I have recently inherited a small house. I need to make a Spanish will leaving it to my husband or in the event of his death, my son. Can I just go to the notary to do this or must I involve a solicitor? If I can use the notary will I need to take a translator - I don't speak Spanish. Thanks.

You only need a notary.  He/she will draw it up.   I have known them draw attention to things which may be potentially a problem, and to advise. 

 Even if you use a lawyer, the document can only be authorised by a notary. So you would be paying twice for the same thing of you use a lawyer. Of course, if it is very complicated you may think a lawyer is a good idea,

I amd my family have made several Wills, all drawn up by notaries, over the past 25+ years without any problems.  For son, who has little Spanish,  they even provided a copy in English too.
