Notaries in Tenerife


Notaries in Tenerife. If you're looking for legal information and have already perused my pages on solicitors and attorneys, you'd probably expect a similar thing to be presented regarding notaries.

When I set about compiling this page, I'd thought it would have been quite straightforward, too. How wrong was I!




Just to recap, a notary, or notario, is a person who witnesses and authorises exchanges of legal documents, concerning such things as house or business sales. They have numerous other functions as well, all to do with legal matters that are, essentially, not concerned with legal disputes, but merely transactions.

In my research for this page, this is where the fun began.

My aim was to provide you with a list of Notaries in Tenerife who speak English, in much the same way as I'd done for solicitors and attorneys. I discovered a list of Notaries, but none of them appeared to have a website. All there was, information-wise, was a phone number and, maybe, an email address. So, there's no telling if they speak English or not. I'll give you a link to the list anyway. Just click here.




There is another option. If you're from the UK, or another EU member state, a notary from your own country can sometimes act on your behalf in your legal dealings in Tenerife.

Apparently, there is a list of approved English Notaries practising in Spanish law that has been issued by the Spanish Consulate in London.

Having visited the Spanish Consulate's website, I couldn't find any such list, so I've had to resort to a bit of detective work of my own. There are several Notary firms based in the UK that deal in Spanish law...and here they are:

So, if you're still in the UK and are buying, say, a property or a business in Tenerife to eventually move out to, you're pretty much spoilt for choice for notaries.

If you're already on the island and are forced to visit a local notario, you may have to take a Spanish speaker along with you. As I've said earlier, I can't vouch for any of the notaries in Tenerife speaking English.
