Discover the advantages that power of attorney can offer you

What happens if you want to buy real estate in Spain but you are not in the country to make the arrangements? Acquiring a property entails carrying out a great deal of paperwork, writing deeds, signing contracts, managing taxes… But if you are not physically in Spain it can be a big problem. That’s what firms like Sun Lawyers is for.

Founded in 1985, the law firm Sun Lawyers has offices in Calpe, Jávea, Campoamor, La Zenia, Playa Flamenca and Cabo Roig, as well as a team of bilingual lawyers who can carry out your work in both languages, English and Spanish. If you reside outside of Spain and want to make arrangements in this country, power of attorney functions are very important. A power of attorney is an official document signed before a notary through which the donor grants a third party a power to act on their behalf.


In this way, the lawyer will be able to carry out negotiations on behalf of the donor even if he is not present, as in case of the purchase of a property. But it is not the only procedure that can be carried out. The lawyer will be able to operate with donor’s bank accounts, obtain certificates such as N.I.E., pay taxes, receive notifications, manage contracts… The power of attorney can adhere to a specific operation or can be granted more generally. However, the lawyer may only act on behalf of the donor under the terms set forth in the deed before a public notary.


To establish a power of attorney, the first thing to do is go to a notary. It can be both in Spain or in the country where you are. It is important that the lawyer is reliable, because sometimes the terminology of this type of management is convoluted. From Sun Lawyers recommend that this writing be done in both English and Spanish to avoid surprises.


In general, a power of attorney has no expiration, unless it is specified in the deed or the purpose for which it was established is completed in the first place. It can also end up insolvency or disability, both the donor and the advocate. Finally, the power of attorney expires because of the death of the donor or because the donor wishes to revoke the power.
