Probate in Jersey
Viberts’ private client team specialises in providing expert probate services. We have one of the largest and most experienced teams in Jersey.
Viberts assists individuals, law firms and institutions to obtain grants of probate in Jersey for those who have died domiciled in Jersey, in order to release the asset(s) held here. Viberts also offers professional executor services for those who are unable to undertake the role of executor or administrator themselves.
Where a person dies with assets in Jersey, a Jersey grant of probate (where there is a will) or letters of administration (where there is no will) is required by any Jersey financial institution holding assets before those assets are released. There will also be matters such as tax, inventories and valuations, stamp duty, house clearance and estate distributions to consider.
The administration of the estate can seem daunting and time consuming. If you are the executor named in a will of someone who has died, or you are the loved one of a deceased family member, Viberts can offer sensitive and tailored advice in relation to the probate process, stamp duty considerations and the steps necessary to undertake the estate administration and distribution.
