Resealing of Foreign Grants of Probate in Singapore – Fees from $4900
At PKWA LAW, we frequently act for executors who wish to apply for resealing of the grant of probate in Singapore.
Fee for Resealing of Foreign Grants of Probate in Singapore – $4900
If a foreigner passes away in his home country, his next of kin would logically have probate done in the courts of his home country. If the foreigner has assets in Singapore, the financial institutions in Singapore would require the next of kin to produce a Singapore court order that recognises the next of kin as the executor. Thus, in this instance, we say that executor needs to apply to the Singapore courts to “reseal the foreign grant of probate”
Thus, if the deceased has died, and:
he is domiciled in any of the Commonwealth Countries or Hong Kong:
he has assets in Singapore; and
the executors have already obtained a Grant of Probate from his home country
then, the personal representative may apply for that Grant to be resealed in Singapore.
Upon resealing the foreign Grant, the legal representative may deal with the deceased’s assets in Singapore. This means he can produce the Resealing Court Order and deal with the financial institutions to request the monies or assets to be transferred to him.
In determining whether to grant a resealing grant of probate, the Singapore court must be satisfied that the original will and grant of probate were made according to the laws of the original jurisdiction.
At PKWA Law, we frequently act for executors who wish to apply for resealing the grant of probate regarding a deceased foreign national who has assets in Singapore.
Our fees for a Resealing starts from $4900.
