What legal procedure would you like us to help you with?

Our Law Firm offers you a complete support in the property conveyancing . If you wish to buy a property in Spain we assist our clients in every step of the purchase until completion, we do all the legal searchings and check all the relevant paperwork, legal situation of the property, charges, debts, utilities, draft contract, taxes, until completion at the Notary Office. The architect checks the urbanistic situation of the property and the Tax advisor informs and explains all the taxes involved in the purchase and of course the taxes to be paid after completion. We will make sure that the property is free of charges and legal.

We inform the client about the cost of buying and the client will exactly know the total cost involved in the purchase from the beginning. After completion we will send a final balance with all the taxes and expenses paid, and if there is any balance in your favour we will transfer it to you.

Also we can help you in the sale of your property, our tax advisor will advise you about the taxes to be paid for the sale and we will inform you about the cost of selling. Our solicitor will negotiate with the buyer’s solicitor all the sale conditions and will represent you in every step of the procedure until completion.

We provide a full support for tax issues to expat people, in order to avoid paying taxes twice, there are a lot cases in which we have to apply the double taxation agreement signed between Spain and your country of origin. This situation is known as International Taxation.

Whether you are a Non Fiscal Resident or a Fiscal Resident citizen, we will attend you with the tax implications in Spain, such as, Form 720, Non resident Tax, Personal Income Tax (Tax Return), Inheritance Tax, Rental Income, etc.

The N.I.E. number is the Identification Number of Foreigners People. Getting this N.I.E number will be necessary to make certain procedures as for example: buying a house, buying a car, opening a bank account, etc… This will be the identification number with the Spanish Tax Office for these procedures as well as for the tax payment as non-residents.

It is very important to specify that obtaining the N.I.E. does not involve obtaining the residency in Spain. The fact is that this is a different procedure to legally reside in Spain and pay your taxes here.

The Spanish Golden Visa is regulated by the Law of Entrepreneurs. Through this Law, the Spanish Government grants residency for non- EU citizens who purchase a property in Spain ( house, villas, or apartment) with a minimum investment of 500.000 €.

This programme is an interesting solution for investors from Non-EU countries ( such as, China, Russia, Arab Emirates, USA) whom to have the opportunity of getting the residency with special conditions, have to make an investment in properties in Spain- in such places as Málaga, Marbella, and the Costa del Sol- in which the real estate market is always in demand.

Renting out a property in Spain for short-term rentals (“viviendas de uso turístico”) is only allowed for leisure and work purposes.

In contrast, a long-term rental contract is meant for regular use and using the property as a home. While long-term rentals are regulated by Spanish national laws, the existing regional legislation ( different in each autonomic region ) might apply to short-term contracts.

If your property is located in Andalucia and it is going to be rented for a short term you have to get from the Junta de Andalucia the touristic purposes licence. In addition to the above, the property owner who rents a property in Spain has tax obligations, depending on wether he is fiscal resident or Non fiscal Resident and the tax amounts involved will be different.

You can find more information about this matter in our section Renting out property in Spain.

Why hire Tejada Solicitors in Marbella?

When dealing with the Spanish Law system, expats often face a number of difficulties, from language and cultural differences to bureaucratic hurdles. Depending on the field of Law, regulations may differ from region to region, but also from a city like Marbella to another one like Malaga. This becomes even more important in real estate, since your lawyers or solicitors will be in charge of:

  • Interpreting the legal terms of contracts and deeds
  • Translating documents into your own language
  • Ensuring that transactions comply with local legislation

At Tejada Solicitors Marbella you will be assigned a specialist who takes charge of your case and offers you personalised advice. Nonetheless, in practice we work in a team of English speaking professionals specialising in different areas, including lawyers to economists, tax consultants and architects.
