My wife owns a house in Normandy in her own right, I have no title in it for reasons of inheritance (a previous marriage with adult children). She also owns our English property, again in her own right.
In her Will, her English property goes to our three adult children in equal parts. At present, her French property is not the object of any written Will. She thinks that under French inheritance laws it will go automatically to her/our children (not my children of another marriage), but I’m not so sure, and we need advice. Should she include it in her English Will? Or should she write a French Will and, if she does, should that Will include her English estate?
We are domiciled in France and don’t intend to go back to UK. We are both in our seventies.
Any advice will be very much appreciated.
