Purchasing Process in Spain &
the Canary Islands

Once you have found your ideal property, SuCasaBella is fully involved in the process taking care of the administration for you:

  • Once the property has been selected the property has a transfer tax applied (6% of the property price) which needs to be paid.
  • The property registration office is where the deeds are transferred into the Buyer’s name and this will incur a fee in the region of €300. There will be notary charges - the charge being dependent on the purchase price.
  • Buyers often need to pay for the Seller’s legal costs but fees can be negotiated.
  • Some properties are not registered with a title deed so it is important to ascertain the title deed from the Seller.
  • The Preliminary Contracts are drawn up and legal, local and regional authority searches take place.
  • An official valuation report is compiled and a certified structural survey is done on the property.
  • A general detail report is produced and the documents prepared for the Notary.
  • In total you should allow 10% of the purchase price for taxes and charges.
  • Some regional variations may apply to the Canary Islands
