Resealing probate obtained outside of the UK
If you are an Executor, Administrator, Attorney or Solicitor who has obtained probate outside the UK, we specialise in dealing with resealing probate applications in the UK.
Resealing probate arises when probate has typically been obtained in a former commonwealth country, recognised by the UK under the Colonial Probate Act. This Act allows the foreign probate to be Resealed in the UK by our Probate courts, which once undertaken then enables assets in the UK to be released such as shares, monies from a bank or the sale of a property. Example countries recognised under the Colonial Probate Act include, Australia, South Africa, Canada and New Zealand.
