It’s easier to obtain NIE in the Spanish consulate by yourself, or sign a power of attorney and your lawyer could apply in Spain. Do not forget to include the copy of the Passport when you sign a power.
If you are in Spain, you have to go to the pólice, each police take more or less time to make an appointment.
I hope I have clarified your doubts, do not hesitate to contact me if yo have any further require.

On the other hand, I would also inform you as non-resident in Spain, as owner of an urban property located in this country, you are subject to Non-Residents’ Income Tax.

The Spanish tax authority assigns an income, or imputed income, based in the cadastral value of the property, applying percentages, that could change each year.
You should pay the tax, throughout the calendar year following the year of accrual.
I suggest to contact to a professional to calculate and present the tax on your behalf.

I am a lawyer, let me just remind you the taxes to be paid as no residente tax, when you rent your property.
The non-resident property tax (Impuesto Sobre la Renta de no Residentes) is a tax based on property in Spain for non-Spanish residents.
The Spanish tax authority assigns an income, or imputed income, or notional letting value to the property. A tax return has to be filed regardless of whether or not the property has been rented and whether or not the owner has actually received an income from the property.
As there have been problems in the past and still today that many people are simply unaware of their financial responsibilities, <u>the tax office is checking all taxes to be paid</u>, and if the owners are late paying, they are charging an interest rate, and it will keep increasing until paid, interest and penalties will be depending on the severity of the case, between 50-150% of the tax amount.
Furthermore, actually if the owner is not resident in Spain, tax may also be due in the country where they are resident, subject to any Double Taxation Treaty Relief.
In order to avoid unpleasant surprises, the owners of a property in Spain have to be updated in all taxes. They have to avoid to wait the Taxman to knock on their doors with a penalty proceeding against them.
If you have any require do not hesitate to contact me.
