Succession and Probate in Spain

Inheriting assets and administering estates can be a difficult process when Spanish assets are involved.  The difficulty of navigating legal processes can be compounded by having to grapple with an unfamiliar language and legal system.  

Administering an estate or receiving an inheritance in Spain can be doubly difficult in cases where the deceased died without leaving a will.  It can be incredibly daunting to approach the problem and many people have problems knowing where to start.  
Whether you are named in a Will or you believe that you are entitled to a share of the estate of a deceased person, it is important to obtain independent legal advice in order to realise any interest that you may have.

At E&G Solicitors in Spain we have been advising clients in relation to all aspects of inheritance in Spain for over 12 years.  We have advised clients inheriting all manner of assets across Spain, from Barcelona to Ibiza and everywhere in between.

We appointed E&G Solicitors in Spain as our Spanish fiscal representatives to administer all Spanish estates and assets left to us in Wills. We find their approach pragmatic and helpful. They deal with matters promptly and with professionalism and have enabled us to overcome complexities in the Spanish legal system that we struggled with prior to their involvement. We value our association with Eshkeri & Grau and I have no hesitation in recommending them.
