    Just make sure that both your UK and Spanish wills are EXACTLY the same.

    Re: property owner making a will in uk

    thank you for your reply.
    i have a template will supplied free by my unions solicitors which has boxes to be filled.
    my spanish will has no boxes.
    it contains several written pages in spanish with english translation.
    do you mean that i ensure my wishes are exactly the same [ next of kin, assets etc ] or the wording [ in english of course ].

    regards

    Re: property owner making a will in uk

    When I arrived to live in Tenerife I had a Spanish Will drawn up here, I had not, at that time, drawn up an English Will. However, like yours, my Spanish Will is written in both English and Spanish so it was then easy for me to have a simple will drawn up in the UK to copy the one that was written in Spain (Tenerife). Hope this helps.

    thanks mod.
    to be clear; did you:

    1. photocopy the english part of the spanish will entirely and attach it to your uk will
    2. copy, in your own hand, the exact details of next of kin,assets etc on to your uk will.

    having been through this for a number of people can i offer a bit of caution. what are your circumstances? for example: if you are not married there are lots of complications. if it is your second marriage and there are children there are complications. in one case it is costing £1000's [getting to the stage where it is not worth the properties] because there are two wills. i would strongly recommend you spend a bit of money and get it sorted by a solicitor - my mums cost £150 last month.

    Re: property owner making a will in uk

    hi simplymark,
    i am married with two children....first and only marriage with no family issues.
    to my mind my circumstances seem straightforward apart from the fact i own a property in tenerife.
    it is my intention to attempt to make a d i y simple will in the uk that includes the necessary and correct information from my spanish will.

    regards
    rj
