Does anyone have experience of buying a townhouse that stretches over two streets? The property I am interested in is being sold as one but has two sets of title deeds.  What would this mean in terms of taxes etc?  Would this mean two sets of IBI/garbage charges even though it would be being used as one dwelling?  I am yet to ask these questions to a lawyer (I haven't put an offer in yet) but was just wondering if anyone out there had information about this.

Thank you!

One of my properties has an address street and house number for the rear which also has the entry to my garage, the front entrance has another number and if you like street name, I have only one deeds and pay only one set of taxes.

Two seperate deeds means two lots of taxes (IBI). Only one deed does not necessarily mean only one lot of taxes though, as you can have more than one property listed on the same deed. I have one deed only for an apartment and a garage in the same building; the apartment & garage have seperate catastral references though, therefore seperate IBI bills.

Chilipadi, if this property is being offered by an estate agent, the agent is legally obliged to hold all the relevant information - you don't need to ask (pay) a lawyer at this stage. If it is being offered privately, the seller should be happy to provide the same information. If they are hesitant or unforthcoming when you ask - walk away.

Do bear in mind that whilst the agent should be able to answer your questions easily enough regarding the IBI / basura etc., they are only interested in selling the property, so will not necessarily interpret this information or explain anything in any great detail (even if they understand the situation themselves), so do proceed with caution. You will need an independent lawyer (not one recommended by the agent) if you do wish to make an offer and take it further. It's very common in Spain for large family homes to have been divided up between family members - or for adjoining properties to have been combined, added to, altered etc. etc., quite often totally illegally. Since such properties were kept witin the same family, they got away with it (and/or because they're Spansih, of course) but once it changes hands (especially into the open arms of an unsuspecting foreigner) that's when the problems can arise.

Be careful...and good luck with your property hunting!
