We are a married British couple in the UK with two adult children and want to be sure our succession arrangements are still as effective as planned.
In 2004 we bought a second home in France for €200,000 (it is worth the same now), put in place a French marriage regime (communauté universelle) and made French wills (testaments olographes) so our French assets pass to the surviving spouse and thereafter to our children in equal shares. Separate English wills exclude the French assets. Is this setup still suitable, or should we look at invoking the 2015 EU regulation? J.W.
