When purchasing a property in Spain, it is always recommended to hire a local lawyer who speaks Hungarian and can help you in all the stages of the purchase-sale transaction.
At Lukentum we cooperate with several well-known law firms with extensive professional experience. We will be happy to introduce one of them to you in case you haven’t chosen a lawyer yet.
The lawyer will offer you a free consultation during which he or she will inform you about the services and guide you through each step of the purchase-sale transaction.
It is not difficult to finance the purchase of a house in Alicante, Murcia or Almería. Before you purchase the property, we will show you several Spanish and Hungarian banks that have the best offers and conditions. Lukentum will give you advice and assist you in all the necessary documentation and administration.
Bank charges associated with mortgage loans The main fees in relation to a mortgage are the following:
Costs before obtaining a mortgage The bank evaluates the property that is to be mortgaged. The fee of this procedure in Spain is around €200, but it varies depending on the value of the property.
Fees of obtaining a mortgage
Formalization fee: It is a percentage applied when the loan is granted; it significantly influences the total cost of the loan, and it is counted in the calculation of the APR. This commission in Spain is generally 1% of the total sum of the loan, but it can vary significantly from bank to bank.
Tax of documented legal transactions: this is 0.5% of the total guaranteed sum (the loan, its costs and the interest). It is approximately 1% of the capital.
Notary and registration fee: This is the official rate defined by the Spanish law. Its ammount directly depends on the sum of the loan, but usually it is around €1000 in the case of properties.
Administrative costs: In Spain once the contract is signed, it is reported at the tax office in order to calculate the tax and get the property registered at the Property Registry. Its fee is approximately €150.
Subrogation fee: This commission is charged by the bank if there is an existing mortgage on the property and the buyer assumes it. This is also around 1%, but in some cases it may be less.
