Will Brexit affect you when buying a property in Spain?


The countdown have  officially begun to the UK’s exit from the European Union.

However, we do not know what will be the final result of the Brexit negotiations over the next two years. We still do not know if British will  have a special status, or will we have the same rules as the other non-EU nations.

if you are planning to buy a property in Spain; you should know that there is no any particular restriction for Non UE citiziens when they buy a property in Spain so it is not expected any particular rule for british citiziens either  related to the purchase of a property or any after Brexit.

Both EU citizens and Non EU citiziens will need to apply for NIE number in order to buy a property in Spain. That number is an identification number for everyone is not Spanish citizien.The NIE number it will be required for any transaction you formalize in Spain, such us buying a property, getting an insurance, opening a bank account or either renting a car etc

There is no difference for EU citizens and Non EU citiziens in the rest of the process of buying a property in Spain either.Both will have to pay they same trasnfer tax, as well as the same expenses arising from the purchase of a property in Spain, such us Notary and Registry fees.
