Hi there

Its not easy they could go ahead in Spain selling the shared part of you

They have to probe the debt in Spain and demand you here in Spain

Even it could be good enough for you because even if they do it your sister could go to the court who sell oit and buy it for a very small price

So, in case they demand you in Spain, contract a local attorney here who inform you when the bank go to court and when the court sell your part out and tell your sister who buy the shared part for a little money

If the propiety is motaged also, the bank will have more problems to sell it out, so in my opinion is almost imposible they will spend money to get nothing

I think they are no going to folow you in spain to seize your propiety here for sure
