However, before signing the notary deed, the document is already very accurately translated for our clients, through our interpreter and in the presence of our lawyer.

In Spain the legal standards governing the functioning of the system of registration and mortgage are the Law on mortgages of 08.02.1946r and regulations mortgages signed on 14.02.1947r as amended, and the Code of Civil Spanish law. Spanish mortgage books system combines the two systems German and French.
To sum up: the functioning of the land register in practice is no different from the functioning of Polish Land Registry (supervised in Poland by the Judges Section - Land Registry). Before buying a property its current legal status has to be check in land registry by taking so-called "Nota simple" - a document defining the current state of the property. Our lawyer is taking care of this.
