Before you Start

We will need the following:
  • Full details (name, address, marital status, passport number and parents' names)
  • Passport copy
  • With the above, we prepare a power of attorney draft for the applicant, which they must have legalised along with a copy of their passport.
  • Once we receive the legalised POA and passport, we can submit the applications and obtain the number in 1 to 2 weeks.
  • Supporting documentation to prove the reason to apply. E.g. Details of the property being purchased or sold, death certificate of relative in case the reason is related to an inheritance process, etc.


You have done a terrific job of educating me and keeping me updated on the process. Your efforts have been reassuring and that is important given our separation in miles and primary language. I will definitely recommend you and your firm to anyone needing legal services in Spain! Thank you, Marta.

We bought a property in Spain last year, We had a lot of difficulty finding out about Inheritanc Tax, NIE number, etc. I found out about Lawbird through the Internet. I found the Company to be most efficient and courteous with a wealth of knowledge, every question we asked was answered promptly, sometimes by email long after office hours. They arranged our NIE Number promptly. I would highly recommend them to anybody thinking of purchasing property in Spain Also, the rates for their services are very reasonable.
