Tax Consequences of Divorce and Property Distribution in Spain

mortgagedefaultspain

Q. I am in the process of going through a divorce in the UK and we have a property in Spain. What are tax implications of transferring the property in Spain into one of our names only, as per the divorce agreement?

A. The most tax efficient manner to achieve this outcome is to draft a deed in a public notary’s office to bring a formal end to the co-ownership of the property and by which the co-owners can expressly confer the entire ownership to either spouse, with the other partner or spouse paying the equivalent amount in monetary terms. In those cases involving the enforcement of divorce agreements, the amount of the financial compensation for the interest in the property will be as stated in the divorce agreement.

Documentation Tax

The tax applicable to such operations is known as AJD (Actos Jurídicos Documentados) and is equal to 1.5% of the value of the property in the Valencia region, for example. In tax terms therefore, this is a great deal preferable to the outright purchase by one partner or spouse of the interest belonging to the other partner or spouse, which would result in the payment of a 10% tax on the value of the part of the property purchased.

Mortgages

It should be remembered that the dissolution of a co-ownership can only be carried-out between co-owners of a property and may not involve third parties. Also, in those cases where there is still a mortgage on the property, the co-owner that is relinquishing their interest must take great care to obtain the approval of the bank that has conferred the mortgage. For if the bank does not approve the assumption by one co-owner of responsibility for repayment of the entire mortgage the spouse or partner relinquishing their interest in the property may find themselves with no property but a continuing obligation to repay the bank.

    Overall it was great. Rosa always answered all questions asked and provided clear, concise and well explained answers.


    When there was a delay in responding she did offer an apology which was appreciated. Rosa always instilled a sense of confidence that she knew exactly what was going on, what I was asking, and what the applicable law was.


    When not a Spanish local and dealing with her remotely, this provided great comfort in a sensitive matter.

    From our initial meeting right through to my ultimate divorce (with no unpleasant surprises the entire duration of the entire process), he immediately responded to my many enquiries, always had mine and my daughter's best interests at the forefront of any considerations and was well worth every penny of his extremely reasonable fee.


    Excellent value for money, totally approachable and very professional and understanding. I highly recommend him and will continue to retain his services for other matters in the future.

    From the outset, Rosa was extremely professional, approachable, efficient and competent. Her level of English is extraordinary, something very much appreciated as it made life easier for me during an inherently difficult time.


    Her correspondence was always relevant, detailed, simply and clearly explained and expressed. Rosa was kindly, matter of fact, calm, patient and always reassuring.

    Her pro-active, intelligent, thoughtful and knowledgeable advice helped very much during a particularly delicate and worrying stage of the process.

    He helped me not to put certain points in my divorce, that I later may have regretted. Often in haste a person will ask for or give certain concessions that later will be inappropriate.


    I was fortunately stopped from doing this by my lawyer Pedro.


    Pedro has a professional, helpful and friendly approach.
