Now it seems clear, post referendum, that British wills will not be accepted in France under EU regulations we are again conscious that we need to make a French will. The last time we tried the notaire said, after, so she said, consulting a knowledgeable colleague, that all our assets in the UK would be covered by our English wills and only our assets in France needed to be considered under French inheritance law. As this seemed, on the basis of advice received in the UK before we moved here, to be completely wrong we did not pursue it, particularly as the promised written advice never materialised. We left matters in the hope that the EU regulations would take care of the position.
We would rather not get inaccurate advice again and wondered if anyone on SFN could recommend a notaire in the Indre who might be able to advise us?
