Hi thereI need to know the nationality of your Auntie in order to answer youIf she was spanish the spanish law says that first are called sons, then parents, and if not, siblings.So, you could ask for the inheritance here in SpainIf she was not spanish, you have to ask to an atorney of the same nationality of your Auntie, bacause spanish law could be not aplicable.In all cases, if she got permanenet residence here in spain and no better heir appears, you could claim also the inheritance here in SpainThank you. José M spanish atorney Thank you

My auntie is Spanish as is my mother. Both born in Huesca Aragon. My auntie has no children, no parents and my mother is the only living sibling. The nieces and nephews (children of other deceased siblings to my mother and aunty) think they are entitled to the inheritance. Please advise if this is the case. many thanks.
