In the UK we all have to cough up for the council tax so what I need to know is - What is the equivalent of this down on the Costa del sol?
I would also like to know who has to pay this if I decide to rent out long term.
As a non resident property owner you also have to pay a notional income tax and wealth tax based upon the rateable value of the property. If you are renting you should also pay tax on the income from the rental on a monthly basis
If your property is on an urbanisation you will also have to pay community fees for the upkeep of the communal areas.
As the owner of the property you would be responsible for all of these payments which should be included in the rental.
On a long term rental you would normally only pass on electricity, water and telephone charges to the tenant.
