International estate lawyer: Expert legal advice

What is an international estate?

After a death, it's often the case that any fixed assets the person had abroad, such as a house, fall under the laws of that country. This is the international estate. The rules and regulations that govern these assets can be complex and confusing due to the differing laws in different countries and their relation to UK law.
