Buying a property is an exciting time for everyone involved and with Central Property Malaga you are in safe hands. Our team has over 10 years of local experience and we aim to provide a complete service, helping our clients from start to finish, plus a great after sales services too.

Our team of experienced professionals is here to guide you every step of the way.
Once you have decided on your dream home, a reservation contract is drawn up while necessary legal checks are completed.

The reservation contract details the basic terms and conditions of the proposed purchase and a deposit, normally of 6,000 Euros, is paid.

This deposit is fully refundable in case any irregularities are uncovered during the due diligence process, and is held by certified lawyers, registered gestor or directly by the developers in the case of an off-plan property.

As soon as everything is verified and confirmed by both parties, the lawyer will arrange for the signing of the Private Purchase Contract (PPC). In this contract, typically prepared by the lawyers, you will find all the details of the property including address, size and features, as well as the proposed completion date and the agreed terms and conditions.

On average, with new developments, between 20 and 30% of the purchase price is paid on PPC minus the reservation amount, with the balance upon completion.  

At this point, the property is almost yours and the journey to completion begins. We will keep you updated on the progress of the development on a regular basis.
At Central Property Málaga we have a team of qualified consultants and gestor administrators plus we work with reputable lawyers who will ensure that the whole buying process is made as simple as possible and dealt with efficiently.

When you purchase in Spain, you will require a Foreigner Identity Number.  This is called an NIE (Número de Identidad de Extranjero).  

We will obtain this for you free of charge upon contracting our legal services.

If you are not able to travel to and from abroad too often, we recommend you supply our lawyers with a Power of Attorney and they will handle everything to do with the purchase for you.

At Central Property Málaga, our legal team charges 1% of the purchase price, or in cases of very lucrative properties, the legal fees may be less.

It is important to understand the terms and conditions of all contracts, plus costs and taxes. Legal guidance is necessary to protect your interests, therefore if you do not have a lawyer or gestor in Spain, we are happy to help you from start to finish.
Purchase costs and taxation when buying a property in Spain can vary, yet we recommend to our clients that they budget between 10 and 14% for taxes and purchase costs.  The tax on property depends on whether you purchase a brand new property or a resale property.

For a NEW PROPERTY, the VAT or in Spain IVA (Impuesto sobre el valor añadido) on the purchase of a new development property is 10%.  Stamp duty, or IAJD (lmpuesto de Actos Jurídicos Documentados) is around 1,2% and the Notary Fees and Registration at Land Registry is approximately 1,5-2%.  

For a RESALE PROPERTY, the tax is less at 7%, plus 2% for Notary and Land Registry.

The final step to a notary office can be in person or through your Lawyer or gestor if you give them power of attorney. Here the title deeds are signed, the remainder of the sales price is paid and the keys are handed over.  From this moment, you are now the rightful owner of your new property!
