Notary Public services
Consuls of Spain can act as Notaries, but do not provide a full range of Notary services. Owing to staff availability and workload in the Consular Section, Notary public services have long waiting lists. Therefore, allow for 1-2 months when requesting your appointment. Notarial services are provided by appointment only. 
Please bear in mind that the subject of the notarial document must be related to Spain. If it is not the case (eg. business or real estate in Finland), the document must be provided by a Finnish Notary.
The Embassy authorizes notarial documents, but does not offer legal advice. If you need legal advice or are uncertain about the document you need, contact a Spanish Notary or Lawyer. If you need an English-speaking lawyer in Spain, you can refer to the Bar Association (Colegio de Abogados) in your province, island or region. You can also ask your Embassy in Madrid to provide you with a list of English-speaking lawyers.
In order for your case to be studied by the Consul, please submit a request for an appointment, along with the notarial document you need, to
The Consular Section will get back to you, asking for further information. If you do not speak enough Spanish to understand the document that will be read to you, you will need the services of an interpreter. You will also need a lawyer or notary in Spain to provide you with a model in Spanish ("minuta") of the notarial document you need.
If you are buying property in Spain and you need any notarial documents (eg, a PoA or Power Of Attorney), it is easier, convenient and cheaper to get it done by a Notary in Spain. Many speak English and will offer advice. You can use the European Directory of Notaries search engine. You can also contact the Official Notary Association (website in Spanish).
All notarial services in the Embassy are subject to a fee. The fee is payable only in cash (we do not accept credit/debit cards). You should also bear in mind that if you do not speak enough Spanish to understand the notarial document when it is being read to you, you will need to come to the signing of the document with an interpreter.
