Wills, Probate and Realty administration

Guernsey inheritance law has been changed by the States very considerably in recent years in order to bring it into line with human rights obligations. It is now more complex than it ever was and it is more important than ever to seek advice from an advocate to make sure that your Wills are capable of giving effect to your wishes.

Where your relative dies but has not made a Will of Guernsey realty, or leaves a Will of Guernsey realty which does not specifically name the beneficiaries, you may need to apply for an Administration Order to overcome the title issue which these omissions sometimes create; we are experienced in dealing with such applications.
