The prevalence of individuals holding assets overseas has risen over recent years. In the event of a death an executor will manage how these assets are distributed and, when this involves assets based overseas, the executor will need to provide certain documentation to the authorities in the jurisdiction where the assets are held.
Typically, the executor will need to provide the death certificate, a grant of probate and the last will and testament. (The last will and testament is commonly annexed to the grant of probate and this can be classed as one document for the Apostille process.)
When assets are held overseas these documents would need to be legalised. There may be additional documents required but this would be determined the requirements of the local authorities in the country in which the assets are held.
If you require assistance with legalising a grant of probate or any of the associated documents please get in touch.
