There is a wide range of products available to non-resident clients looking to buy property in Spain and we have access to mortgages from over 30 Spanish and offshore banks. The final choice depends solely on client circumstances.
A. The banks in Spain base their decision regarding your ability to repay the mortgage by looking at your net monthly income. Payslips, tax returns and / or bank current accounts are all required as verification of income amounts. They will normally also require the following documentation. This can vary from lender to lender:
All applicants: Copy of passports, NIE number, bank reference
A. We can help you find a loan of up to 50% of the valuation of Spanish property with minimum proof of income. Initially lenders require a bank reference letter, a copy of your passport and a signed self-declaration. It may be necessary to furnish additional information.
A. This may be possible, but depends on the valuation of the property, and is more likely to be possible if you are buying an off-plan property. During the period between agreeing the purchase price and the completion date the value of the property will normally have risen. Some banks will use this final valuation and it may mean that 100% of the purchase price can be funded.
A. To buy a home in Spain with the help of a mortgage, you need to budget about 12-13% of the purchase price as cover for extra costs. Included in these costs are the following:
A. Based on our experience of Spanish lenders and the mortgage application process, we can normally give a verbal indication within one to three days of whether your application is likely to be successful. This is subject to full application, required documentation and a valuation. Once all the paperwork is sent to the bank the full process should take approximately four to six weeks.
A. Please contact one of the advisors at our head office and we will discuss your requirements based on the information you provide to us. We will then be able to make a recommendation based on this information and if acceptable, can then begin the mortgage process.
A. Yes, you can now raise funds for both the build and the land. As long as you have all the relevant building licences, permissions and architects plans, the lender will advance payment in stages as the building works progress. During this time, you will only pay the interest due on the loan.
A. Yes you can, depending on what you will be using the funding for. You can also re-mortgage if you only have a small mortgage outstanding. However, remember that as you will be creating a new mortgage, costs for both cancellation of your existing mortgage and the setting up of the new mortgage will higher than you are accustomed to in the UK (normally around 4% of valuation).
A mortgage in Spain can only be set up once the property has been completed and registered with the local land registry office. You cannot, therefore, raise the amount for the deposit, at the initial stage, through a loan on that property. Normally, individuals will raise this deposit by either cash they already have or be releasing equity on existing property they own in the UK. However, as the loan on completion can be based on the final valuation, some of this cost may be recouped on completion.
A. In theory, you can take out a mortgage on a property held by an SL Spanish Company, an Offshore Company and a UK Company. However, it is a more complicated process than doing it in an individual name. One of our advisers would be pleased to go through your individual case.
A. This is a detailed list of all the costs involved in your purchase and you should receive a detailed breakdown of all these costs from your legal adviser before you go to the Notary. Your legal adviser can then give you a full explanation of each cost.
This includes costs the lender must hold by law and includes the following:
