SPANISH WILLS

 

Inheritance law can become very complex when several legal systems are involved. As Notaries and Spanish lawyers, we have extensive expertise in international cross-border succession problems involving different jurisdictions and any conflict of laws. We are particularly knowledgeable in Spanish/Irish conflicts of law.

Even if you have a valid Irish Will, obtaining legal advice and making a separate Will for your Spanish assets can save your beneficiaries unpleasant surprises, time and money.

Unmarried partners are particularly vulnerable if there is no suitable Will.

We can assist on the following matters:

  • Advice on Spanish inheritance tax rules and how any taxes can be minimised.
  • Drafting your Spanish Wills dealing with your Spanish estate, in Spanish and in English, to be signed in our offices in Maynooth or before your local Notary.
  • Take into account your Irish Will and any necessary provisions for any beneficiaries who are minors.
  • Obtaining legalisation of your Will with the “The Hague Apostille” in the Department of Foreign Affairs.
  • Registering your Spanish Will at the Central Registry Office of Wills in Madrid, Spain.
