My mum passed away just over a year ago and in her Spanish will has left some money to me and 5 other beneficiaries in an investment account Banco Popular.

The Taxes have all been sorted out by a solicitor and now the money is to be distributed. The solicitor is saying that the bank is requiring that each beneficiary MUST open a similar Investment account with them so that the money can be placed into each account. (Even though several of us are resident in the UK and they are asking for each of to provide proof of income and P60's). Surely if all beneficiaries sign to say they are happy for the money to be paid into one specific account this should suffice?, Do they have the right to force us to provide private our information  and require us to become customers when we don't wish to?

I see you are in Spain., I suggest you go to the bank.   Demand the complaints forms and complete one

There are three copies, written down the left hand long side is a note of which is yours, which is the banks and which is the consumers office. When signed by you and the bank, you keep two copies.

 If the bank have not resolved  the  matter to your satisfaction within  two  weeks take the consumers office copy to that office, at no cost to you they will pursue the claim.

I suggest then you call, email or otherwise contact the bank and tell them that is what you are going to do if they do not pay out immediately
