I was floundering around trying to find the information I needed to direct my decisions regarding Spanish residency, income tax, healthcare and all the usual questions that abound when moving to Spain. Thankfully for me I found Alfonso at Legal & Accounting Network, a bundle of legal and tax expertise in one person. Once he understood my precise situation he was able to efficiently advise me on the options I had as well as making a sound recommendation. In just one meeting I feel like I found a friend to help me through the maze of legal and tax options and obligations here in Spain. Thank you Alfonso!!

[FAQ] Frequently Asked Questions about Conveyancing in Spain

Depending on the agreement between the two parties, which is set out in the private contract, the conveyancing process can typically take up to 3 or 4 months, from the signing of the private contract to the signing of the public deed of sale at the Notary, although the terms are often extended if the buyer needs to apply for a mortgage.

Once the sale completion has taken place, our lawyers will proceed to register the property in your name, which can take approximately three months. We will deliver the final documentation of the house and the balance to the client with all expenses and taxes paid.

If it is not possible for you to be present during the process of buying or selling a property in Spain, your lawyer will be able to sign and complete the conveyancing process on your behalf by means of granting a Power of Attorney. You can have this document prepared while you are in Spain by making an appointment with the Notary.

Until recently it was necessary for a non-resident who owned a property in Spain to appoint a Fiscal Representative to deal with their tax affairs in Spain. This rule has now been relaxed for those foreigners whose only asset in Spain is a holiday home. However, it is advisable for both residents and non-residents with homes in Spain to count on the services of a reputable firm with expert real estate solicitors and professional tax advisors, to guide you throughout the entire conveyancing process and take care of filing your tax returns as a property owner in Spain.
