Back to the subject. It seems to me that from 1st of Jan 13. The taxes on a new built or a second hand property will equalise to 10% call it VAT or what ever.
I felt it was grossly unfair that owners had to compete against the lower taxes of new built and at the same time Banks will not offer a mortgage to the prospective buyers. As they wanted to shift their own properties. It has to be in Spain where they set one Citizen against another.
