How will buying a property will impact the non lucrative Spain visa renewal?


Just about to start non lucrative visa process. Basic question. Want to buy property ASAP. How does this impact assets on the non lucrative Spain visa renewal, if at all?


These are the answers of some Facebook group members:

“If you spend €500k or more, you (can) switch to the golden visa. And if less, it doesn’t seem to count towards anything so make sure you have sufficient funds once you’ve paid for the property.””

“No impact at all.”

“It won’t but don’t spend it all bc you’ll still need the Iprem (or the required renewal funds)”

“Buying property and ASAP shouldn’t be in the same sentence. Take your time. You are moving so enjoy the journey find your forever home. It’s easy to buy harder to sell.”

In conclusion, according to Spainguru Facebook group members, purchasing property while going through the non lucrative visa Spain renewal process typically does not have a direct impact on the renewal itself. However, it’s essential to consider the financial aspects, as buying property can be a significant expense. If the property investment exceeds €500k, you may have the option to switch to the golden visa, but if it’s less, it generally doesn’t count towards the renewal requirements. Regardless of property purchase, it’s advisable to ensure you have sufficient funds to meet the necessary renewal criteria, such as the Iprem or other required financial resources. Additionally, the members emphasize taking your time when buying property, as it’s a significant decision and should align with your long-term plans.
