We offer a no sale no fee service, so all of your marketing is undertaken free of charge, including professional photographs, and floor plans if requested. Once we have sold your property, there is an industry standard fee of 5% plus IVA (VAT at 21%)

There is an industry standard of 1% plus IVA (VAT 21%). Our sister company, Asesoria Castles, can offer a discount to our clients.

This is a one off tax levied by the local Tax Authorities. This is based on the increase in value of the land on which the property is situated since the property was last sold. The figures are based on the rateable value of the land (Valor Catastral del Suelo) and not on the sales price. We can find out this figure for you before you make the decision to sell.

None residents

Capital gains for none resident vendors is 19%. The purchaser is obliged to retain 3% of the declared sales price and pay the funds to the Spanish Tax Authorities. This is to guard against any taxes that may be owed in Spain, including Capital Gains Tax. If all tax liabilities are to date, there is a possibility that all or part of this money can be reclaimed.

For residents only.

Capital gains tax for residents, this is based on the net profit of a sale. There are variations and exemptions and we advise you speak with a lawyer.

We will also require several documents from you in order to market and sell your property, please see the list below.
