To obtain a Real Estate residency for investors in Spain Is it necessary to have bought the property/properties before the application?
If you have not formalised the purchase of the property/properties a “Contrato de Arras”, or similar, may be filed together with a certificate from the Spanish financial institution confirming that the agreed amount as per the “pre-contract” has been deposited.
“Contrato de Arras” (Earnest Money Contract) is a private document whereby the buyer of a property delivers a certain amount of money to the seller to guarantee that it will honour its side of the contract, meaning the future purchase and sale.
Considering that the law does not state any “certain amount” to be deposited, it should be around 10% of the whole price of the property/properties but, ultimately, it is up to what both parties may agree on.
The main purpose of such a contract is to protect the legal interests of both the buyer and the seller: if the buyer breaches the contract through his own fault, the seller can take that amount as compensation. However, if it is the seller who breaches the “Contract of Deposit” through his own fault, the buyer is entitled to claim double the amount deposited.
Those who wish to acquire the Investor Visa Spain through this way must make a “significant investment” in Spain. This can be any of the following
- 500.000 € in properties.
- 1.000.000 € in investment funds.
- 1.000.000 € in deposit guarantee funds of a Spanish bank or financial institution.
- 1.000.000 € in shares of a Spanish company which has genuine activity.
- 2.000.000 € in Spanish public debt.
- Set up a business project to be considered of general interest.
Investment made by a company
If the investment is made by a company, which is domiciled abroad and not in a tax haven*, the applicant must hold, directly or indirectly, the majority of voting rights and the power to name or dismiss the majority of the members of its management body. By complying these requirements, it may acquire The Investor Visa Spain
Investment made by a couple
Another way to obtain an investor Visa in Spain is if an investment is made by a married couple in joint ownership or similar, but the amounts indicated above must be doubled. Otherwise, only one person can apply and the other can obtain the visa as a family member of the applicant.
