My Lawyer in Spain’s conveyancing team is here to help you with legal advice that explains the conveyancing process in Spain.
A step-by-step guide for property buyers, from your initial enquiry, we guide you through the process.

Additional Costs:

There are some additional costs to the purchase price so allow approximately 10-15% in additional costs.
Taxes: For new build property there is VAT of 10% also stamp duty of up to 2% and for used properties (re-sales) there is a transfer tax of 8-10% depending on the region you buy, there is no stamp duty on a used property purchase.

Notary Costs:

In Spain, the sale must be taken through a notary, this process is to exchange the purchase contract. The buyer is responsible for the notary fees. The fees vary depending on the purchase price.

Registration fees:

The new owner must register the property with the land registry, this usually costs around 0.5% of the purchase price. Utility Connection Fees: To connect a property to the utility of water, electric,ity or gas there are fees to pay or if it is a simple reconnection there are also fees. When the services remain in operation there are fees for changing the subscription. Financing the purchase: There are some specialised banks and lenders that will help you with a mortgage or loan for buying overseas property. You may even get advice from your own high street bank.

Running Costs:

Naturally depending on size and how much you will use the property will depend on the running costs of a Spanish home. Most properties are subject to a community charge, waste disposal, home insurance, and IBI (property tax) which is annual

Excellent service from Alex and the team. Laura was our lawyer and she was professional and kept in contact with us... through the whole process. I asked ALOT of questions & she always came back to me with an answer.I would recommend giving POA to your lawyer as this means they can act on your behalf for agreed services eg NIE, opening bank accounts, signing for completion. We were not able to be in Spain for completion so this was a god send.I would recommend my lawyer in Spain to friends & more

I had a work related problem that needed legal advice. I was signposted to a lawyer called Carmen who is the employment... lawyer. Carmen was able to assist me and help me resolve a legal case. Carmen was professional and very supportive through the whole process. This resulted in a positive outcome for me. I can't recommend Carmen enough and My Lawyer in Spain as a company. A big thank you to the team at My Lawyer in more

Alex and the team were professional, very efficient, knowlegeable and willing to answer questions, even before we... engaged their services. It felt we were in very safe hands, negotiating buying a property whilst also becoming residents. We used them as Power of Attorney too, and they did everything for us, from opening bank accounts to getting our house services connected. We can, and do, thoroughly recommend Alex and the more
