What you should know about making a Will for your Italian assets

It is best practise to have a separate Italian will for your Italian property. A UK will would be accepted in Italy – if it complies with Italian inheritance law. Currently in Italy you can’t leave your assets to anyone you want, rules of forced heirship require you to leave a certain percentage of your estate to the surviving spouse, children (if any) or to other close relatives (i.e. parents). Under Italian law, the children automatically inherit part of their parents’ estate.
