WILLS AND ESTATE
Ensure your peace of mind
Did you move to Spain and start worrying about the future of your property and who it will go to?
Making a will in Spain is highly recommended even if you have a universal will in your country of origin, either due to the simplicity of the proceedings following your death avoiding bureaucracy and additional economic expenses to your heirs, or to see if the national legislation better underlines your desires.
According to the Spanish legislation you cannot disinherit your children without legal reason.
It is important to contact a good professional who understands and knows well the comparative law applicable to your situation, to find the best solution.
- If you don’t make a will, your assets may end up in the arches of the Spanish state.
