PREPARING FOR A FUNERAL

BURIAL OR CREMATION

For a burial, the funeral parlour gets in touch with the local cemetery to arrange the burial time and, if the deceased does not have a niche, to check for availability. In the case of cremation, the selection of an urn or other means of storing the ashes takes place.

PARTS TO THE SERVICE

Consideration should be given to the preferences of the deceased and those attending the funeral when planning the farewell ceremony. While many choose a wake in Spain, it's not obligatory. This is also the moment to choose flowers, remembrance items, the type of coffin, and more. An advisor is available throughout to assist the customer in making these decisions.

TYPE OF CEREMONY

At Serenity, you have the flexibility to select either a civil (lay) or religious ceremony, and customise it to your preferences with music, symbolic acts, or family speeches. Our team of advisers and civil celebrants is dedicated to offering a range of options to cater to all tastes.

INFORM FAMILY & FRIENDS

It's advisable to inform your closest family and friends first before notifying others. Your funeral director will provide you with a link to a webpage containing details about the wake room and the ceremony's time. This way, you can easily share this information with your family and friends.

What documents and paperwork has to be dealt with after a death?

social security registration

The process described is conducted at Social Security Customer Service and Information Centres. In addition to handling the necessary procedures related to the deceased individual, these centers also facilitate the application for benefits for the spouse, children, or other eligible family members. Furthermore, procedures for benefit cancellations can also be addressed at these centers.

LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT

The document is acquired approximately 15 days after the death by submitting the death certificate and a completed 790 form to the Regional Administrative Management of the Ministry of Justice. This document provides information about the existence of a will and specifies the notary who should be contacted to obtain further details.

DEATH OR LIFE INSURANCE

Crucial information to ascertain is whether the deceased held life or accident insurance. This information can be obtained approximately 15 days after death by submitting the death certificate to either the General Registry of Last Wills and Testaments or the Ministry of Justice. If the deceased had such insurance, it is necessary to locate the policy, verify the beneficiaries, and subsequently get in touch with the insurance company.

WILL OR DECLARATION OF HEIRS

The request for inheritance is initiated through the notary by submitting the death and last will and testament certificates. If there is no will, a deed of declaration of heirs must be created either before the court or a notary. This process is essential for the proper distribution of the inheritance among the legal heirs.

AWARD OF INHERITANCE

The process is conducted before a notary and is crucial for registering real estate in the Land Registry under the names of the heirs. While settling inheritance and gift taxes is not obligatory, this step is essential for ensuring the proper transfer of ownership of real estate assets to the rightful heirs.

TAX PAYMENTS

Six months following the death, it is necessary to settle inheritance and donations taxes at the Tax Authority of the autonomous community where the deceased resided. In the case of property, any gain on such property also requires payment to the Municipal Tax Office within this timeframe. These tax obligations are crucial elements in the post-death administrative process.
