Life is never straight or "la vida da muchas vueltas", as recently expressed an airport employee in Mallorca. If there is no contact to their own nationals, or has never existed at all, such a, it is often close to bequeath the property in Spain to other persons, the spouse, long-standing helpful neighbors or friends. But how do you do it right so that it can not provide inheritance rights to relatives? 1st Lifetime gifts sold for payment of pensions? 2nd Early Offer? 3rd Testament in favor of the selected title or by explicit Erbausschluss certain people? or you want to exclude people from even a compulsory heir. Would you exclude only the entry of the legal succession of siblings, nephews, nieces or distant relative, so would a testamentary scheme. At least if your parents are already predeceased.
If a compulsory persons, including children, the spouse, parents or grandchildren of Heritage must be excluded, it is important to note further legal framework.
