Purchasing and selling property in Spain – Residential Conveyancing

Purchasing and selling property in spain

MAR CONSULTORES has a very strong and experienced residential conveyancing team, covering all of mainland Spain and The Balearic Islands.

How can MAR CONSULTORES help you when you are intending to purchase or sell a house in Spain?

When you buy a property in Spain, it is necessary to check that the title is registered in the vendor’s name free of any mortgages or charges. We will need to advise on the taxes and expenses payable in addition to the purchase price. It is important to ensure that the property is purchased free of  liabilities a non-resident vendor may have for Spanish gains tax, by deducting the statutory withholding tax and paying this over to the Spanish Revenue.

MAR CONSULTORES will provide advice on the potential liability to Spanish gains  and  inheritance tax in the event of sale or death and will alert you to any onerous contractual terms and negotiate on your behalf.

If you are selling your Spanish house, we can recommend you an Independent Estate Agent who can suggest market value guide price for your property.
