Procedures that you must carry out when you buy housing in Spain if you are a foreigner

The economic recovery of Spain has made it possible for buyers from other countries such as the United Kingdom, Belgium, Holland or Norway to have their eyes fixed on the houses on the Mediterranean coast.

Buying a property in Spain if you are a foreigner has its peculiarities, although in all places the steps to follow are usually similar, the exact protocols and documentation change from country to country.

Issue the NIE.

The NIE is the so-called foreign identity number, a code that facilitates the identification of non-nationals in Spain. It is an essential requirement to carry out any economic transaction. You must request it in the General Directorate of the Police, it is also possible to carry out this bureaucratic process outside Spain through the Consulate.

Open an account in a bank in Spain.
