    In Spain rabid purchase taxes on nedvizhku !!!

    In January 2013, I became the owner of a bungalow in Punta Prima, a suburb of Torrevieja on the Costa Blanca. Briefly describe my acquisition: 75 residential square meters + second floor with a terrace and a place for barbecue (there is quite possible to make one more room). Total 130 squares of useful area in the new residential complex in 800 meters from the beach. I bought a bungalow through Life Spain with the help of my dearest Victoria girl. We cooperated with it (that is, I considered the options) from the summer of 2013 and she strongly recommended me to hurry with the choice, referring to possible changes in the legislation. But I wrote off her caution on the desire to quickly conclude a deal with a fastidious client (I still have one character, I would not be surprised if I was the most picky in the whole history of Life Spain :)! And then-bang! And with 1 January 2013, the government canceled the existing benefits and increased taxes on 3%, it was 8% + 1%, it became 10% + 1% and I overpaid a tidy sum for my bungalow ((I buy it in autumn for the same 300 thousand, I Would save 9 000 euros on VAT !!!
