It is not possible to re-seal letters of administration in Jersey (required for intestate) and, as such, a full application for a Jersey letters administration must be made.
In these circumstances, you can appoint a member of Parslows Jersey probate team as an attorney administrator to act on your behalf in Jersey. (Different rules apply if the deceased was domiciled in the United Kingdom).
Under Jersey law, unless a Jersey estate is worth less than £10,000 at the date of death, a Jersey letters administration will be required to enable the personal representatives to administer the Jersey estate.
While there are no death duties, estate duty, inheritance tax or capital gains taxes in Jersey, stamp duty is payable.
|Value (at date of death)||Stamp duty|
|£00.00 – £10,000||Nil|
|£10,001 – £20,000||£100|
|£20,001 – £30,000||£150|
|£30,001 – £40,000||£200|
|£40,001 – £50,000||£250|
|£50,001 – £60,000||£300|
|£60,001 – £70,000||£350|
|£70,001 – £80,000||£400|
|£80,001 – £90,000||£450|
|£90,001 – £100,000||£500|
Thereafter, for each £10,000 (or part thereof) add £75.
The Probate Registrar will also levy a flat stamp duty fee on all applications. This is presently £80.
Please also note that the Royal Court Probate Department reserves the right to charge an additional sum of £75.00 for reviewing paperwork pursuant to an application.

It should be noted that all probate documentation will be retained permanently by the Probate Registrar in Jersey.
