Complete a safe real estate transaction from your own Country using a Power of Attorney

24 Aug 2020

Have you ever heard about the Power of Attorney (POA) for real estate? If someone holds Power of Attorney it means that they have the legal authority to act on behalf of another person (principal or adult) for specific purpose, for example the purchase or sale of a property, or to help them to get their NIE numbers, open a bank account and many other useful tasks all to help them to fit perfectly into the country and make life easier. 

With the COVID situation and possible lockdowns or restrictions with borders and quarantines it becomes a useful option for both parties as it means if there are any travel restrictions imposed, sales can still go to notary without any delay. With POA it is not necessary for the buyer / seller to be physically present to sign for completion at notary. The person who is interested in purchasing or selling a property places their trust in an attorney that has a legal, fiduciary and ethical duty to represent their best interests.

In which situations should you exert a Power of Attorney

Power of Attorney is being used more and more by international investors and buyers or sellers for closing real estate transactions. It should be noted that a Power of Attorney can only authorize an attorney to mediate in legal or financial aspects, and not health issues.

In case you need to sell a house in Moraira, Benitachell or anywhere on the Costa Blanca, but couldn’t be in Spain due to the coronavirus crisis, you can assign a legal representative that will take care of your interests. The agent or lawyer must act honestly and responsible. It is recommended to keep in touch with your representative by phone or videocalls to make sure there aren’t any misunderstandings regarding the purpose of the negotiation. 

If you are looking for a property for sale in Costa Blanca, but you are unable to attend to visit the properties personally, you can also assign the power of attorney to someone to act in your place for an specific procedure.
