Wills and ​​Probate

When someone dies, there are a number of important tasks that need to be completed.

If the person died leaving a valid Will, then the named Executors take on this responsibility. In the absence of a valid Will, the person is said to have died “Intestate” and the Intestacy Rules determine who can be appointed as the Administrators of the estate. The role of Executor or Administrator can be an onerous one. The deceased’s estate may involve valuable or complex matters and an Executor or Administrator is personally liable for administering the estate correctly.

Many non-resident persons own real estate and/or hold bank accounts in the Cayman Islands. We frequently assist Executors and Administrators who require a grant of probate for letters of administration resealed in the Cayman Islands.

We have acted for clients advising on issues relation to:
  • wills; discretionary trust wills
  • Grants of probate and letters of administration
  • Resealing
  • powers of attorney; preparation and registration
  • estate administration; including variation of wills
  • long term care planning
  • contentious probate; trust matters and cross jurisdictional problems
  • will and trust construction and rectification claims
  • Guardianship of the person and the appointment of a Receiver over a patient
