A notary's office is more than just an office for signing papers.
Notaries are custodians of legal certainty, impartial advisors, protectors of the law and practical mediators in complex legal tasks.

Notarial blog

Do not expect to find any legal master class in this blog. It intends to explain, in the simplest and most practical way possible, the different legal and notarial situations in which any person may find himself/herself throughout his/her life. It is a purely informative blog whose main purpose is to try to solve doubts. It tries to address and combine both classic or traditional issues, as well as more current issues but always within the notarial legal field.

How much does a notary service in Barcelona cost?

The cost of a notary service in Barcelona, as in the rest of Spain, can vary depending on the type of procedure you need to perform. Notaries in Spain have rates regulated by the State, which means that the prices for certain services are fixed and must be respected by all notaries. However, the final cost may vary depending on the complexity of the document or the number of parties involved. In our article "Did you know that.... all notaries must charge the same?" we explain everything in detail.

Can I receive legal advice at a notary's office in Barcelona?

What are the differences between a notary and a lawyer in Barcelona?

In Barcelona, as in the rest of Spain, the professions of notary and lawyer have different roles and responsibilities, although both work in the legal field. Here I explain the main differences:

  1. Function and objectives:
    • Notary: The main function of a notary is to confer public faith to the documents and acts that are formalized before him, ensuring their legality, authenticity and legal certainty. Notaries act as an impartial intermediary between the parties to ensure that all legal requirements are met and that agreements are properly documented.
    • Lawyer: Lawyers represent and defend the interests of their clients in various legal matters, both in and out of court. Their role is to provide legal advice to their clients, prepare the defense and representation in litigation, and guide in legal proceedings and decisions.
  2. Impartiality:
    • Notary: Must maintain a neutral position, ensuring that all parties understand the content and legal consequences of the documents and acts they sign.
    • Lawyer: He is committed to defend his client's interests, acting in a partial manner in favor of his client.
  3. Legal documents:
    • Notary: Has the exclusive authority to create public documents (such as deeds of sale, wills and powers of attorney) that have a high degree of reliability and are directly enforceable.
    • Lawyer: Prepares writings and private documents, such as contracts, lawsuits and other legal documents that may need to be validated or notarized in order to have certain legal formalities.
  4. Requirements to practice:
    • Notary: To become a notary in Spain, it is necessary to pass a rigorous national examination and be appointed by the Ministry of Justice. Notaries are civil servants.
    • Lawyer: Lawyers must obtain a law degree, pass the bar exam and be admitted to the corresponding bar association.
  5. Scope of work:
    • Notary: His work is more focused on the prevention of litigation, ensuring that acts and contracts are clear and within the law.
    • Attorney: May be involved in a wide range of legal situations, including litigation, legal advice, negotiations and mediations between conflicting parties.

These differences underscore the importance of each profession within the legal system and how they complement the legal spectrum by serving society's various legal needs. You can find more information about the requirements to become a notary in our article "Did you know that... to become a notary it is necessary to have a law degree and then study a tough opposition?"

Can I freely choose any notary's office in Barcelona?

Yes, you can freely choose any notary's office in Barcelona to carry out your legal and notarial procedures. In Spain, notaries are liberal professionals and citizens have the right to choose the notary's office they prefer, although you must keep in mind that they are assigned to a locality and have a territorial limit. You can select a notary based on criteria such as proximity, recommendations, specialization in certain services, or even the speed and efficiency of the service offered. This flexibility is part of the guarantee of access to quality notary services tailored to your specific needs. You can find more information in our article on whether you can choose the notary you want.
