The cost to buy your Spanish home
How does the price break down?
In Spain, the buying cost is roughly 10 - 12% of the purchase price and it breaks down as:
- Legal (around 1.2%)
- Notary & Land Registry (1%)
- Stamp duty: only for new properties (1%)
- IVA (VAT) on new properties (10%), Transfer Tax on resales (8-10)
Mortgage commissions can vary and it is worth bearing in mind that if you purchase with a mortgage, there may be some additional costs to pay such as notary, registry fees, stamp duty.
