...the process is much simpler if there's a Spanish will."
If you own property in Spain, you should have a Spanish will; it is an expensive and slow process to get your foreign will recognized in Spain. For your heirs to get your property transferred to their names, the process is much simpler if there’s a Spanish will. If there is no Spanish will registered at the Registro de Actos de Ultima Voluntad, then your property could, in the worst case, pass to the local and regional government.
When you receive a copy of your Spanish will from a notary, it’s a good idea to have another copy sent to your embassy.
Please consider taking the advice and assistance of a lawyer for these matters. Too many expats have experienced the (often) nightmare of the Spanish legal system.
