Sometimes a Deceased person may have died abroad, but still left UK assets, such as money in a bank account, shares or a property. If this is the case, how are the UK assets released?
Typically, most UK financial institutions will require what is known as a Grant of Probate this is a legal document issued to the Executor named in the will.
If the deceased died in a Country recognised by the UK's Colonial Probate Act it may well be possible to have the foreign Grant of Probate (or the equivalent legal document appointing the Executor to administer the estate) formerly Resealed in the UK by the UK Court which is known as the Probate Registry.
