What Legal Costs Will Be Involved in Selling My House in Orihuela Costa?
When selling your property in Orihuela Costa, as with any type of property sale, there will be a few costs involved. These are a standard part of selling a property in Spain.
- Agent’s Commission.
- Plusvalia (Tax given to you by your local SUMA office). This is a local tax based on the incremental value of the land which the property occupies. The exact amount can be given to you by your local SUMA office.
- SUMA must be paid up until the end of the year (a retention will be taken to cover this if needed).
- Any applicable mortgage cancellation fees. With most banks, this will be between 0.5% – 1.5% on the remaining balance of the outstanding mortgage. Please note you must also ensure the mortgage is cancelled at the notary and land registry office, which may cost between €400 to €1,000.
- Non-residency tax for non-FISCAL residents in Spain. A 3% retention (of the selling price) will be taken upon completion. This is paid directly to the Hacienda (tax authority in Spain). In order to be exempt from this retention you must be a fiscal resident in Spain and provide an up-to-date RENTA for all parties named on the Escritura. If no monies are owed to the tax authority your fiscal representative/solicitor can apply for a refund post-sale.
- Capital Gains Tax: Tax payable on the difference between the current declared price on the Escritura and that of the sales price.
- Solicitors/Fiscal representative fees.
