A few legally relevant and important tips for the purchase/sale of a property in Spain.
1.A professional real estate agent will help you find your desired property and advise on all the legal steps.
2. IBI property tax. Once you have found the right property, you should note the following:
Whether the IBI (annual tax) has been paid. This can be found out at the City Hall.
If the property is newly built ask the seller to provide a copy of the Declaration of latest works, together with a copy of the Declaration of Alteration of Real Urban Nature. This will be sufficient proof that the property is registered for IBI payment.
