You may be selling or purchasing a property in Spain or the Canary Islands and you need to travel to complete your purchase at the Notary. At the time of selling / purchasing you thought that you wouldn't need to give a Power of Attorney as you would be able to travel and sign in Notary yourself. You are now unable to be available on the arranged date so have limited options.
One option is that you could instruct us to arrange the Power of Attorney for you. We can instruct a Spanish Solicitor to draw up the Power in English and Spanish naming whoever you want to give the Power to, normally an employee at the Real Estate Agency that you are dealing with. This can limit the Power to the purchase or sale of the property or can include setting up direct debits for utilities etc.
Once we have received back the Power of Attorney we will liaise with you and choose a Notary for you to sign in front of, there is at least one Notary in every major town in the UK. Once you have signed in front of the Notary in the UK the Notary will send the Power to the Spanish Embassy for the Apostille to be attached to legalize the Power of Attorney. The Power of Attorney will then be sent to whoever you are giving the Power to and they will use the Power in the Notary in Spain or Canary Islands to complete the purchase or sale on your behalf.
To prepare the paperwork we would need photocopies of your N.I.E. Certificate or passport if you do not have an N.I.E. and the same for the person or persons who you are giving the Power to. We would also require any one of the following - Copia Simple, photocopy of Escritura or a Notia Simple
The Cost of this Service is £460. This does not include the cost of signing at the Notary in the U.K. or the cost of the Apostille
