Yearly costs and taxes

As a property owner in Spain you are obliged to to a yearly fiscal report and pay taxes. How much tax you will have to pay depends if you are a resident on the property or if you are renting it out.

Those who don't rent out their property and are non residents, will for 2014 pay an income tax of 24.00 % on 1.1 % of the cadastral value. The cadastral value are set by the Tax Office and are normally between 50 to 70 % of the market value.

For exemple: With a cadastral value of 100 000 euros, the yearly tax will be 100 000 x 0,2400 x 0,011 = 264 euros. Those who are resident on the property, do not pay this tax.

Those who rent it out, have to pay 24 % taxes on the net incomes. The income tax from above will be deductible from that period.

The Spanish purchase process and different warranties

The purchase process in Spain is very different from the one in Sweden. The only disadvantage is that it is much more time consuming than the Sweish, but in return it is much safer for the buyer, no matter if it concerns a resale, a new build or a completely new construction that the client owns from the beginning during the construction process.

When it concerns resales, it is always the seller, that is to say, the actual owner who is liable for all errors, hidden as well as visible ones.

Are you thinking of buying a resale in Spain?

To buy a resale in Spain is something completely different than buying a new property on Costa Blanca and surroundings.

In opposite to new constructions, where the demand is very high and the builders are having problems to produce enough, the supply is enormous.

Many of these are however bank repossessions, that is to say, properties that the banks has repossessed because the previous owners could not pay their mortgages.

These properties are difficult to sell for several reasons. One very important one is that many were built during the boom and therefore got a very high price in relation to the area and the quality.
