International Estate Administration

Where a person dies leaving assets in more than one country, technical rules relating to the distribution of that person’s assets apply.

We have gained particular experience in this area. Below are some of the ways in which we can assist personal representatives of cross-border estates.

  • Extract grants of representation in Ireland (grant of probate, letters of administration, letters of administration with Will annexed)
  • Advise in relation to the sale of Irish estate assets and transmission of property on death
  • Realise estate assets and remit net proceeds to non-resident personal representative in accordance with terms of a foreign Will and/ or international succession law
  • Issue urgent court proceedings to protect estate assets in Ireland
  • Register cautions in the Property Registration Authority of Ireland to protect estate assets
  • Provide an Affidavit of Foreign Law
  • Advise in relation to Irish succession law, Irish private international law and the EU Succession Regulation.
  • Advise in relation to Irish inheritance tax rules and availability of reliefs
  • Advise on the availability of relief from double taxation
  • Advise on the terms of a Will Trust and establishing Will Trust for Minors or Vulnerable Persons

Dealing with an estate which consists of assets in multiple jurisdictions can be daunting for a personal representative seeking to administer an estate or to an individual who wishes to know the extent of assets available to him/her to satisfy a claim. An experienced solicitor in this area will ensure you receive the best advice and service available to resolve your issue as quickly and as efficiently as possible.
