A non-resident mortgage refers to a lending agreement that is offered to individuals who are not a fiscal resident in Spain. As a non-resident in Spain, you will typically be offered a mortgage of 70% of the purchase price of the property. (Residents can expect to be able to get around 80%.) The longest term you will be able to borrow for is between 20 to 25 years.
Getting a mortgage as a non-resident in Spain can be difficult, that is why we recommend you seek professional help from HomeFinance Spain.
Fixed rate mortgages are by far the most popular option for non-residents. As fixed rate mortgage rates help lenders offset some of the risks associated with lending to those who are not fiscal residents in Spain.
Non-residents can also expect to pay a 3% retention fee if they sell their Spanish property. Click here for more information on the 3% retention fee.
