Jim's Guide - Wills for less than €60

When we first moved here many moons ago, we didn't know any better and used our solicitor to prepare our wills and take us to the notary to get them enacted. This obviously wasn't cheap and, from the posts I've seen on this forum, a lot of people are still falling into the same trap.

I recommend that if you want to make wills, or carry out any other procedure that requires a notary's involvement, then you use the following:

NOTARIA JOSÉ CARLOS PÉREZ JUAN

Avda. Príncipe de España 2, 2nd floor

(the entrance is on Calle Islas Canarias)

03160 Almoradí

965 701 121

website: http://notariaperezjuan.es/

email: [email protected]

The location map is here - it's just off what we all call fountain roundabout:

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Notar%C3%ADa+de+Jos%C3%A9+Carlos+P%C3%A9rez+Juan/@38.1141,-0.789214,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0xe0deef6591fa2b06!8m2!3d38.1140998!4d-0.7892141?hl=en-GB

Article continues below

The notary José speaks perfect English, and the ladies will swoon over him. There's a lovely young Welsh girl called Ayla who the men will lust over. So no problems with communication.

If you send them an email, they'll send you an information sheet plus a document where you can enter all your details to enable them to prepare the will. Return this and they'll tell you when the will is ready.

The price is €57.17.

We will shortly be doing living wills, and the price for that is similar.

If anyone follows my advice, please tell them who recommended you.

This is so helpfull and I am so grateful for all your information. We recently rewrote our English wills free in UK as virtually everything is being left to charities on the sole survivors demise.We have questioned our solicitor regarding same for our wills and he quoted 150€ each to do it. Thankfully he is on holiday and we go back to UK before he returns so its a job for our next visit which I will arrange through your recomendation. You,ve saved me a lot of money. Thankyou Jim

Regards

Pauline.

Ouch, Kim!

Notarial services have improved tremendously in the years we've been here, and they now give you the opportunity to avoid the use of a solicitor for many functions.

You can use any notary you wish - provided he does what you want done, and at a price you're willing to pay; you'll just have to ask the notaries in your area.

I'm a bit surprised that, on a busy forum like this one, I seem to be the first person to recommend a specific notary.

Just used the services of the Notary, it was about 40 minutes away from our place but worth the drive. Very professional and friendly service. Thanks for the advice Jim.
