Official Translation - Deed of Acceptance and Distribution of Inheritance
Our clients were the beneficiaries of a testator who had made a Will in Spain and had assets in the UK as well. The beneficiaries of assets in Spain have to sign a document called Escritura de Aceptación y Adjudicación de la Herencia, Deed of Acceptance and Distribution of Inheritance. This Deed is signed before a Notary. By virtue of this Deed, the beneficiaries accept the inheritance in Spain. The official translation into Spanish of the Deed was needed to prove that the Spanish probate has been dealt with. The Probate Registry in the UK also requested the official translation into English of the Spanish Will to have confirmation that our clients were the beneficiaries.
The Probate Registry in the UK accepted the official translation of the Spanish documentation and the assets in the UK were distributed to our clients.
