    Canadian Probate


    Canada is country with a very similar probate process to that of the UK, as a result of this Canada is a country recognised under the UK’s Probate Colonial Act which means that canadian probate can be resealed in the UK, which then enables the collection of UK assets.

    We regularly help clients and lawyers from Canada with reseal applications in the UK. The documents we would typically require are :-

    • The death certificate
    • Sealed copies of the will and probate papers from the Court
    • Details of the assets to be collected

    Quebec probate in the UK

    Probate obtained in Quebec cannot be resealed in the UK. This means that a separate application for probate must be made in the UK. Due to the very different legal system in Quebec, an affidavit of foreign law is required in the Uk clarifying the legal process that has been followed. The affidavit would be signed by a Notarie.

    If you are a foreign lawyer or administer and need help collecting assets in the UK if the deceased died in Quebec contact us now.
