The deed (Escritura in Spanish) is one of the most important documents in the property purchase process in Spain. Deed title transfer is carried out in the presence of an authorized Spanish Notary.

If you do not give power of attorney, you must be present in person to sign the deeds in a notary public. All parties to the sale must be present at the appointed time or issue the Power of Attorney separately. For example, if you are buying a home in Spain with other people or if the seller is more than one person, you must all be at the notary.

If you are using a mortgage loan, the representative must also be at the notary. Therefore, you need to inform your mortgage lender about the date, time, and place of signing the deeds.
