Well I recently purchased a house in Mexico. I also have a few houses in the states. I'm planning to buy a house in Europe as well. Yes, investing my money while I still can and while it's cheap. Is it a difficult process in Europe, perhaps in Spain? For Mexico, I had to get an apostille on some of my documents. I didn't know how, so I google searched apostille, Apostille Pros came up.      http://www.apostillepros.com

They were very nice and helped me out with the Apostille process. Very helpful! Do you have to get an apostille to buy a house in Spain? At any rate, I'm just use Apostille Pros if I have to. Where is the best spot to buy in Spain. I like the beach and to be around tourist.

Legal Questions? Speak to Maria Direct

Dear James:

You would need to use the Apostille to buy in Spain if for the conveyancing process you are using any foreign documents that needs to be used in Spain. For instance, if you are granting POA to your solicitor, and you are doing so before an American Notary.

You can find more info on Hague Apostille here:

Not 100% sure where you are, but we found it easier to do the Hague Apostille using a local notary. You go the your local notary with your identification documents, passport, birth certificate, etc. The notary will then complete a form, take a copy of your id, you will all sign it and the notary will use his seal. In the UK, this is then sent off to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office for processing. About 5- 10 days later you have the necessary documents.
