Deciding on budget/price range

Traditionally in the Canary Islands, and Tenerife estate agents all entities will advise you to allow for approximately 10% on top of the cost of the property. These costs are distributed to the following areas:

  • Legal & conveyance fees
  • Local Authority search fees
  • Stamp duty
  • Notary Fees
  • Land Registry Fees
  • Commissions from Estate Agent(s)
  • Water contracts

Mortgage requirements.

When setting your budget/price range, it may be that you wish to consider mortgage services, in our experience purchasing a property and getting a mortgage a go hand in hand.

Our Partners are a firm of professional independent chartered accountants and advisors and as different banks and institutions in Spain will require certain documents over and above the list laid out below, the requirements below you will most definitely need in order to continue, AFTER Invest in Tenerife CLS Group Ltd has provided you with a simulation of mortgage.

N.I.E. CERTIFICATE: all non residents of Spain and the Canary Islands require this number and certification before they are able to proceed. Invest In Tenerife are able to assist in obtaining this on the clients behalf.


Deciding on your all important Criteria.
