If you're planning to buy a property in Andalucía now could be a good time to start looking seriously, as some of the costs of buying a property have recently been reduced - for a limited time only!
Property Transfer Tax
From April 28th 2021 to 31st December 2021 Property Transfer Tax (PTT) in Andalucía has been reduced across the board to 7%. Previously PTT was applied on a sliding scale depending on the value of the property - before the 28th of April you would have had to pay anywhere between 8% and 10% of the property sale price. This would mean, for example, that if you were to buy a property worth €250,000 you would previously have had to pay €20,000 but up until the end of this year you will now only be required to pay €17,500 - a saving of €2,500.
Alongside the changes to PTT, Stamp Duty in Andalucía has also been reduced from 1.5% to 1.2%. It's worth noting, however, that Stamp Duty doesn't apply to resale properties, but it is applicable for off-plan, new-build properties.
