The purchase of a property of a second transmission, that is, second-hand, involves addressing the payment of the Tax on Patrimonial transfers and Documented Legal Acts , in the form of Taxable capital transfer.
The tax base is constituted by the value of the property, but the tax rate varies in function of each autonomous community, with large inequalities : for example, you could pay less tax by buying in Madrid than in Ibiza.
From Legálitas warn that it is essential that, when acquiring a property of a second transmission, the client will be careful with two aspects: to respect the value of tax and see the tax rate that corresponds to it and if there's any bonus that do you to pay a lower amount.
The tax value is the minimum value of market that marks the ministry of Economy and Finance of the autonomous community in which the property is situated, in such a way that the transfer Tax shall be paid for the purchase value.
however, since Legálitas warn that you should always respect the tax value , because, if we acquired below this value, we can face a possible procedure of checking values, in which the community will send us a settlement proposal, requesting the difference between what we paid and what we should have paid the Property transfer Tax, plus appropriate interest.
with Respect to the tax rate, in some autonomous communities in recent years there has been increasing markedly, and in others, however, it has been declining.Andalusia
For example, the Community of Andalusia provides a tax rate ranging between 8% and 10% depending on the value of the property , and set a rate of 3.5% in some cases and under some circumstances, among which we highlight that the case of under 35 years of age, people with disabilities or large families, but always remember that you have to study each case specifically to see if it fits or not to the regulations.Aragon and Asturias

however, you should pay special attention, because Balearic islands is one of the communities in which higher can be the tax on patrimonial transfers , and that is, if it is not intended to the regular home and depending on the value of purchase, can come to be paid a 11%. As a curious detail, it should be noted that the garages have a special tax.Canary islands
