A Spanish Power of Attorney allows for a third party to manage your affairs in Spain as well as execute deeds and pay taxes on your behalf when you are not able to do so. The third party that is chosen by the donor will be legally authorised to act on your behalf.
Why you would need a Spanish Power of Attorney
If you are unable to deal with your legal and transactional matters in Spain then you can appoint a third party to manage them for you. Anyone you appoint will need a Power of Attorney. This applies to anyone acting on your behalf and as Solicitors we would need to be appointed Power of Attorney by the donor to undertake any work for the donor.
All official bodies, legal personnel and banks will need to see a written Power of Attorney signed by the person concerned. It is worth mentioning that the Power of Attorney can be revoked at any time if you are dissatisfied with who you have empowered to act on your behalf.
Such matters that you may wish to delegate to your attorney might be applying for NIE numbers, property transactions and deal with your bank accounts.
How Lawindexpro can help
Our Spanish Solicitor will prepare the document for the client to sign and return. We then have it legalised at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office by obtaining an apostille which legalises the document in Spain so it can be valid.
