Property conveyancing in Malaga: Frequently Asked Questions

The process usually takes about 3 or 4 months, from the signing of the reservation contract to the signing of the public deed of sale. Depending on the agreement reached by both parties, for example, the terms are usually extended if the buyer needs to apply for a mortgage.

Once the deed of sale has been signed at the Notary, your lawyer will proceed to register the property in your name, which can take approximately three months, after which the final documentation of the house and the balance will be delivered to the client with all expenses and taxes paid.

In our office, we have solicitors who are specialized in the conveyancing process but can also advise you in other areas of law, such as the signing of a will in Spain.

The conveyancing process not only deals with the legal process but also with the tax implications during and after the purchase.

The conveyancing process not only deals with the legal process but also with the tax implications during and after the purchase.

Once the conveyancing process is finished, we will proceed to:

  • Change the ownership of utilities, taxes and fees in favour of the buyer
  • IBI (Tax property)
  • The non-resident tax that will accrue annually
  • As a tax resident, you must know that your global income will be taxed in Spain (pensions, dividends, income from work, capital gains), as it is international taxation, we must apply the tax agreements signed between Spain and the country of origin
  • Tax planning if you decide to use the house for tourist rental or the study of your investment for the establishment of a Bed and Breakfast
  • Study the taxation of your heirs  according to Spanish Inheritance Tax

    What other legal procedures can we help you with?

    Our property lawyers will guide you through your entire property purchasing process all the way to completion. We handle all the paperwork from debts to taxes, until everything has been handed over and finalized at the Notary Office and your property has been added to the land registry. We also make sure that your property is legal and free of extra charges, whilst the architect takes care of the urbanistic situation of the property, and the tax advisor aids you in all of the necessary taxes involved before and after completion.

    We also advise our clients of the overall cost of buying a property in Spain, providing the total cost from the beginning with total transparency. At the end of the entire process, we will send our clients a final bill, where all taxes and expenses are paid. If there is a leftover balance, we send the money directly back to you.

    If you are selling a property, our property lawyers can give advice on all of the relevant taxes you will be expected to pay, as well as provide you with a guide on the cost of selling. Our solicitors can act as negotiator on your behalf for the conditions of your property sale, representing you from start to finish.

    We ensure that our expatriate clients avoid double taxation, providing the latest advice and information on the tax agreement between Spain and your country of origin.

    We also provide our clients with all the necessary information and documentation relating to tax in Spain, including tax returns, non-resident tax and form 720. We adapt these resources depending on whether our client is a fiscal or non-fiscal resident.

    The Non-Lucrative Residence Visa is a visa that can be requested by non-EU citizens  who wish to reside in Spain without carrying out any work or professional activity.

    This type of visa does not apply to any EU citizens or any British expatriates who have the TIE Card, as they already have the right to free movement and residence within Spain under the Withdrawal Agreement.

    The Spanish Golden Visa is a global investment plan that issues residency for non-EU citizens who purchase a property in Spanish territory (with an investment of €500,000 or above).

    Under the Law of Entrepreneurs, this is an opportunity for non-EU citizens to invest in Spanish real estate, usually in high-demand areas on the Costa del Sol, in return for the acquisition of Spanish residency for themselves and their families. The purchasing process also provides business opportunities, including leasing and tourist rental.

    Inheritance tax concerns everyone in Spain; both residents and non-residents. The tax, often referred to as ISD (impuesto de sucesiones y donaciones), becomes payable as soon as an inheritance from a family member or friend is documented – this can be money, property or an asset.

    The rules of inheritance tax vary depending on which area of Spain you live in. At Tejada Solicitors, we offer a guide on inheritance tax from the succession law to inheritance tax rates, specifically tailored to your needs.

    We provide answers to common inheritance tax queries, such as inheritance tax rates for non-residents and how to reduce your inheritance tax. You can find these answers and more through this page: Inheritance tax in Spain.

    Property condition surveys are reports that evaluate the urbanistic situation of the property, its state of conservation, and its structural integrity. This gives the client access to as much information as possible before deciding to buy or sell.

    For these reports to be carried out, you must present a simple note issued by the Land Registry. After this, we will be able to visit the property and gather all the information required. The duration of the visit will be from 1 to 2 hours. The price of these reports will vary depending on the workload and the condition of the property. As a result, there will be three different types of reports offered on all of the information regarding each conveyancing aspect. You can then choose to pay for one, two, or all three reports to help you decide whether you should buy or sell your property.

    There are two ways properties can be rented in Spain, both under contracts. Short-term rental contracts (viviendas de uso turístico) are used for work and leisure purposes, whilst long-term rental contracts are considered as permanent homes for the renter.

    Long-term rentals come under national law and depending on the area in which the property is located, short-term rentals may have regional legislations that apply to these contracts. In some areas, this includes obtaining a license granting you the right to rent for touristic purposes, such as in Andalusia.

    Any owner who is renting out their property (both long-term and short-term) must pay tax. Tax rates will vary depending on your circumstances, such as whether you are a fiscal or non-fiscal resident. In order to learn more, please visit this page: Renting out a property in Spain.
