Default can I use an english notary???

hi all, well, keep your fingers crossed for me but we may have sold our house (in spain).
Now i cannot make it out to the notary and want to give my partner the power of attorney so i dont have to go out to spain but..... can I use an english notary (one just up the road fm me) to do all the business for me.
Has anybody done this before, or will it complicate things and it might be better if I got off my fat a..e and went out to Spain and did it out there?
thanks for any replies, pat

I think when we did the POA thing it cost about 100 quid, that was with a solicitor in Gandia (mind u that was a few years back)

didnt know there was an English notary ???? are they registered and above board ?

When I bought my place 2 years ago I used an English Notary to give POA to my Spanish lawyer. It cost about £90.

Yes you can no problems at all - some our clients do this regularly BUT as you have spotted quite often cheaper to jump on the plane yourself.

P.S. Just a thought we prepare the POA in English and Spanish and then send to a Notary in your nearest town - that somtimes works out slightly cheaper but then you have to include the cost of having it apostilled. All in all cheaper to get on the plan yourself
