Inheritance / Probate

MAR CONSULTORES offers an efficient probate service to British clients with assets in Spain. We have built a wealth of experience in probate cases over the past 25 years. We cover the inheritance procedure from start to finish, including all aspects of estate administration, a full evaluation  of estate assets, tax liability agreement, applying for a grant of probate and executing it in Spain.

Most of our probate cases involve winding up Spanish estates using a Spanish Will. If there is no  Will in Spain then the procedure is more complex, but we can work through this by co-validate your English Will. If there is no will at all then the procedure is more complex still, but we have handled many such cases and will be happy to assist you.

Our probate services cover the following:

  • Spanish wills
  • Execution of UK probate to assets in Spain
  • Capital Gains and inheritance tax planning
  • Spanish probate and estate administration
  • Inheritance claims

Inheritance Claim

Mar Consultores can make a claim on your behalf against a Family Estate, offering a free assessment of your situation to establish if we have grounds for a case or not.

We fully understand the difficult personal situations surrounding these cases but are strong believers in children not being left out of their parent´s Will if Spanish law results applicable. We are experts  in all matters concerning Spanish inheritance cases.

In this case, we will establish timescales and fees with no obligation before we start work on your case. We will then provide a proposal in writing. We will always build the case with the intention of negotiating an out of court settlement before presenting to the courts.

We do not provide a below the market quote for the work and then surprise our clients with fees for the extra items. We handle cases anywhere in Spain at no extra cost.

Spanish inheritance tax

It is very important to work with an expert when dealing with inheritance tax in Spain as the system  is complex and both presentation and payment is done by self-assessment. Inheritance tax is different depending on where in Spain the heirs live as each region of Spain has additional exemption rates  not necessarily available on the national system.

We will also make sure that the Sentence of the European Court of Justice of 3rd of September of 2014 (which sentenced Spain for discriminating against non-residents regarding inheritance tax exemptions) is correctly involved, allowing non-resident heirs since that date to claim the same exemptions rates as residents in certain cases.
