Extra costs involved in buying property in Spain

Section for people wanting to buy, sell or rent property in Spain.

Spanish Lawyers: Most Spanish lawyers charge between 0,9% and 1% of the final price paid for the property once the sale has gone through, plus 21% VAT.

Translators: Your lawyer may be able to see to all translations, in which case he may charge separately for this service. Otherwise you can expect to pay an hourly rate to an agency. If you are having problems contacting a reliable translator, contact us and we'll try to help.

Gestoría: If you don't want to get the services of a lawyer, you would be well advised to pay for the services of one of the many gestorias, firms specialised in obtaining official authorisations, permits, licences etc. The estate agent organising the purchase may be able to recommend one. Otherwise you could ask at your local Consulate.





Notary: Notary fees are set by the Spanish state and the final amount you pay will depend on the value of the property you buy. A notary must be present when the parties involved, buyer and seller, sign the Purchase/Sale deeds (escritura).

Registro de Propiedad: The land registrar fees are established according to regulations stated by the state.

Mortgage: If you are getting out a mortgage you will have to consult your bank to see what kind of fees they will charge you.
