Unfortunately, most non-residents owning property is Spain are not aware that they are liable for taxes in Spain every year, even if they are not living permanently in the country.

Under Spanish law non-resident property owners are required to appoint a public prosecutor representative in Spain to arrange the payment of the taxes levied on their property.

This service is also recommended to those property owners who are residents to ensure the correct property taxes are paid on time thus avoiding any future penalty from the tax administration
