What you need to know.
In order to own a property in Spain you must have a NIE – (numero de identificacion de extranjeros), a Spanish bank account to enable you to pay for utilities on your property such as electricity, telephone, and water.
Take into account all the costs involved in buying your new Spanish home, as well as the cost of your property plus IVA (transfer tax), the Spanish equivalent of VAT which is 7%.
Stamp duty in Spain stands at 1 or 2%.
There are set charges related to the registration of the property into your name. These vary but, as a rough guide, its best to allow 10% of the property price for all associated costs.
The types of financing packages available to purchase a property abroad like the rest of the world have changed considerably over the past few of years, this means that in general banks are less inclined to offer full financing to buy a property. In Spain like most of europe financing can be difficult to achieve, and the pecentage that banks are willing to lend has lessened, in general bigger deposits are expected .
At Sunworld.es, we work closely with a number of banks and have achieved some fantastic deals on behalf of our clients buying in the Costa Blanca South region ,we have also managed to obtain some interesting financing packages from the banks for clients looking to buy distressed property in this area through Sunworld.
Financing should always be taken seriously, we can recommend a number of English speaking mortgage advisors who can explain the process for obtaining a foreign mortgage and the requirements, and can discuss any costs to our clients. We recommend a Spanish mortgage advisor who is fluent in English.
Our team at sunworld.es can help you decide between a mortgage from your home country, or one held in Spain, as with many things there are pros and cons for each.
Before placing an offer on any property please ensure that if a mortgage is required you have full approval. To obtain a Spanish mortgage the following documentation will be required:
If you are employed you will need :
ü Last 3 wage slips
ü Experian credit report
ü Last 3 months bank statements
If you are self employed :
ü Tax return
ü profit & loss account

To be classed as a Spanish resident, to have to spend at least 6 consecutive months in the country. This makes you eligible to pay Spanish taxes.
You will also be liable for wealth tax, this annual tax is based on the value of the property and also any income that may have been made from the property.
