Whether you are planning ahead or if a loved one recently passed away, we are here to help. We can provide guidance of all legal areas affecting wills in Spain (including Spanish wills governed by foreign laws) as well as complex cross-border probate matters.
The Spanish legal rules on inheritance are very different from those in the UK and other common law jurisdictions. For this reason, it is vital for foreign nationals with assets in Spain to seek legal advice to avoid any unwanted surprises that may affect their loved ones. Most of all, we specialise in advising foreign nationals and their families on inheritance law and tax in Spain, as well as cross-border issues that may apply to their specific case.
We can help with the following:
Spanish wills – We specialise in preparing wills for foreign nationals in Spain, which are always drafted in English and Spanish. Unlike other firms, our wills service includes a consultation with you and your family in order to understand and help achieve your wishes, as well as clarifying any legal and tax queries that you may have.
International clients – We are experts in helping international clients. Therefore, we can advise in regards to Spanish and international rules on inheritance, as well as any cross-border issues that may arise, such as taxation,
Probate – We advise beneficiaries, administrators and executors in Spain and overseas in respect of all areas of the probate process, such as accepting the inheritance, distributing the estate, paying Spanish inheritance tax (IHT) and settling all legal matters.
