APPLICATIONS FOR A UK GRANT OF REPRESENTATION FOR NON UK DOMICILED PERSONS (the deceased was not resident in the UK).

This information relates to assets held in ENGLAND & WALES by a person domicilied overseas (and not domicilied within a Commonwealth or former Commonwealth country (contact us if you are not sure). 

 

If a Commonwealth Country Court has already issued a Grant of Representation, it can be re-sealed for use in England & Wales. So that is less of a challenge.

 

If you are dealing with assets (money & property, also known as 'Estate', or non-domicile Estate) of a person (the deceased) who was domiciled outside of England or Wales at the date of death, it is a more complicated process.

 

In these cases a UK Grant of Representation needs to be obtained from the Registry of the High Court of England & Wales.

 

This work can be complicated and very time consuming, especially if the Solicitor is not used to these types of applications.  Probate-Helper Lawyers are experts in helping overseas clients to obtain a UK Grant of Representation without the need for any visits to the UK.  We have dealt with so many of these cases since 1989 that a lot of time and money can be saved.

 

We won't bog you down with detail for a non-domicile application for a UK Probate or UK Letters of Administration.  We simply break the process down into manageable items and lead you through the entire processin plain English so you will not be overwealmed by the process.
