A friend of mine sold his apartment in Feb 2012, he paid all taxes due before moving back to the UK.  Sadly in January he died, his family have now received a bill from the Ayuntamiento for nearly €400, through the Inmobilliria he used to sell, asking for payment of IBI for the period  Jun - Oct  2012 which is after they sold.

As I am living in Spain have been trying to help out with this problem, the imobilliria said it has to be paid and to pay them, which I have no intention of doing, the Ayuntamiento said it should be paid, but nobody can tell my why, when the propery was sold.

Anyone esle had a similar problem with payment of IBI after the property has been sold.

Whoever owns the property on 1st January is responsible for the IBI for the coming year. The solicitor handling the sale on behalf of the buyers should have retained that sum to cover it.

But apparently he did not do so.

I  believe Bobaol is absolutely correct, however, just like in the UK it has been the ‘normal practice’ with the properties I  ( and my son also) have bought and sold for the bill to be proportioned for the period each has owned the property.
If the solicitor failed to make that stipulation in the contract then I guess the seller in this case is responsible. 
(I have said several times I have never used a solicitor in our transactions, so we have never relied on one to get it right)
I don’t know if you are aware that the seller is also responsible for paying the plus valir tax, unless that too has been modified in the contract.

the 1st of january or we would have had to pay the i.b.i. for 2013.
