I am new to all this. Could anybody tell me how I can find out who owns property in Spain?

I have seen a few I would like to talk to owners about. How do you go about that?

Thanks in advance for all the help you can give.

You'll need to go to the relevant land registry and get a nota simple.  You'll need the address of the property (which can be difficult if it's out in the countryside).  The nota simple is a cut down version of the escritura so will give you other info as well such as whether there are any charges against the property - mortgages etc. Cost is minimal - just a few euros.  You'll need to be able to speak Spanish in most areas - or take someone with you who speaks Spanish.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for all your help.

Can this be done from the UK? By letter form or email?

The land registry won't answer questions by email or letter.  Which area are you looking in?  I might be able to recommend someone who can do it for you for a small fee if you are in the Malaga region.

Legal tip 568. Spanish Land Registry in English 
02 August 2011 @ 12:39 

 Just launched: the service of the Land Registry in Spain in English, as a further  proof of continued consolidation of a tendency for international presence of property  buyers in our country. The buying trends are not the crazy ones of the 00 but more informed, valuated calm and genuine ones: in my opinion. much better and good for  a healthy market. 

We did  a couple of posts on the meaning and legal importance of the Land Registry in our country, which will certainly help you to grasp the whole importance of this information being now available in English.

Legal tip 61. What the hell is the Land Registry in Spain

Legal tip 62.More protection by the Land Registry

This will not exclude the necessary intervention of a lawyer for the proffessional interpretation of such information and the descrpription and assistance on advantages and disadvantages  and necessary legal managements related to the informations therein contained.
