Inheritances are a complicated matter. Inheritances in Mallorca which may be subject to Spanish law and are handled in a foreign language, are even more complicated. Therefore, it is highly advisable and recommendable to seek professional advice.
To avoid complications in case of inheritance, you should prevent risks as early as possible regarding your inheritance. Sometimes it can be financially better for your heirs to donate or sell any property or fortune during life time to them.
If you inherit in Spain - in order to apply for the inscription in the land, commercial or shipping register and any other public register, it is necessary to carry out an acceptance of inheritance before the notary public. We are happy to prepare the acceptance of inheritance in Mallorca for you and will accompany you to the appointment before the notary or undertake the acceptance of inheritance for you on the spot in Mallorca without that you have to be present.
