Once you have decided to purchase a particular property, Webster Asesores will draw up the Private Purchase Agreement wherein the terms and conditions by which the purchase will be regulated are recorded.
This document is usually signed by both parties (the vendor and the purchaser) or their representatives, and at this point the initial payment (or deposit) is handed over. Since there are various types of contracts, they discuss the most convenient one depending on the individual needs of each client.
Searches are also carried out in the Land Registry to ensure that the property is totally free of charges, which will give the prospective purchaser peace of mind knowing that there will be no hidden surprises.
If everything goes to plan, which it usually does, on the agreed date for completion both parties appear in the presence of the Notary. The Public Purchase Deeds are granted and the purchasers become the owners of the property. Once this has taken place, all documents are submitted to the corresponding Land Registry for registration.
In the event that the purchasers require a mortgage loan for the purchase, or construction, or even for a home improvement (such as swimming pool or extension), Webster Asesores are able to assist with a local bank in this respect.
As the needs of every client are different, this matter is discussed in confidentiality in their offices, so that a tailor made deal can be provided to suit your particular requirements.
Webster Asesores are able to provide suitable contracts for rentals of residential properties as well as commercial or business premises. They can also handle all tax matters regarding business and dealings with the corresponding Town Halls to obtain the relevant authorisations, trading licences, etc.
Any person with interests in Spain, such as a property owner or an investor, should grant a Last Will and Testament for assets situated in Spain. This relatively simple formality will ensure that those left behind do not have to resolve a complex legal situation.
Where property or other assets situated in Spain have been willed or bequeathed, Webster Asesores will arrange all the required formalities and registries (if appropriate). They will also ensure all duties and taxes are paid in accordance with current legislation.
Non-resident property owners are obliged to pay certain taxes. There are two taxes that have to be filed annually (except local rates or Impuesto sobre Bienes Inmuebles) - they are Wealth Tax and Income Tax which are based on the rateable value of the property.
Webster Asesores provide a comprehensive Fiscal Representation service for those clients who are non-residents, giving peace of mind in the knowledge that any taxes are being taken care of.
Capital Gains Tax
In the event of a sale of any assets in Spain, the vendor may be obliged to pay Capital Gains Tax. Their office handles matters on your behalf by arranging the payment of any tax due in this respect, or applying for the appropriate refund if the vendor has made any prior payments on account of this tax.
Depending on the nature of the business it is sometimes advisable to set up a company.
Webster Asesors arrange all the required formalities and registration of the new company in the Company Registry, with the Tax Authorities, Social Security etc.
Accountancy and work contracts
