My wife and I bought a property in Comares late last year.  When we will get out there next is unclear given the current Covid-19 crisis. Hopefully sometime in the summer.

I am seeking advice on payment of IBI.  Does the Town Hall send out IBI invoices and if so typically when? When is the IBI required to be paid? Does it have to be paid in person or can it be paid by bank transfer?

I am assuming all correspondence will be sent to our Comares address but can it be requested electronically, that is by e-mail.

Steve.

Hi Steven

It is 14 years since we bought so I can't remember but your solicitor should let you know, I think ours sorted it out for us. 

Regards

Victoria

Surely the IBI is an annual charge? Our solicitor arranged payment of the initial IBI, when we bought last year, am expecting a charge this year, would also like to know when/how this is levied

IBI is issued in June time and you've  till September to pay it. Normally for new purchase solicitors setup  direct debit for you  but it takes few months to change ownership in paper work records. You should receive a paper bill to your address in spain in June if not get in touch with your local town hall at the end of June  and pay it your self.

My lawyer sorted the property tax and the payment is deducted from my bank account automatically August 12th.  Usually in Spain direct debit is setup for everything.  I received a piece of paper after they deducted the payment.  So watch your Spanish bank account this summer, you will more than likely see the payment deducted.
