Hello daisy and welcome to EOS.

It is not possible to answer your question. You need to contact your own utilities company which will each have its own disconnection policy and charges.

There are now more than 50 electricity companies active in Spain's electricity market. There are a total of 15 Basin Agencies in Spain.

Warning do not get the water or electric cut of as it will cost around €500 to have them reinstated...the prospective buyers will insist they are reconnected by you before they pay for the property.

Yes, windtalker is right. It costs a lot to get the utilities put back on. And if your solicitor does it for you it would probably add more like €800 to the bill. The buyers will have to pay to get it put in their name anyway so I doubt they'd want to pay the connection fees as well.

Hi thanks for reply, the only thing i am worried about is as we are in the uk anyone could use the house and we would end up paying bills,the house could take a long time to sell. So would it be beter to stop paying standing charge and offer a contribution to get the utilities reinstated.

Hi Daisy

That’s a slightly different story. If it’s squatters you fear and not the costs of standing charges why not get an electrician to disconnect the electricity and remove the trip switches. Also, switch off the water at the mains, remove the mains tap handle, and disconnect the inlet pipe.
