Wills & Probate

Do you need to make a Will in the UK or in Spain?

Inheritance law can be incredibly complex, especially when a person's estate includes assets in another country. Sarah Waddington Solicitors are well equipped to deal with Wills and Probate issues that arise for both clients in the UK and in Spain. With Solicitors based in Spain & the UK we are equipped to help you no matter where you may be based.


Our experienced, multi-lingual Probate department handles inheritance of Spanish, UK and European estates, offering strategic advice to other law firms in Europe and further afield on obligatory heirs, succession to Spanish estates and Private International Law, including conflict of laws or jurisdiction.

On your behalf, we can value Spanish estates for UK probate purposes; English solicitors at Sarah Waddington Solicitors can apply for “Grants of Probate” or “Letters of Administration” for Spanish estates. We can also provide Certificates of English law on inheritance matters for English and Welsh nationals and work with lawyers and notaries in Europe to assist Dutch, Belgian and French nationals.

Our Estate Planning department are experts in dealing with estates that have assets in Spain, the UK and offshore. We are able to draft Spanish Wills on your behalf, taking into account where assets are held and the specific succession arrangements that are necessary. For the additional convenience of your clients that do not live all year round in Spain, we can easily arrange for them to sign their new Spanish Will in the UK.


Specialist inheritance tax advice is available that embraces all European countries and we can work with your accountants or financial advisers to find a solution for you.
