Probate and letters of administration

Before assets situated in Bermuda, BVI or Cayman can be transferred following the death of the owner, a grant of probate or letters of administration must be obtained in the relevant jurisdiction.  In some cases, a grant obtained in a foreign jurisdiction can be re-sealed.

Harneys can advise on the requirements and obtain the appropriate grant in the relevant jurisdiction.

Harneys can also advise on and implement the transfer of assets to beneficiaries following receipt of the required grant.
