What costs are involved in buying a property in Spain?

The purchase taxes may vary significantly if you buy a new or a resale property in Andalucia.

On a new property a buyer will pay 10% IVA PLUS 1,50% Transfer Tax (AJDO) while when buying a resale depending on its purchase price the taxes maybe 8-9 or 10% of the purchase price.
