As a non-resident is there any way round having to pay capital gains tax on selling a house in Spain even when I would be buying another, more expensive one also in Spain.

I can’t think of any way, though becoming resident should get you off the hook. This can open up a tax can of worms, mind, depending on where else you are claiming residency!

Note that the Spanish Government quietly put up CGT this year from 19pc to 21pc.

There aren’t going to be too many people paying CGT if they bought in the last 8~10 years and are selling now, once prices are adjusted for inflation!
