Don’t worry about the correct phraseology, as we don’t have is in this country, I put the what the correct phraseology is either but I know what you mean.
It only applies to national is inheriting property BUT would apply to property outside that country. It doesn’t apply in the UK or to property outside the UK inherited by British citizens in the UK.
I haven’t got a clue what the situation would be if a British citizen was living in France.
I mention France because that’s the one most commonly crops up, I haven’t heard anything about it in Spain, you would need to speak to a Spanish lawyer.
All the estate I have dealt with where there has been a property in Spain, the executors simply got the Spanish lawyers to deal with it and it was dealt with in accordance with the UK will. The only problem was that the property was miles away and it needed Spanish lawyers to deal with the transfer.
