IBI is an annual property tax payable to the town hall usually by direct bank debit. IBI calculation is based on the official assessed value of the property. For a 100 sqm apartment with pool and gardens, IBI can be around €800/ year. The government tax is approximately half of the local tax. The lawyer can help with calculation and payments.
REFUSE COLLECTION TAX (BASURA)
This is a local tax payable twice a year and can be done by direct debit. In Marbella the yearly rate is around €180.
All apartments are governed by a community of owners. Fees depend on the extent of maintenance of gardens, pool and elevator. It is very important to check the financial status of the community before the purchase. The normal fee for a 100 sqm apartment in a well-maintained community is approximately €200 /month and is paid quarterly by direct debit.
