Testamentary Formalities in Spain
In Spain, almost half of the estates of deceased persons are governed by wills or, in the few territories that allow them, by succession agreements. This puts Spain well ahead of countries in the European Union such as Belgium, France, Germany, or England and Wales. It is also indicative of a growing trend towards will-making within Spain itself. This chapter begins with a review of the evolution of the main testamentary forms and formalities. It then discusses the modern law, open wills, closed wills, holograph wills, special wills, features common to more than one type of will internal formalities, and a shift from formalism.
