Default Spanish Wills

My husband and I moved to Spain 11 years ago and are Spanish residents. My husband passed away in August 2013 in hospital and I registered his death at the Ayumiento. We have Spanish wills stating that if my husband died before me all property etc passed to me and vice versa.

We have no property in the UK. I have been to the Notary who signed relevant papers, looked at the wills and said everything was fine. However, I have now been told that I must have a Power of Attorney in England (one of my daughters still lives there) for anything I own there. As I have no assets whatsoever in England is this advice correct? I cannot settle my husband's estate - can anyone advise what I should do and if they know of costs involved.

Many thanks

Was he, perhaps, in receipt of a UK pension?

Did he have a life policy?

you can recommend a company or expert you have personally dealt with

as long as you aren't connected to them in any way - that would be touting for business /advertising & against forum rules

as would be asking other posters to PM for for that info
