Wills made for (UK) Expats

Many British expats who are living abroad need to make, or remake, a UK Expat Will to reflect changing circumstances. This maybe because your financial position has altered and there is a need to mitigate against future tax or it is perhaps your personal and family situation that has changed. (marriage, children, divorce or inheritance etc)

We offer a Will Writing service specifically for the UK Expat living abroad who wishes to make a new UK Expat Will (or Wills) without having to return to the UK and we can draft your UK Expat Will to comply with either English or Scottish Law. Our UK Expat Wills service is simple and inexpensive and just like our UK Will Writing service includes a free consulation (Skype, telephone or email) so that your choices can be explained and the new UK Expat Will can be drafted to meet exactly your circumstances and include all your wishes. Your new UK Expat Will can then be posted (or emailed)

A Will for UK Expats can cover worldwide assets if the other country is a signatory of clause 21 of the Hague convention. If they are not then a local Will may also have to be made specifically to cover assets in that country only, but care must be taken to avoid invalidating your main UK Will. In certain countries your UK Will will need to be translated into the local language and registered.

Making a Will for Expats in Spain

There are many British expats now living in Spain on a permanent or semi permanent basis who can benefit from our Expat Will services. We can draft Wills for English expats and we can also make a Scottish Will for Scottish expats which can be prepared from a telephone or email consultation. We offer a home visit service from our Spanish office for the Costa Blanca and the Costa Calida where we can make a Will in Spain for expats with a face to face consultation or by email/telephone or Skype for those in other parts of Spain.

NEW EU REGULATIONS ON SUCCESSION -  August 2015

The new regulations came into force on 17 August 2015 and it is most important that anyone with property in another EU country review their Wills and estate planning as a matter of urgency to avoid the forced inheritance laws of many of the EU countries.

A new legally valid UK Will drafted to comply with either English or Scottish law will be effective for overseas EU property in accordance with these new EU regulations. It sometimes can be advantageous to also have a simple Will drawn up in the same country as the property worded to comply with these new regulations however these new regulations mean it is not now necessary to have a local Will to cover foreign property..

Professional advice should be taken with regard to both existing reviewing UK Wills and making new ones. Legal Will Writers for UK Expats can provide this service for you. (for more information see our "Overseas Property" section.)

For those expats living in other countries Legal Will Writers of UK Expats offer a Wills by Post or email service which inlcudes a telephone or email consultation. We can make Wills for English expats and we can make Wills for Scottish expats without the need for a return to the UK.

 Expat Wills

Includes full consultation with a qualified Will writer by telephone or email with a special service for UK ex-pats.

How it Works

1. All your questions will be answered by a qualified Will writer who will also offer advice by telephone or email and then send you a questionnaire/instruction form.

2. You complete the questionnaire and return by email or post together with your payment.

3. Your completed questionnaire is checked by the same qualified Will writer who will then draft your Will and forward to you a draft copy for checking and you can make amendments at this stage if you wish. Once you have approved the Will a final draft will be sent to you together with the signing and witnessing instructions.

4. You have the choice to print out the Will at home or have a printed and bound copy sent to you by special post.

5. We also offer an optional service of safe storage for your Will and other documents.
