Probate & Spanish Inheritance
We are specialists in dealing with Spanish Inheritance / Probate for English speaking clients, and have dealt with numerous cases over the last 25 years.
We will guide you step by step through a procedure that, whilst the complexity depends on many factors, the most important starting point is whether there is a Spanish Will or not. (Please read here about the convenience of arranging a Spanish Will). So, the first step will be to find out whether the deceased person signed a Spanish will or not, and of course this is something we can do for you, obtaining a Certificate of Last Will, issued by the Central Registry of Wills in Spain, which is always the first step in the process of accepting a Spanish inheritance (after obtaining a copy of the “Death Certificate”).
We guarantee accurate invocation of exemption rates on the inheritance deed and tax forms, ensuring compliance with the ruling of the European Court of Justice on September 3rd, 2014. This ruling held Spain accountable for discriminatory practices against non-residents concerning inheritance tax exemptions. From that date onwards, non-resident heirs have the right to claim the same exemption rates as residents, and we will ensure their proper application.
