It is advantageous to hire a real estate agent who is always at your side. The regulations on Mallorca are different when buying a property than the regulations you know from Germany. The processes can be very time-consuming and tedious. Furthermore, you may ask your advisor to find the right properties for you without spending hours on the internet. An agent usually also has access to off-market and exclusive properties that are not allowed to be offered publicly on the internet.

Of course, you are free to choose how many real estate advisors you would like to contact. However, we advise you not to use more than 2 or 3 estate agents. With us, you can save even that, as we cooperate with most of the estate agents on the island. Among others, we have scouts who will only try to find your dream property. Even if you don’t find it on our website, we can efficiently support you in your search.

Yes, we advise every client to hire a lawyer (abogado) for additional legal security. For drafting contracts, due diligence or other Spanish bureaucracy, a lawyer is very helpful. Spain offers a very high level of legal certainty in a property purchase, but without a lawyer unexpected costs can arise if the buyer has not followed certain processes or documents have not been checked.
The cost of a lawyer varies depending on the services you use. Most lawyers charge 1% of the purchase price.

Yes, you can get mortgages in Spain, they are very popular as the interest rates are very low and they can also have tax advantages. You have the possibility to get up to 70% of the appraised value financed. We work with a company that specialises in handling mortgages and other financial products in Spain. You can get the best banking conditions through the service provider.

An NIE (Número de Identidad de Extranjero) number is a Spanish alien identity number. All foreigners who have professional, social or economic interests in Spain receive a foreigner identity number. The NIE number is an important document that must always be provided when applying for a visa, completing formalities, opening a bank account, signing various contracts (rent, mobile phone), employment contracts, etc. This number also serves as a tax number. This number also serves as a tax number (NIF - Número de Identificación Fiscal).

You can apply for the NIE number at a Spanish consulate, at a police station (Dirección General de la Policía y de la Guardia Civil) or through an intermediary (Gestor). But we can also help you here.

The seller undertakes not to sell the desired object to third parties for an agreed period of time, normally approx. 1 week to 3 months (different from case to case). As a rule, an option fee is paid. During this period, the buyer has the opportunity to purchase the property at the purchase price. As a rule, 10% of the purchase price must be paid in advance. This sum is credited towards the purchase. If the seller cannot or does not want to sell the property for certain reasons, for example because the seller was able to sell the property at a higher price, the seller usually has to repay the option fee and also pay compensation. This depends on the contract agreement.

In order to ensure an entry in the land register, a notarial certification must take place. This is called an “escritura” in Spanish.
The notarial deed contains a description of the property, the purchase price and the payment modalities. A notarial deed of sale is also very important in order to have the security of not taking on any debts (encumbrances) from the previous owner. The notary sends the notarisation to the property registry by email or fax to ensure legal certainty. After paying the land transfer tax, the new owner can be registered in the land register.

An additional 8 to 12 % of the purchase price should be calculated for ancillary purchase costs. Incidental purchase costs include 10 % value added tax (IVA) for new buildings and 8 to 11 % land transfer tax for resale properties.

The commission is usually paid by the seller, in the amount of 5-6% plus VAT. In exceptional cases, the commission can also be paid by the buyer, but this will be communicated to you in good time.

When you buy a property, you have to pay VAT (IVA) or land transfer tax (ITP).


Bei einem erstmaligen Kauf einer Immobilie wird Mehrwertsteuer entrichtet. Bei einer Immobilie mit Garagenstellplätzen müssen Sie vom Kaufpreis 10% versteuern. Bei einem Kauf von einem Grundstück oder Gewerbeimmobilien belaufen sich die Steuern auf 21%.


Seit dem Jahr 2020 beträgt die Stempelsteuer 1,5% und fällt bei dem Erwerb von Erstwohnimmobilien an. Jedoch für den Zeitraum vom 26.1.21 bis 31.12.21 gibt es eine Steuererleichterung von 95% aufgrund der Covid-19 Pandemie. Somit würde nur der Steuersatz von 0,075% anfallen.


Bei Wiederverkaufsimmobilien fällt Grunderwerbssteuer (ITP) an. Dieser Steuersatz ist wie folgt gestaffelt:
Bis 400.000€ fallen 8% vom Kaufpreis an die versteuert werden.
Zwischen 400.001€ und 600.000€ fallen 9% an die vom Kaufpreis versteuert werden.
Zwischen 600.001€ und 1.000.000€ fallen 10% an die vom Kaufpreis versteuert werden.
Über 1.000.000€ fallen 11% an die vom Kaufpreis versteuert werden.
Nachdem die Eigentumsübertragung stattgefunden hat, muss die Grunderwerbssteuer innerhalb von 30 Tagen bezahlt werden.
Wir empfehlen jedoch einen Steuerberater zu beauftragen.

Die Grundsteuer (IBI- Impuesto sobre Bienes Inmuebles) wird auf den Wert von Land-/ und Stadtgrundstücken erhoben und auf der Basis des Katasterwertes kalkuliert. Die Grundsteuer wird jährlich an die jeweilige Gemeinde entrichtet. Diese liegt bei erschlossenen Grundstücken spanienweit zwischen 0,4% und 1,1% des Katasterwertes. Jedoch ist dies immer von der zuständigen Gemeinde abhängig. Bei unerschlossenen Grundstücken beträgt die Steuer zwischen 0,3% und 0,9%.


Wenn die Immobilie selbst genutzt wird oder auch nur zur Feriennutzung dient, zahlt man eine Einkommenssteuer (IRPF – Impuestos sobre la Renta de la Persona Física). Die Steuer beträgt 19% auf 1,1% des Katasterwertes.


Nichtresidenten zahlen zwischen 0,2% und 2,5% Vermögenssteuer. Die Vermögenssteuer für Residenten auf den Balearen liegt bei 0,28 bis 3,45%.
