Proper UK advice is essential for everyone who owns UK assets regardless of where they are domiciled. We can advise on whether a UK Will is needed, UK Inheritance Tax planning and how the UK estate can be administered after death.
For UK domiciled clients who are inheriting overseas property (such as a holiday home) we can identify and liaise with lawyers in the appropriate jurisdiction and work to get the inheritance to the client in as fast, tax efficient and cost effective way as possible.
Where UK assets form part of an overseas estate we can obtain a UK Grant of Probate or resealed Grant to allow access to the UK asset without delay. Ordinarily, a UK Grant can be available within four weeks of instruction. We frequently take instructions for this from both individuals and other professional firms.
