Below you will find information and an example of calculation of a standard mortgage inquiry in Spain. We outline this as a guide to create a realistic picture about possibilities for financing in Spain to avoid any surprises.
Banks in Spain finance up to 70% of the bank property valuation. The most important aspect here is that you are at the time of application of the mortgage not resident in Spain. The property you purchase is seen as a second residence. In order to limit the financial risks the banks valuation is often kept low and this makes a real difference to the market value and purchase price. This way you can keep in mind that about 60% of the purchase price is to be invested from your own resources and that you can borrow approximately 40%, providing that your fixed income is sufficient.
The bank would make a mortgage loan up to 35% of your regular income, after the deduction of the fixed expenses and taking into account your family situation.
The maximum age for a mortgage in Spain is 70 years, there are exceptional cases where the age limit can be extended.
If the property is being purchased together with your partner, the same documents are also required from your partner.
