If you own a property abroad then you should consider reviewing your Will following new EU laws which came into force last summer. The new rules mean that on death, the starting position is that the laws of succession of the "habitual residence" of the deceased at the time of their death apply. Although the UK has opted out of the new regime (known as "Brussels IV" the rules are complex and those with properties in other parts of Europe could still, in practice, be affected -especially of course if they are habitually resident in one of the relevant EU states.
