What is a Non-Resident mortgage?

A non-resident Spanish 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.

7 Steps to getting a Spanish Mortgage

  1. Figure out how much you will need to borrow to buy your Spanish property. You may have a substantial amount saved, but still want to finance part of the purchase price in order to free up your funds. Other buyers will heavily depend on a mortgage to be able to afford their dream property. Not sure how much you need to borrow?

  4. Before buying a property in Spain, you will need an NIE number. We can help you obtain your Spanish tax identification number.
  5. It’s time to sign the pre-contractual documentation at the bank!
  6. The mortgage deeds are signed at your local notary along with the title deeds of the property.
