An extract from the register of property rights gives a full description of the real estate and is paid by the buyer. Approximate cost € 10- € 25.
Notary La notaría
Expenses to consider when buying a house, both new and used, are payments for notarial acts performed by a notary. Notary fees are regulated by the state and are the same in all Spanish autonomies for the respective services.
The costs of executing a sales contract with a notary (la escritura pública de compraventa) depend on the price of the property. For example, for an apartment of € 100,000, a notary has to pay € 850, and for housing worth € 250,000, a notary is entitled to € 1,000.
Registration of ownership of El Registro de la Propiedad
Also payable is the registration of the contract, certified by a notary, by making an entry about it in the register of property rights. The fees for this are set by law and directly depend on the price of the property and are € 400- € 650.
