Gifting property, or money


Whilst some property owners may find it unnecessary, or even pointless, to hire a lawyer on gifting property (or money), it is strongly recommended to avoid tax and legal problems. This procedure involves a full conveyance service (from a legal point of view it's exactly the same as if you were selling the property).


The generous tax breaks available in Andalusia, and in several other regions of Spain, on gifting property (or money) do not operate automatically, and require the input of a seasoned lawyer to organize the procedure. Hire a lawyer and ensure you pay no gift tax, or as little as is legally possible.


Our conveyance fee is tax-deductible on selling the property.
