Buying property in Spain is not as straight forward as one would expect, and that is why we always recommend you to hire a good real estate lawyer that speaks your language.
The costs should always be made clear at the beginning of the purchase, and this includes all taxes that should be paid on the property.
In a straightforward case the following will apply:
If the property is a new construction there are generally two taxes to pay:
If you buy an existing property you must pay only:
The Notary fees it might vary depending on the Notary chosen.

Anna was very knowledgeable and had prior experience dealing with English clients. She spent a lot of time explaining information and I was never rushed. I have continued to use Anna since my first meeting as I trust her judgement and know that she will look after my best interests.
Helen was super professional and really wanted me to have a good outcome! I Bad troubles with my landlord and with her we all found a solution. Thank you so much.
Professional and outstanding legal advice with correct fees.
The level of understanding was important as I had no knowledge of the subject matter. She responded to my needs by providing a quick turnaround and explained each step to ensure I understood each stage of any hurdle we came up against. I liked the fact that the channel between us was always open and that I could contact her for clarification if needed. The level of service was as I would have expected from a lawyer of this calibre and I can truly say that I did receive value for money. Being bilingual was important when dealing with local government officals and the like to get the results I requested. I have already asked for further advice on another separate matter and would have no hesitation in recommending Anna to potential clients.
I would highly recommend the legal services of Klev&Vera. I engaged them to negotiate the terms of a domestic rental contract, a process which became markedly complicated, involving many emails and phone calls on their part. Klev&Vera steered through the procedure with great patience and professionalism, and achieved all the contract changes they recommended. I'd strongly advise anyone presented with a property rental or lease contract to take expert advice before signing. Spanish legal jargon is difficult to fathom, even if you're fluent in the language. Moreover, there can be subtle disadvantageous provisions which could be easily overlooked by a nonprofessional.
