Forced Property Sale

Who is this Service for?

A common problem faced by separating couples is, what to do with the foreign holiday home. Sometimes the couple decide to put the property in the name of one, while the other takes an equivalent property elsewhere. On other occasions, agreement is not possible, and one co-owner wishes to divest themselves of an asset that they maybe they no longer use. However, without the agreement of their co-owner, this is complex. A forced sale is possible, but expensive.

What does this service consist of?

  • Initial discussion with an English-speaking lawyer specialising in property law to determine the co-owners specific situation and advice on the options available
  • Attempt negotiation with the other co-owner to try to reach an agreement to sell the property, it being in everyone’s financial interest
  • Upon failure to reach agreement, legal proceedings can be initiated to obtain a Court Order to force a sale of the property at public auction
  • A public auction is to be avoided as a very low bid can potentially take the property – potentially by the other co-owner - which is why we recommend that your lawyer attends the auction on your behalf to monitor the auction.

Property Sale 3% Reclaim

Who is this Service for?

When a non-resident owner of a property in Spain sells their property, the purchaser is obliged by law to deposit 3% of the purchase price directly with the Spanish tax authority (AETA) in lieu of payment of all taxes due on the property ownership. So, this is the Spanish government’s way of ensuring that vendors pay Capital Gains tax and also any non-resident property tax. While this service is frequently offered by unqualified individuals in the property sector, it can often be a mistake to rely on them as the procedure is rather more complex than they may have anticipated and requires a good understanding of taxation and of course a high level of Spanish.

What does this service consist of?

  • Initial discussion with an English-speaking lawyer specialising in property law to determine the amount that may be reclaimed
  • Submission of any missing returns to the AEAT, if necessary
  • Submission of reclaim of 3% withholding tax
  • Payment of the relevant amount to the vendor’s bank account

Property Title Transfer

Who is this Service for?

For those who wish to terminate a co-ownership – either as a result of the termination of a personal relationship or the end of a commercial buy-to-let business partnership, the ownership of a property must be dealt with carefully to ensure that no inadvertent costs are incurred. Usually if the reason for the need to transfer the title of a property is a result of a divorce, then following the appropriate procedure, this can be achieved without attracting taxation and other costs. This may not be the case where an unmarried couple separate, or in the case of the termination of a commercial partnership

What does this service consist of?

  • Initial analysis of the specific circumstances of the ownership and the relationship between the co-owners
  • Arrange any documentation required, including foreign divorce agreements
  • Prepare the property deeds for the transfer of the title
  • Attend the transfer of the title in the public notary, on behalf of or together with the co-owners
  • Ensure any taxes or charges are paid and the new title is registered with the land registry.

  • Assistance to enlist appropriate real estate agencies.
  • Review of the Tenancy Agreement and signature.
