According to the provisional data from the National Institute of Statistics (INE) sales of Spanish property descended in July by 34.8% compared to the same month of the previous year in respect of year on year transactions. This is the fifth consecutive month where Land Registries across the country have experienced decreasing acquisitions of property. This is in spite of the government last month finally acting to seek to increase sales of new homes by reducing VAT from 8% to 4% until the end of this year.
Total transactions for July amounted to 128,097 which is 24.1% less than for July 2010. The autonomous regions that registered most sales were Andalucia, Valencia, Madrid & Cataluña.
Our Alex Radford, Solicitor & Abogado from Irwin Mitchell Abogados, the Spanish arm of Irwin Mitchell LLP commented that “these figures unfortunately confirm the housing market continues to be engulfed in a deep and profound crisis that requires urgent attention from the Government. However these are national statistics and throughout Spain there are property hotspots which remain popular and where we are acting for savvy buyers who know that now is a great time to buy and they are completing on great deals”.
