Nowadays, it is not at all uncommon for people to own property abroad. What this means is that when they die, their family have to deal with foreign rules and taxes.
The differences in procedures are often much greater than people imagine and can cause stress and delay.
There are also issues dealing with estates where the deceased was domiciled abroad but owned assets in the UK, so that a UK grant of representation is required.
Our private client team has dealt with numerous estates where the deceased owned property abroad, and we are frequently instructed to obtain UK grants for someone who has died domiciled overseas. We have contacts with lawyers overseas who speak English and understand our procedures here.
We can contact and liaise with the foreign lawyers and courts and we can organise the notarising and translation of documents, so that matters are dealt with as smoothly as possible. If you appoint us, we will be your point of contact and we will keep you updated on the progress of your matter.
