Money matters

Wills

No, really... it does!
But does it matter more in Malta than at home?

Wills

Not sure where this should be posted

We have bought a holiday home in Malta. Should we have a separate will made in Malta to cover this or should we be able to include it in our UK one and it still be valid?

Recca
It is adviseable to make a Maltese will as any property here is subject to
Maltese law which may be slightly different with regards to who gets what when you die.

Mark, thanks, but the second link you mention does not work and I had the same problem when I tried it on Elders board.

I guess that, while most if not all Maltese notaries will write Maltese wills, writing UK ones from Malta may be a more specialised service.

Can anyone suggest (on the RS board if need be) any suppliers who offer this service? I imagine Gozo SPCA had some examples in mind.

@Mark

Morning Mark, sorry to trouble you but I'm trying to follow the links you postd here re the legacies and wills etc. they seem to be broken links.

Also, we are doing our wills and plan (as we're the end of the line so to speak!) to leave money to charities - Gozo spca and the one on Malta - can you provide me with addresses and telphone numbers or where I can find them?

Many thanks,

Rachel

Thanks for info - will get to it! Animals are close to my heart Mark, have been donating time and dosh to 'Moon Bear Rescue' for years. They rescue bears from bile farms in China, very sad but happy when the bears get to live out the remainder of their days in a lovely environment.

Bile farms? That sounds awful. Rachy, please do start a new thread sometime to tell us more about this and let's see if we can do something to help.
