MAKING A SPANISH WILL
Although it’s not compulsory, making a Spanish Will is highly advisable. Drawing up a will in Spain to cover only your Spanish assets, makes the whole procedure a lot easier, less expensive and above all, less stressful for the beneficiaries.
All Wills in Spain are registered in one central Registry, which makes it easy to apply for a certificate in the event of having to find out what someone’s Last Will and Testament entails. This tells the person where the will was actually signed and can usually be obtained within a few days. The system is so simple and straightforward here in Spain, that it would be a pity not to take advantage of it! At MAM Solicitors, we can help.
APPOINTING A FISCAL REPRESENTATIVE
It is very advisable to use the services of a local solicitor who can take care not only of the payment of your taxes in Spain but also to keep you informed of any essential changes in the law which may affect your interests.
MAM Solicitors can assist you in sorting out any hiccups related to your Spanish property while you’re away (i.e. electricity problems, letters that you don’t understand….). At MAM Solicitors we can help you with all your needs for fiscal representation.
