Obtaining a Mortgage in Spain


Mortgages are available in Spain, although the lending criteria have become stricter. As with most mortgages the two main criteria are the property details and the buyer’s financial situation.

In Spain the amount given on a mortgage differs on the type of land the property is built upon:

As with solicitors, there are banks which specialise in certain types of property and it is important to use the right bank for either rustic/inland property or coastal/urban property.

When you have found the property you wish to buy, the bank will send a Tasador (valuer) to the property to do a valuation. The value calculated is based on the quality of build, the size and location of the property, and its legal status. This is called the “Tasacion” and is the document the bank uses to make you an offer. This process usually takes around 3 weeks.

Now that the property market is steadily improving, more banks are lending again, which has increased competition and led to some very attractive deals becoming available to clients of Mortgage Direct.

At present, mortgages up to 70%* are available to non-residents and 80% to residents. There are some special deals above 80% available to young first-time-buyer resident clients.

Again, we recommend that you contact Mortgage Direct if you have questions relating to whether you would qualify for a mortgage, how much you would qualify for and what conditions may be available to you.

* mortgages are based on the lower of purchase price or valuation.
