In reply to your request for more information:
My husband and I are English, resident in England with a holiday home in Spain. Unfortunately my lovely husband died last January, thankfully here in England,and as I am the chief executor of his will I am concluding all the necessary legal work here in England.
We had Spanish wills leaving everything to each other and the property was in joint names. However the old car (Spanish plated) is no use to me as I don't drive in Spain. It is in my husband's name and I want to sell or scrap it but have been informed that I must first put it in my name by getting a Spanish Form of Probate, getting it verified by a solicitor, sending it to the Foreign Office with Death Cert and then sending it to a Spanish Solicitor. There will of course be charges to all these officials--all just to get rid of an old car which is worth very,very little! I had hoped to avoid all this.
Hope you can help me.
a Spanish Form of Probate
Hi thereJosé M spanish atorneyIn order to sell it you have to put on your own name first and then to the sellers nameIt is not too much expensive but you will need to spend time and moneyIf you considerer that the car is too old you have the chance to send it to the dismantler to scrap it with no problemsAccording to spanish law, to scrap it, you just need the copy of her passpaort and one of your s and the dismantler will do the rest.The doismantler will unsuscribe the car to the city hall tax list and spanish trafic lists (DGT)So, you have two ways, sell it putting on your name first,, or send it to the dimantler with your passport and her passsprt copy and the documents of the car. Nothing happens neither if the documents are lost alsoI will be here if needed
I can tell you names and phones of dismantlers or professional who could manage the case for youThank you
