"Your personal data is protected by Basic Law 15/1999, of 13 December, on the Protection of Personal Data."
The Law provides for confidentiality, and the Notary and his officers are legally bound to professional secrecy.
"Please show the Notary the valid originals of your identity card, passport or residentís card, of the powers of attorney that prove your powers of representation and of your foreign residentís identification number."
The Notary has the legal obligation to identify you by means of the original of your identity card, passport or residentís card, and also to check the originals of the documents that grant you power of attorney. For these purposes, neither photocopies, driving licences, university identity cards nor other similar cards can be accepted. These requirements are legal guarantees to protect you and the persons with whom you do business.

The Notary will not only draw up and authorise the documents you require, but if you wish, he will also manage the payment of taxes and inclusion in the Property Register. To arrange this, fill in a work order sheet, which will also serve as a receipt and proof of advance payments. After the transaction is over, the payments made and taxes paid will be accounted for.

Spanish law prohibits smoking in the workplace. Ask at Reception about our refreshments service.
