Understand the process for taking out probate in Spain when the deceased's nationality is from the UK, Ireland or another country.
Should the deceased have accumulated debts then these become the responsibility of the beneficiaries. This liability extends to the personal assets of the beneficiary should the proceeds of the inheritance not be sufficient to cover them.
So, this can be a very important aspect of inheritance to consider if inheriting a property that is in significant negative-equity. The benefit of inheriting will need to be balanced against the liabilities to decide whether it is worth accepting an inheritance.
Such acceptance can be tacit and so it is advisable to formally reject the inheritance via your lawyer.
