The example being probate where beneficiary or executor or trustee resides in UK or Ireland and does not hold a passport and has no intention of ever setting foot in this country. I know it’s a little offline our property forum but worth a try. Author Posts The forum ‘Property Questions & Answers’ is closed to new topics and replies.
