depositing a cheque

Postby morlandg » Fri Nov 25, 2022 2:07 pm

We are selling a house in andalucia. The estate agent has arranged an appointment at the notary office. It was originally on 2nd december and we booked flights from newcastle to malaga for wed 30 november to wed 7th december. The buyer changed the notary date to 5th dec but we thought our flights would still cover this. Unfortunately we have realised that dec 6th is a national public holiday and that we have an early morning flight back on the 7th december. Our problem is - how do we deposit the cheque(s) into our spanish bank account? Do we have to do it in person or could our son do it for us on the 7th? I also note that dec 8th is another national public holiday so are the banks open on the 7th december?
Any suggestions?

I have just completed the sale of my house; originally I asked for a bank transfer which my etsate agent persuaded me against in favour or a banker's draft - somewhere along the line it got changed back to a bank transfer - the Notary would not sign the process off until they had received a PDF confirming the bank had sent the money.

You can change to a bank transfer quite easily and I have been told it can be changed at the Notary's on the day!

I am sure you can pay cheques into your account at the hole in the wall 24 hours a day. I always pay cash in now using this system as the banks dont want you in branch for deposits.
