Wills, Probate and Estate Planning

Parslows provide specialist will writing services to Jersey residents and non-domiciled clients holding Jersey assets.

If you live and own assets in Jersey, whether real estate and/or movable, it is essential to make a Jersey Will. Having a Will in place ensures your wishes will be dealt with as you determine, with careful consideration given to family and financial circumstances. If you decide not to make a Will, or don’t get around to it, Jersey law will dictate who will inherit.

If you don’t live in Jersey but own Jersey assets, you should consider drafting a Jersey Will for non-residents to deal with your assets. Any Will made outside Jersey may not account for the assets here in Jersey, and you run the risk of becoming intestate upon your death. Parslows Jersey Wills experts regularly advise on, and draft, Wills for UK and worldwide individuals with assets in Jersey.

Writing a Jersey Will is an integral part of ensuring that your family receives the assets you wish to leave to them. If you don’t have a Jersey Will when you die, your beneficiaries will be decided upon by the law of Jersey. This may not be the way you would choose to leave things. If you want your assets shared the way you wish, then making a Jersey Will is vital for your next of kin.

We can also advise and assist you in making a Lasting Power of Attorney to give someone you trust the authority to make decisions on your behalf if you lose mental capacity later in life.

Jersey Probate Law

Parslows are Jersey probate specialists.

Probate is the legal process where the estate of a deceased person is dealt with. An executor will be named to administer the estate where a person has made a will. If there is no will, the next of kin will be appointed by the probate court as administrators instead. Probate provides the executor or the administrator legal authority to administer the estate.

We work with executors or administrators in Jersey, the UK and worldwide to assist with Jersey Probate applications. The type of Jersey probate application and the documentation required will depend on where the deceased was domiciled.
