ÁbacoInheritante Service

Satisfaction with our inheritance service

ÁbacoInheritance has been developed with our clients´needs in mind. From talking to you and working with you we know how important it is that the process is made as straight forward and worry-free as possible for your inheritors. We have developed this service to meet this specification.

Here are some testimonials from our clients:

  • “We approached Ábaco for help and advice due to our recent bereavement of our youngest son who died unexpectedly whilst out in our apartment in Spain. We were introduced to ÁbacoInheritance Team, who immediately assured us that all our son's Spanish estate and inheritance wishes (as he had the foresight to make a Spanish will) would be taken care of. On behalf of my wife and myself I would like to say thank you Ábaco for your thorough and very professional attitude. We would recommend this company to anyone needing help and advice.”

    John Heatley and Beryl Pickford

  • “Ábaco Advisers have been our legal representatives in several matters and we have always been satisfied with their work and professionalism they have proved in dealing with our issues. Being a foreigner in Spain, it is highly important to have a legal representative that you can trust and who is easy to contact; in the case of Ábaco, this has never been a problem, as they have always offered their multidisciplinary knowledge and have answered quickly our questions and have always been at our disposal.”

    Claes and Ingeborg De La Motte

  • “When my partner passed away I had the difficult task of going through the legal procedures required, regarding our property and assets in Spain. With great trepidation and fear of the unknown, I met with Abaco, who was immediately able to give me reassurance and excellent help and advice. Throughout the process, I was kept informed at every stage, and every question was answered swiftly and professionally. As a result, a difficult period of my life was made much more bearable and the outcomes were achieved with the minimum of fuss, for which I will be eternally grateful. Ábaco remains my first port of call if I have any queries, and I have always found them to be approachable, efficient and accurate in their advice and any action undertaken on my behalf.”

    Alyson Moody

  • “I want to thank Ábaco for all the help received after the sudden death of my husband. At first it was total chaos for me because there was much to sort out both here in Spain and in our own country. After my husband's funeral in Sweden, I returned to Spain and contacted Ábaco in order to ask them for help with the Spanish Probate. They immediately helped me with all legal formalities, I have not had to do anything myself, they dealt with everything on my behalf and I really appreciate their support and the way the have got involved with us.”
