British Probate

Has Brian any advice on British Probate? Chris.

The idea of taking out a Probate on the Will of a deceased person gives the legal authority to the executor named in the Will to effectively stand in the shoes of the deceased person and distribute the estate in accordance with their wishes.  

 

The fact that Chris who wants to take out British Probate means that the person who has died either had assets in England or died domiciled in the U.K which would require British Probate to be extracted.   

 

Most Irish Law Firms can make arrangements to have British Probate extracted or alternatively refer this listener to a British Law Firm to do it.   It is a relatively straight forward matter (although it can take a bit of time) and Chris should see their own solicitor to make the necessary arrangements. It may be possible for him to do it himself but there may be multi-juristictional issues and Crown Revenue implications, not to mention double taxation problems.

The issues raised in the answer to this NewsTalk listener's question are dealt with in a general way as can only be the case on live radio. Before relying on the advice given in this answer, whether you heard the broadcast or are for the first time reading the issues here please do not rely on the broad advice given.
