International probate administration

Are you acting as an executor for the will of someone who died abroad or held assets outside the UK? Perhaps your family moved to Australia, or parents retired to Spain or France and had property there. Or you could be dealing with a will that involves shares held in the US.

Dealing with probate overseas – or resealing probate, as it’s known – can be extra tricky. It’s not just language barriers. You’re dealing with countries that have unfamiliar legal systems.

Our overseas probate team offers the same bespoke service that we provide for UK-only estates, to those whose loved ones had lived abroad, died abroad or had assets overseas.

Our overseas probate service

Let our London-based probate specialists deal with authorities in other countries for you. They understand the different legal systems and have a track record of tracing and recovering assets held abroad.


Free quotes and fixed, transparent pricing structure

We’ll give you a price based on what you ask us to do and that won’t change. We charge per task, rather than on the size or complexity of the probate task. We’re happy to take our fee from the proceeds of the estate.
