Notarising Spanish documents in Ireland

As an Irish notary public I deal with documents from every jurisdiction in the world however because large number of Irish nationals who have moved to Spain or own property in Spain, that is the country with whom I deal with most.

While an Irish notary cannot advise on Spanish law the following sets out the most basic clauses that you should expect to see in the most common document likely to be required in Spain – namely a power of attorney given by an individual for a specific purpose (eg to sell a property)

SPANISH FORMS

The attestation of witnesses in notarial acts is only required by Spanish law in the following cases:

1 When one or more of the parties, or the notary, demand the presence of (art.180 of the Notarial Regulations);

2. When one of the parties is unable to read or write (art.180 of the Notarial Regulations).
In those cases at least two witnesses should be present.
Similar provisions are made in for wills (Civil Code, arts 697 (open wills) wills (both articles as amended by Law No.30 of December 20, 1991)).
