International Succession of Estates
Thursday 31 July 2014, 11:30 - 14:00

About this Seminar

This will be a panel discussion relating to the international or cross border succession of estates, both concerning the Singaporean client and foreign client leaving assets in Singapore and elsewhere. The panel will also address the will planning that is involved in the probate and succession process.

Other areas within the scope of discussion include the following:

  • How does the domicile of a person impact the succession of his estate and his liabilities upon death?
  • Is there a difference in succession for movables and immovable?
  • When is there a need for a foreign lawyer’s legal opinion on succession of the foreign deceased?
  • How do the forced heirship rules of foreigners from certain countries and family inheritance provisions laws impact the succession of their assets in Singapore?
  • What are the procedures for obtaining the letters of representation in Singapore and why is there a need for the Schedule of Assets to be filed?
  • What are the issues surrounding intestacy and need for sureties?
  • When is it appropriate to apply for a resealing of a Grant instead of a fresh application?
  • Many private banking clients open investment accounts through an offshore company; how does one deal with the succession of offshore company shares?
  • What is the advice for persons acquiring cross border real estate?
