We have just had an offer accepted on the purchase of a property in Costa Blanca. We are being given all different pieces of advice. Everyone seems to be saying it’s easier if we assign our lawyer (who we are trying to find independently of the estate agents) a Power of Attorney. I am a little worried about doing this, having heard some nightmare stories. So, what are peoples advice on this and does anyone know if the POA can just be limited to them getting our NIE’s and, say, setting up the bank account? For the actual signing of the Deeds, I am thinking that I would rather be present.
Any advice greatly appreciated.
