Medallion Signature Guarantee

Probate in Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man

If you are involved in an estate which has assets in the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man, you may find that a separate probate application is needed in order to manage those assets.

Many banks hold funds ‘offshore’ in these areas as they benefit from a higher rate of interest or have tax benefits. Often these funds originate from the UK, but have been moved offshore by the investor in order to take advantage of these financial gains.

Our international probate team has extensive experience in obtaining probate and managing estates with assets held in Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man. Please see our PDF on the right for more information about getting probate in Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man.
