Expenses that are not taken into account when buying a property in Mallorca.

We all look forward to the moment when the keys are handed over and we can finally enjoy our new home.

But sometimes the rush can make us skip some important steps that perhaps we have not taken into account. In this article we would like to give you some reminders in case you have missed them, for example:

Many people make accounts around the mortgage, but they forget that it is necessary to have a little corner of money saved to be able to face the surprises or extra expenses that we can find. To make an approximation of what that amount is, it is recommended that it is approximately 10% so that there is no lack of resources when it comes to finding ourselves with:

  • Valuation of the property. If we decide to apply for a mortgage, the bank will ask us to have the property appraised in order to know what percentage of financing it will grant us depending on the value.
  • Notary fees. These costs will vary depending on the price of the property. In the case of the deeds, we will have to pay the purchase deed and the mortgage deed.
  • Agency. The bank's agency will take care of all the bureaucratic paperwork for taxes, among others.
  • In addition, we should also take into account the taxes that we may encounter depending on the characteristics of the property.

When it comes to buying a house in Mallorca there are two types:

  • New housing. The general tax levied on a new home is VAT at 10% of the price of the home.
  • Used property. In this case, the tax used is the ITP (Impuesto sobre Transmisiones Patrimoniales) and it may depend on the Autonomous Community where you are, but it normally varies between 5% and 10% of the price of the property.

In addition, both cases are subject to AJD (Acto Jurídico Documentado which represents 1% of the purchase price, and 1% of the mortgage).

Buying a flat in Mallorca, or a house, can be a risky option if you do not go through an estate agent, as a private individual does not always have all the necessary knowledge, nor the time, to make sure that everything is in order. Contact your estate agent in Mallorca.
