International estates - 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.

International estates services

We have a team of dedicated solicitors who have extensive practical knowledge of estates in other countries. We understand exactly how different legal systems interact with each other, so we can help you make sense of all the relevant rules. We help with:

  • global Wills and Wills limited to UK assets 
  • resealing foreign grants of representation 
  • UK grants of representation of a foreign will 
  • succession planning with assets in more than one country 
  • inheritance tax planning 
  • sorting tax issues when couples do not share a common UK domicile for tax purposes.
