WE HAVE UPDATED OUR GUIDE ON SPANISH POWERS OF ATTORNEY
We continue to assist many clients who need to appoint someone to represent them in Spain in relation to the purchase or sale of property over there. To make sure we provide the best possible assistance, we have made some updated on our guide to granting a power of attorney for use in Spain.
Here is a reminder about the content of the guide:
Buying and selling property in Spain can be challenging at times. Spanish legal and administrative procedures can differ substantially from those in the UK and sometimes there can be a language barrier too. On top of that, it might not be convenient to travel back and forth to Spain in order to complete the process.
For all these reasons, many people choose to appoint advisors in Spain (usually, lawyers) to act as their attorneys, oversee the process and sign the relevant documentation. If you are thinking of doing this, you will need to grant a power of attorney, which will need to comply with very specific formalities for it to be accepted in Spain. This is something we can help you with.
Our Spanish Department deals with this type of enquiry on daily basis and will be happy to assist with your power of attorney needs. We recommend you to read our guide on the topic, which provides the essential information about granting a power of attorney for use in Spain and answers most commonly asked questions.
