There are 4 main costs of purchasing a commercial property in Spain. These are tax (VAT, Stamp Duty or Property Transfer Tax as applicable), legal fees, land registry fees and notary fees.

The lease would be governed by the Spanish Lease Act (Ley de Arrendamiento Urbano). This legislation does not cover rent reviews.
