Spanish Inheritance Law and Wills

A foreign Will is valid under Spanish Law if it meets the requirements of the Spanish Civil Code and the provisions of the Hague Convention on recognition of Wills.

However it is very advisable to execute a separate Spanish Will for the assets located in Spain. In case of decease, if a Spanish Will has not been proved and registered with the Last Wills Central Registry in Madrid, the beneficiaries will go through a long, highly bureaucratic and expensive process in order to receive the assets in Spain.

The Inheritance procedure without Spanish Will can take up to two years and the Spanish authorities would penalyze if there is any delay.
