Why should you make a Spanish Will?

The subject of making a will is one that many shy away from talking about and for good reason! No one wants to spend time discussing what happens when they pass away. However, it is crucial to arrange your will, so the process is smooth and as painless as possible when the time comes.

This includes making a will in Spain if you own any property in the country that can be passed down to your inheritors. Here are some reasons why it is so important to have the conversation sooner rather than later.

Secures your Spanish property

By making a Spanish will, you are making sure that your property is handed down to the people you care about the most. If you die intestate (without a will) then you are at risk of having your property potentially handed to the Spanish government. You could also see your belongings inherited by your children instead of your spouse for example, which can cause a lot of uncertainty amongst family and friends if you do not state who this should be inherited by.

Using our expert legal team to assist you in making a Spanish will gives you full control over who inherits what means the most to you to keep your legacy going. Manzanares Lawyers can handle this difficult subject with the professionalism and respect it deserves.

Saves stress at a time of grieving

As well as giving yourself the peace of mind that your property is in safe hands, you should also think about how your closest friends and family would be affected during the time of grievance. After all, they are the people you care about the most and will be hit hardest at the time of your passing. If you make a Spanish will, the legal process after your passing will be much smoother for those around you, which we’re sure they will thank you for during the difficult time in question.

Legal complications can be avoided by making your Spanish will with the help of Manzanares Lawyers. This allows your loved ones to be able to mourn in peace and without any other stresses that may come their way if you were to die without making a will.

Gives you peace of mind in your later years

No one wants to spend their later years worrying about making their will, it should be a time where you are enjoying retirement with a glass of your favourite alcoholic beverage in hand basking in the summer sun! However, it is crucial to complete the legalities of making a will in Spain not only from a legal perspective but to assure you this part of your life is secure. Making a will with Manzanares Lawyers allows you to live the rest of your life with the knowledge that this subject can be left firmly in the back of your mind.
