Resealing UK Probate in the USA

There are different probate laws and rules in the US and UK, regrettably the USA is not recognised by the Colonial Probate Act of the UK. This means that the US Letter of Testamentary, an equivalent of Grant of Probate in the UK, cannot be resealed in the UK.

Resealing UK Assets

This demands that a new probate application has to be made in the UK. The procedure varies as to whether a UK Will exists. Ordinarily, the will need to see a sealed and certified copy of the U.S issued probate papers. After the application is made in the UK, the grant will be issued and the appointed executors or administrators of the deceased’s estate will be able to deal with the UK assets.

Typically, they will be the executors named in the will or administrators if the deceased died intestate.
