Buying a car in Spain

Postby wigmaker » Sat Apr 05, 2008 1:47 pm

How much does it cost to have the documents (log book etc) put in to your name after you have bought a car in Spain? Is it straight forward?

It depends on the value of the car.
If you are buying from a dealer the costs are usually included in the sale price.

Took us months to get the paperwork back from the gestoria but the price was included in the purchase price as we had bought it through a hire car company.

If you are buying privately, make sure who pays for it is agreed beforehand as we ended up having a real 'fight' with a couple buying our car when we got to the gestoria as the cost was over 400€ (from memory) and then they tried to get out of paying.
