Notary Public: The notary is responsible for several important tasks during the completion of the purchase to ensure the purchase is carried out legally. They draw up the title deeds, certify the identity of the parties involved in the purchase, ensure the purchase price is paid to the seller and witness the signing of the deeds. They also carry out certain checks on the property register. However, the notary does not represent your interests so your lawyer will thoroughly check the deeds and amend them if necessary before you sign them.

The Gestor: A gestor, perhaps unique to Spain, is someone who takes charge of presenting paperwork to the appropriate authorities. Most lawyers use a gestor to carry out certain transactions after the purchase of a property in Spain. These include payment of taxes on behalf of the client, registration of the title deeds and the setting up of direct debit payments for utility companies and community fees.
