Can anyone give me some advice please. When we visited Catral in August we had several appointments at Sabadell bank to open an account. We provided all the documents required and signed all the paperwork but have heard nothing. I have tried emailing the branch but have yet to receive a reply. We are wanting to purchase property which we can’t until we have a bank account. Has anyone else experienced this? Or maybe you can recommend another bank.

You could try Bankia, not as expensive to run as Sabadell.

They have a standard current account and a no charges one called Cuenta On.

Cuenta On may have limitations, check with Bankia that it would handle your property money but the standard one certainly would.

Have you thought of applying online ? Failing this here is their English speaking helpline number, they are usually very helpful and hopefully you may be able to complete over the phone.

Thank you. I had tried before online without any luck.

Looks like I will need to come back over again soon to try and sort.

In your original post you also asked for alternative Banks which I provided, Sabadell do not appear to be moving things forward for you, why not just open another account ? Hence the english speaking helpline number.

Do they have a Spanish contact address for you?

Usually, if you are buying a property and don't live in Spain, your abogado is your contact address. Maybe they can communicate with the bank on your behalf.
