Hi,

I want to use various Spanish estate agents to help sell my property. Most of them have already taken it on without any requests but one of them has asked me to send a copy of my deeds to them as they said it was a legal requirement. Does this sound right? My deeds are 45 pages in total and include details on my mortgage, bank account, etc. Do they really need all of this or just the first few pages?

Many thanks

Dear Sir or Madam,

If your property is located, for example, in Andalucía region, yes it would be a legal requirement. All estate agents based in Andalucía listing it should have asked you for a copy of your title deed in compliance with Decree 218/2005.

It will depend on the region where your property is located.

Yours faithfully,
