Ideally foreigners should make two wills; one in their home country ruling on their national assets and a second Spanish will drawn up in Spain which will rule exclusively on their Spanish estate.
Recent European legislation (Brussels IV) has rendered some old Spanish wills made by British void. In such cases it is highly recommended a lawyer drafts a new one to safeguard your heirs' interests. Any will witnessed before the 17th of August 2015 should be revised by a lawyer to ensure it is fully compliant. More details in our article: Spanish Wills and Probate Law in light of European Regulation 650/2012.
Our law firm can draft a Spanish will (in English and Spanish) from only €195.

“Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.” – Stephen Hawking.
Stephen William Hawking (1942 - 2018). English theoretical physicist, cosmologist, writer, and director of research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology at the University of Cambridge. Former Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge and author of A Brief History of Time. Likely the world’s smartest man. Despite his serious physical condition from a young age, he sported a brilliant sense of humour that humbled all and made him appear no less than four times in The Simpsons show as himself - no one else holds this record to date. Given his physical disability and the severe adaptation he endured, if we are to go by his own quote, his mind must have been touched by God.
