EU change to wills law would overturn British tradition By Justin Stares in Brussels
Writing an errant child out of your will or leaving an apartment to a secret mistress would become illegal under legislation now working its way through the European Union machine.
The European Parliament has called for an approach to the law on bequests and succession such as that in France, where most of a deceased person’s estate must be left to close relations.
Adoption of this “reserved portion” principle would turn Britain’s ancient traditions on their head.
Members of the European Parliament want to establish common principles and a “European certificate of inheritance”, valid across the EU, to remove difficulties heirs face in taking possession of property left to them.
Solicitors in England said that the plan would be a “big departure”. In England if you have an apartment you can leave it to your mistress but in France you cannot.
Godfrey Bloom, MEP for the UK Independence Party, said: “Our system of wills has kept our agriculture viable. In France because of their reserved portion law, properties have been broken into small unviable pieces.”
