Hi there,I own a property in Italy, and I
I own a property in Italy, and I an wondering if my Canadian last will overrides the Italian law when it comes to inheritance.
I have a wife and two kids, should I die, in Italy the beneficiary would be 1/3 my wife, 1/3 my son, 1/3 my daughter.
However, in my last will here in Canada, my wife is the main beneficiary, and only if she is not living, then my children would get 50% each.
I read different opinions here and there, but according to what I read in Italy Magazine, I could add a clause which expressly states that I am electing for my own country’s inheritance legislation to apply to their Italian property.
If this is indeed the case, then it would be easy.
I am seeking for further opinions.
