EXPENSES RELATED TO THE MORTGAGE LOAN:

Since 2019, the Real Estate Credit Law has introduced important news in the distribution of expenses related to the mortgage deed, between the bank (lender) and the client (borrower). Now, most of the expenses must be paid by the bank.

The bank pays:

The expenses of Notary, Registry, Management fee and the Tax of Documented Legal Acts (AJD).

The buyer pays:

1.- The Appraisal of the property. In order to get the mortgage loan, an independent appraisal of the property you want to purchase, needs to be done. The appraisal result may also influence in the amount of loan granted by the bank.

2.- Mortgage Opening Fee (percentage that depends on each bank; It usually varies from 1% to 2% of the mortgage loan’s amount)

3.- Home and/or Life insurance. The bank may require the borrower to contract a House insurance, Life insurance or Payment protection insurance.
