Spain is a very attractive destination for foreigners who want to buy a home, either as a main residence, second home or as an investment. Its climate, its culture, its gastronomy and its quality of life are some of the factors that seduce thousands of French and British buyers every year. However, buying a property in Spain is not a simple process, and it requires a series of steps and requirements that you should know. In this article we explain the main points to consider.

What do you need to know before buying a property in Spain?

Before you start looking for your ideal home in Spain, it is important that you take into account some legal, fiscal and financial aspects that may affect your operation. These are some of the most relevant ones:

  • You will need to obtain the NIE (Foreigner Identification Number), which is essential to carry out any real estate transaction. You can apply for it at the Spanish embassy or consulate in your country, or at the police station.
  • You will have to open a bank account in Spain to be able to pay the taxes, the notary fees, the registration fees and the price of the property. It is advisable that you compare the conditions and commissions of the different banks before choosing one.
  • You will have to pay a series of taxes and expenses associated with the purchase of a property in Spain, which will depend on the type of property (new or used), its value and the autonomous community where it is located. Among them are the VAT or the Transfer Tax, the Stamp Duty, the Wealth Tax, the Non-Resident Income Tax, the Property Tax, and the notary, registry, management and valuation fees.
