In Spanish: Certificado Del Registro General de Actos de Ultima Voluntad.
What is it?
The last will certificate is the document that certifies whether a person has made a will/s and, if so, before which Notary/ies. In this way the heirs can contact the Notary who authorised the last will and testament and obtain a copy (authorised) of it. This document is required for any succession procedures.
How long does it take to arrive, once applied for?
The period for the issuance of these certificates is 10 business days when requested by post; and half of that when requested online. In situations of heightened demand, the issuance of certificates might suffer occasional delays.
You can apply online If you have a digital certificate or Cl@ve Pin installed on your computer. Alternatives: in person or by mail.
IMPORTANT: THE LAST WILL CERTIFICATE MUST BE LEGALISED IF IT IS TO HAVE VALIDITY OUTSIDE OF SPAIN. DO NOT FORGET TO MENTION THIS FACT WHEN MAKING AN APPLICATION WHEREVER CERTIFICATES ARE ISSUED. (Universal legalisation or The Hague Apostille)
