Inheritance Tax Service in Spain

 

Finding the right legal support in Spain

Finding a Spanish lawyer who has experience dealing with inheritance matters for non-residents can be a problem. Finding one who can speak excellent English even more so.

But, try to find a solicitor with these skills at a reasonable price and your search suddenly becomes extremely difficult.

Of course, by contacting Advocate Abroad you will benefit from the time we have already spent assembling a network of lawyers that possess all of the above qualities.

 

Experience Matters

Experience is what counts when dealing with complex inheritance issues in Spain.

Which is why Advocate Abroad insists that each of the lawyers on it’s network has an appropriate level of post-qualification experience in their field.

In this way you can be sure from the very beginning that you have the right solicitor looking after your interests in Spain

    Understanding Spanish law regarding buying and selling properties is a minefield for English speakers. Cristina provided the legal expertise, the translation of legal documents, explanations for all i...ssues, and solutions for our challenges.

    Also, she provides confidence and reassurance that what we are doing is in our best interests and within the law - very important when working in a foreign country.

    In summary, she is an excellent professional that we are so pleased we found and will continue to use for all our legal matters.

    I think you have a perfect solution for supporting people abroad. I was lucky to find you on the internet. Perhaps you could promote your services to all estate agents abroad, so more people can get access to your service when buying or selling abroad.

    Overall it was great. Rosa always answered all questions asked and provided clear, concise and well explained answers.

    When there was a delay in responding she did offer an apology which was appre...ciated. Rosa always instilled a sense of confidence that she knew exactly what was going on, what I was asking, and what the applicable law was.

    When not a Spanish local and dealing with her remotely, this provided great comfort in a sensitive matter.

    Juan was extremely helpful during every part of the purchase. As I was buying an older property there were slight complications but Juan explained every issue and managed to work through the difficult...ies with supreme efficiency.

    Also there was a ridiculous situation with my Spanish bank account where I could not access the money even though it was in the account. Thankfully I had given Juan power of attorney and he managed to sort-out the problem.

    He went above and beyond the call of duty and I am very grateful for all his help. I would strongly recommend him to anyone looking to buy in the Almeria region.

    Francisco was incredibly responsive (and quickly).

    Unlike American attorneys (and I know, because I am one), he didn't even bill me for a few follow-up emails/calls that he made on my behalf which... he easily could have done.

    I was supremely happy with his legal services.

    Kubra was fantastic.

    She immediately started to communicate with me via WhatsApp which was very helpful and I could speak to over the phone to get updates any time. This was a massive contrast to o...ther lawyers I spoke to in Turkey.

    I instantly felt that I could trust her and would recommend her services to anyone. I will be keeping her details very close to hand.

    Alfonso was extremely helpful, particularly since we requested a quick turnaround for the 18 documents needing to be translated from English and French to Spanish.

    He was fluent in our phone conver...sations and email correspondence, he never misunderstood what our requirements were. He was was clear in explaining how this process works and what the price included.

    I would highly recommend him to anyone needing these services.

 

No Additional Charges

Although you will benefit from having a lawyer specifically chosen for you i.e. an English-speaking lawyer very experienced in their field, there is no extra or elevated charge for the privilege.

So while you could choose to outlay the same amount of money for a lawyer who is unable to communicate at a high level in English or can only communicate via an interpreter, the question must be ,why would you?

 

Code of Reasonable Fees

As legal fees in Spain are no longer regulated lawyers are free to charge as much as they see fit for their services.

Of course this gives rise to huge differences in the amount of money charged for the same service by different lawyers – often by more than 100%.

This is why Advocate Abroad insists that regardless of the free market, our lawyers’ quotations are within the limits of the recommended guideline prices of the relevant Law Society – and often well below.

 

Non-Resident Focused

Unlike others, our main focus is on non-residents which means that we understand that you have specific and unique requirements – such as arranging translations of official documents and often require powers of attorney to avoid too much travel.

We are therefore always ready to provide additional assistance where required to ensure that your situation is handled as smoothly as possible.

 

 Service Features

This Probate Service is designed specifically with the English-speaking client in mind and makes provision for all possible situations.

The service includes the following features as well as continuous support from English-speaking lawyers:

  • Assistance obtaining a legalised copy of the death certificate.
  • Arrangement of a legal copy of any existing will.
  • Verification of the existence of any life insurance policies.
  • Power of Attorney to avoid excessive travel costs*
  • Inheritance Acceptance Deed drawn-up with the public notary.
  • Payment of Inheritance Tax at the office of Hacienda.
  • New titles in the inherited assets are inscribed in the relevant registry**
  • Simultaneous sale or disposal of assets if required (additional fee)

* Minor UK notary costs may apply
** Spanish government charges will apply
