Our International Probate Service

International probate isn’t simply about overcoming language barriers. It also demands a working knowledge of foreign legal systems, and how they relate to UK probate law.

Probate London has a specialist team of international probate experts, helping those whose loved ones passed away as overseas residents or held assets in foreign jurisdictions – or both.

Our international team deals directly with tax and legal authorities in other countries every day, and fully understands the different legal systems. As such, we have an excellent track record of tracing and recovering assets held abroad, and avoiding unnecessary taxes.

Let Probate London make overseas probate easier

Our London-based team of friendly probate professionals is on hand for expert help with overseas probate.

A free phone call or in-person conversation is your first step to handing over the burden of dealing with different legal jurisdictions. As proven experts, we’re equipped to deal with the issues that can arise from dealing with language barriers and unfamiliar legal systems.

Call us on 020 8017 1029 to arrange your free, no-obligation consultation with a Probate London advisor. We’re available until 10pm every night, or you can send us a message online if you prefer.
