Will


Document Legalisation

When managing the estate of the deceased overseas there are several documents that may require legalisation. Namely, the grant of probate, the last will and testament and the death certificate.

Our apostille service will ensure your the document is correctly legalised with the apostille certificate so that the document will be accepted in an official capacity abroad.

Legalising a will with the apostille is ONLY £54* per document on our 1-2 day service.

If the will has not been certified by a UK solicitor or notary or if the will has not been stamped by the probate office then this will require solicitor certification in order to be eligible for the apostille. The fee for the solicitor certification and apostille service is £66.00.

Do you have additional documents that require the apostille?

When managing the estate of the deceased overseas there are several documents that may require legalisation. Namely, the grant of probate, the last will and testament and the death certificate. The last will and testament is usually annexed to the grant of probate and, when this is the case, both the grant of probate and the will can be legalised as one document. It is advisable to check with the local authorities overseas to clarify which documents require legalisation. We can assist with the legalising the will and the associated documents.
