Today we bring you the fifth podcast recorded with Maria de Castro of Costa Luz Lawyers answering your legal questions.
In this episode we cover topics such as:
- Can someone who is not an owner in a community be the president?
- What paperwork do estate agents need to have regarding the properties they have for sale, and are there fines applicable if they don't?
- If me or my husband pass away what taxes would the other person have to pay? The property is in joint names.
- We bought our house here in my name. We got married a couple of years ago but did not change the escritura. As far as I am concerned we are joint owners. Is this correct?
- For a new urbanization, at what point do we start paying community fees considering everything is far from finshed?
- Is it true that foreigners selling a house in Spain must pay a tax of 33 per cent of the profit from the sale?
- My apartment was broken in to last June and I'm still waiting for the insurance claim to be settled. What can I do?
- How long can I live in a property without the licences in place?
- Living permanently in Spain, do I need to change my UK (European) driving licence to a Spanish one?
- I have my escritura but my property is not properly registered. Will this be a problem when I come to sell it?
