Power Of Attorney (POA)
A power of attorney is a mandate given in writing before a notary public and executed as a deed by the donor (person giving the power of attorney) in favour of a third party (attorney). Spanish powers of attorney normally give the donor very broad powers to deal with the specific transaction. As an example, a power of attorney for the purchase of property will often include clauses allowing the attorney to open, close and operate bank accounts, set up direct debits, make payments for the account, arrange utility contracts, pay taxes, submit forms and send and receive notifications to and from different authorities. There are 2 options to obtain a POA. If you are in Spain, we can organise this through a local notary alternatively this can be arranged through a local notary back in your home country.
