The signature day

What do I have to bring to the signing?

You must bring a valid official Spanish identity document (DNI) at the time of signing, a photocopy of which is not admissible. If you are a foreigner, you will need a N.I.E. In the case of proxies, you will need an authorized copy of the power of attorney.

I have an expired DNI/NIE, can I sign a document?

No. If you reside in Spanish territory you must bring your DNI. Foreigners must always present proof of their Foreigners’ Identification Number (NIE) or passport. Any person who goes before a notary must be fully identified for the execution of any notarial document.

And in the absence of the above, can I carry my driving license?

No. A driving license is not a valid document for the purposes of notarial identification.

Do I need to bring the ID card of the person I represent?

No. You must bring the certified copy of the power of attorney.In this copy, the authorizing notary will have identified your principal. Ask us about the sufficiency of the power of attorney before the scheduled appointment.

Do I need to bring the NIE of the person I represent?

Depends. You must bring the certified copy of the power of attorney. If the notary has stated the NIE on it, you do not need to bring it.

Must we all be present?

It depends on the service. Ask us to make sure.
