all changes of title and direct debit of all supplies of the property (electricity, water, gas, Community of Owners, Taxes, etc.), WITH NO COST for the new owner.
For any foreigner who is not resident in Spain, the Ministry of the Interior must first obtain a NIE (Fiscal Identification Number) for any procedure that may be carried out (deed of sale, opening of bank account, etc.)
Your lawyer can advise you on this procedure that must be carried out with the presence of the interested party in a Police Commissioner in Spain or in any Spanish Embassy or Consulate abroad.
You can also check Ellite Properties for the easiest and least expensive way for you to get this document when you make a sale of a property.
