Power of Attorney:
NIE (Número de Identificación de Extranjero) is translated literally as the Foreign Identification Number and issued to people who are not Spanish citizens. Spanish Citizens on the other hand receive a DNI. As you would expect, any non-Spanish citizen whether or not from the EU receives a NIE rather than a DNI. Having an NIE does not imply residency. Therefore, it is quite usually so have both a NIE and be a non-resident in Spain.
Your Lawyer in Spain will assist you in obtaining an NIE
When purchasing a property is it mandatory to apply for an NIE. You can obtain an NIE at the police Station. We can apply for it on your behalf with a valid Power of Attorney.
Please note that to obtain an NIE number you will need so submit an address in Spain. However, we can help you with this regard if you do not have a current Spanish address.
Open a spanish bank account:
Another reason for having a Lawyer in Spain is to open a Spanish bank account. You’ll need one to purchase a property. Thankfully, because Spain is a favourite destination for many northern Europeans, banks are generally geared up to cater for foreign nationals.
In fact, Spanish Banks tend to be more international than banks elsewhere in Europe. Your bank account will pay for utilities bills, taxes and other direct debits when you are away.
