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
myAdvocate Spain you will benefit from the time we have
already spent assembling a network of lawyers that possess
all of the above qualities.
Experience is what counts when dealing with complex inheritance issues in Spain.
Which is why
myAdvocate Spain 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
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
myAdvocate Spain 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.
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.
This Probate Service is
designed specifically with the English-speaking client in
mind and makes provision for all possible situations.
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.

avoid excessive travel costs*
- Inheritance Acceptance
Deed drawn-up with the public notary.

Tax at the office of Hacienda.

* Minor UK notary costs may apply

What Clients Are Saying About Us
"Very happy overall. Far cheaper than the other quotations I got to do the same work."
P. Higgins, Newcastle
"Happy with the service. Was good to see that the price included the power of attorney and the other documents we needed. "
S. James, Leicester
"As we don't live close to the lawyers offices we signed the deed at a notary close to Alicante airport which was convenient as well as the price being very reasonable."
N. & J Ainsley, Middlesborough
"We made joint wills and it is just a relief to know that we will lose very little to inheritance tax. That had been a big worry for us."
R Kinley, Surrey
"Getting a version of the will in English and Spanish was great and also the advice from our lawyer was very helpful."
