Property Documents Required for Selling Property
Cédula de habitabilidad
A cédula de habitabilidad is a certificate that proves a dwelling is habitable for living in, a property that is suitable for human dwelling. It is mandatory to have a cédula de habitalidad to contract utility supplies and sell or rent a home. There are two types of Cédula de habitabilidad:
Cédula de habitabilidad de primera ocupación (certificate of habitability of first occupation); for newly constructed houses.
Cédula de habitabilidad de segunda ocupación (certificate of habitability of second occupation); for existing houses, required for notary so a new owner can contract utilities into their names.
EPC (energy performance certificate)
The EPC or in Spanish CEE (certificado de la eficiencia energética), this is certificate made by a qualified technician that informs of the energy characteristics of a property.
This document is mandatory for selling a property and also to receive touristic licence now needed if you intend to let your property.
Properties will receive a rating in letters between A being the most energy efficient to G being the least. Calculations are made assessing a properties annual energy consumption under normal operation when occupied.
Property Selling Taxes
We often get asked by our vendors the taxes they are liable to pay when they sell their Spanish property, below a brief description of the selling taxes due on the sale of property in Spain. The information is informative, laws and tax rates can change and we advise that you contact a lawyer or tax specialist to be advised accurately.
This is a tax paid to local municipal of the property for the increase in the value of the land, a tax applied when a property is sold, gifted or inherited.
The tax is calculated from the properties catastral values to amount of time the property has been owned; the time elapsed from when the property was bought to when it was sold.
Capital Gains Tax
(impuestos sobre las ganancias de capital)
The difference between the purchase price and the sales price of a property. The tax currently varies between a range of 19% and 23% (23% applied for more than 50,000 gain). For non-residents in Spain (but resident in another EU country) then the tax is fixed at 19%. You can add to the value of the property the purchase tax or IVA where applicable and investments into the home, works which are deemed to add value to the property.
For non-residents, 3% of the sales price is retained in lieu of your capital gain at the notary by the purchasers and paid to the Spanish tax office on your behalf. It's then for you to justify to the tax office your capital gain or loss and pay relevant taxes due to the gain or file for the redemption of the 3% if you have made a loss.
Residents do not get retained the 3% but are liable to justify the transmission of property on their tax returns. Spanish law does exempt residents of over 65 years from capital gains tax if they have been using the property for their habitual residence for 4 years (signed onto the Padron for 4 years), for exceptions to the 4 years if you have not owned the property for so many years.
