Spanish wills are individual and personal, in other words, it is not possible to prepare a joint document. Each person must have their own. The Spanish will only cover assets in Spain, so if there are assets in other countries, a will must be written in that/those other country/ies.
The last will signed will be the one that prevails and if you have other wills, they will not be affected by your Spanish will.
The process to obtain a Spanish will is as follows:
- Contact Vives Pons & Asociados
- Vives Pons writes a "minute" with the information that will be included in the Will and sends it to the Notary to be able to request an appointment to sign the Will.
- You and a member of the Vives Pons team will attend the Notary on the day of the appointment.
- At the Notary, we will sit in a private room where the Will will be read and we will translate it into English. Once you agree with the content of the Will, it will be signed by you and the Notary.
- Once the Will is officially signed, you will receive an official copy and Vives Pons will keep another official copy filed in the office.
Our fees also include VAT, writing of the Will, notarial fees and registration fees.
