I received the following message this morning from an on-line networking group that I belong to. It might be of interest to those of you who own property overseas:
Hi guys, I subscribe to Holiday Home Expert - it emails every day on articles in the press to do with owning property abroad. The most recent article I've come across has got alarm bells all over it!
The article encourages you to look at thewww.overseaswills.co.uk website . The founder of this website has found that even if you legally leave your property to your descendents in your will authenticated in the UK, it still doesn't mean that they would be the main beneficiaries in say, Bulgaria. He set up this service to advise Britons with holiday homes abroad so that they can be sure that the property they own will go to whoever they want it to after their death.
