Powers of Attorney in Spain are granted to Spanish legal counsel for a variety of reasons which may include, amongst others, powers: to represent a client before the Spanish courts or an arbitral tribunal, to sell property, to accept an inheritance and liquidate the estates assets located in Spain and to represent a creditor in bankruptcy proceedings. To be recognized as valid in Spain, powers of attorney must be signed before a notary public, whether this be a Spanish notary or a notary of another country. In the latter case, the power of attorney must be accompanied by the corresponding Hague Convention Apostille. Also note that if you have a Spanish consulate located in your area you can grant a power of attorney before the Consul who acts in the capacity of a Spanish Notary. This will usually require an appointment in advance.
