 Hi All.

Not sure if anyone is interested but for the last 4 years I have posted End of year costing for me as a Non Resident owner in Spain.

I hope this will be of help to others that may be thinking of Purchasing in Spain.

Today I received my end of year tax bill from my solicitor ready for payment on or before 15 December 2012.

With only 2 more bills to come in November 2 monthly Water and Decembers Electric. I have averaged these out to formulate my end of year expenditure as a Non Resident owner.

My house will have been occupied 132 days during 2012

My house is a 3 double bedroom property with a pool with response alarm provided by Securitas. It is what I would call frontline with only a short walk to the Beach.. Longer walk back as it is on a Hill.

Total costs give or take a few Euros was €3329.64 at today’s rate of exchange = £2685.19.

My 2 largest bills over any year are for pool cleaning and The Securitas Response Alarm. If I took them away from the total my total expenditure would be. £1751.19p for the year This amount includes Electric, Water, Bank Charges, IBI, Solicitors fees, Non-residence Tax with a small amount of income tax. House and Contents insurance.

 Last Year 2011 Total expenditure was €3157.14 @ the then exchange rate of 1.15 Total cost was £2745.34.

So perhaps because of the difference in exchange rate it cost me approx €60 less this year 2012 to run my House.

And what a time I have had this year. Bring on 2013 it can only get better.

See you in the Sun and always remember to keep the sun in Ya Heart.

I hope this gives some idea as to running a property in Spain as a non-resident for 132 days.
