Wills and Probate
Inheritance is a particularly complex area of law. Spanish laws of inheritance will differ from your home country and we strongly recommended to our clients who own property or have assets here, that they have a Spanish Will. This can be done easily and it does not affect any other Will that you may have in any other country.
Our experienced, probate department handles inheritance of Spanish, offering strategic advice, succession to Spanish estates and Private International Law, including conflict of laws or jurisdiction. On your behalf, we can value Spanish estates.
We are able to draft Spanish Wills on your behalf, taking into account where assets are held and the specific succession arrangements that are necessary.
Finance and mortgages
Raising a mortgage in Spain may be an attractive proposition. Details required will be proof of earnings, payslips, etc. A valuation by a bank surveyor will also be required.
We will explain all the terms and conditions relating to any borrowings, as well as the interest and expenses.
An area often overlooked by some buyers. Once the property is purchased then it is prudent to find insurance from a reputable company at the best price.
