Our Lawyer office
To ensure a good and safe transfer of the property owner rights, in Spain it is normal to use the services of a lawyer. Ibérica-Estates has a number of preferred partners who we work with on a regular base. Preferred partners are companies or professionals who have shown to be expert in their profession. With our preferred partners we have built up a trustfully relationship over the last decade. We make use and recommend our partners to our new and existing client base. Together with our lawyer office and its dedicated staff we look after the interests of our clients who are in the process of buying property in Spain. Lawyers have various duties; the most common and important are listed below.
Confirming the legal status of the Spanish property
An important duty of the lawyer is to check the legal status of the property you want to buy. Are there any on-going debts on the object like a mortgage? Were all building and rebuilding permissions from the past formalized and ejected in a correct way? Has the construction work been done according to these permissions? What is the future zoning plan according to the town hall? Are there any pending utility bills or other outstanding debts? These are important matters that we want to make clear before signing the title deeds at the notary.
You have probably heard of it before, the NIE number, but what does this number stand for and why do I need one? The NIE number is a Spanish identifications number often used for tax related purposes. For almost every formal acquisition on Spanish territory you will be requested for your NIE number. NIE stands for Número de Identificación de Extranjeros. The number is personal and non-transferable. A NIE number is not exclusive for buying Spanish real estate. You will need this number for many other formalities such as opening a bank account, contracting services like Internet or buying a SIM card for your mobile phone.
Power of Attorney
When you are not able to be in person in Spain formalities can be taken care of by a power of attorney. This means a third person can sign the deeds at the notary. Depending on the level of authorization necessary, the third person can also arrange other formalities such as opening a bank account or contracting insurances. In most cases power of attorney is given to a lawyer or someone who works at a lawyer’s office.
Transfer of utilities
At the moment you have bought your new Spanish home you will need to arrange the supply of water, electricity and most likely Internet and television. The lawyer’s office takes care of transferring the names on the contracts, in an easy, fast and secure way.
