Having purchased our first property in April and only being able to visit last week i would be grateful for an idiots guide on what i should be doing to comply with the necessary laws, taxes etc. Water and electricity are in hand, it was suggested i take a trip to the Town Hall to discuss sorting any taxes, bins charges etc. Obviously i don't want to miss anything.

Thank you in advance.

Split from the Non Resident Property Tax thread. Sam

Here is buying a property in short from my experience from just completing the process as a Spanish Resident

1. Pay & Sign at Notario
2. Limit of 30days to declare the purchase and pay ITP at ATC (Agencia Tributaria Canaria)
3. Take the tax receipt and pay to register the property in your name at the Registro de la Propiedad
4. Notify the Community President of your details for paying community fees
5. Visit the Ayuntamiento for Empadronamiento at the new address
6. Setup a DirectDebit for IBI & Basura at the Ayuntamiento (Liable to be Paid by whoever owns the property on 1st January each year, so you need to setup a DDebit to start next year)

Water/Electricity varies according to situation.
If you are non-resident then there is Non-resident tax payable to AEAT and declared on an annual basis as part of the IRPF (Tax return) but I am not liable for this so don't have first hand experience.

As a footnote to all of this, I highly recommend you register online for a "certificado electronico" and make an appointment at the AEAT to verify your identity which allows you to then identify yourself online and do most painful government paperwork online!
