Nota Simple – Land Registry Search (LRS)


A Land Registry Search (LRS) is a service thought for those who need to find assets in Spain under the name of individuals or companies (you must specify the latter).


This service is suitable for:


  • Asset-hunting in Spain.
  • Matrimonial proceedings: tracing Spanish property ownership of an opponent party.
  • Inheritance proceedings: tracing Spanish assets of a deceased.
  • Debt recovery.
  • Buying, selling or renting property in Spain.
  • Law Enforcement Agencies seeking ill-gotten assets in Spain.
  • Private detectives.


What this service includes:


  • Property search.
  • Reply within 24 hours (contingent on the Land Registry).
  • Basic translation into English of legal terms and property extract. *

*optional, additional fees apply


What you need to supply us (one or more of the following):


  • Full name and surname of owner/s.
  • Identification details of owner i.e. DNI if Spanish, or NIE number if non-resident.
  • IDUFIR (single property registration identifier).
  • Region in Spain where the property is located (a street address is useless for a search)


Legal fees (per property):


  • No English translation: 50
  • With basic English translation: 75
  • Bulk orders (10 or more): fees on application.


EDIT 16/02/2018: The rules of the Land Registry have changed and all negative result searches are now billed going forward (you will be billed half of our quoted fee).
