are many Agents who would like to sell you a property, just make
sure that you get a receipt for any monies handed over to a sale
We do not handle contracts or funds as a general rule, we pass
all copy deeds to our Lawyer as soon as a reservation fee is
paid. In the case of a new home, the contract is checked by the
Lawyer to see if all is correct.
Law also requires, that three days before the new deeds are
signed a 'Nota Simple' must be requested by the Notary, who
checks that there are no debts and witnesses the signing of the
new deeds by both the Vendor and Buyer.
Many people find that it is inconvenient to come back to Spain
to sign the deeds. Perhaps they are working or they simply don't
want to pay the expenses to be present at the Notary's Office
for one morning. The solution is a 'Poder' or Power of Attorney
to the Lawyer.
Poder can be arranged while you are here in Spain or via a
Lawyer in the U.K.
