Civil Law is the cornerstone of the entire Spanish legal system and the branch of law that regulates the most immediate issues that affect people and their assets or rights.
Civil Law is the law of people and, therefore, it is present in the actions we carry out daily, regulating areas as varied as family, inheritances, the signing of contracts such as the purchase of a new house, a rental or a mortgage, donations, as well as other matters related to the incapacitation of a person, his or her rights as an owner of a house, etc.
In the Balearic Islands, it rules an own civil law that is very present in family contexts, as it regulates, basically, marriage and inheritance issues.
