Resealing of Foreign Grants
Applications can be made by persons who have obtained a grant of representation from foreign courts in respect of the estates of persons who died domiciled outside the Cayman Islands leaving assets or property within the Islands.
Resealing is a procedure by which a grant of representation obtained in another probate jurisdiction is sealed with the seal of the Grand Court which renders the foreign grant of like force and effect in the Islands as a grant made in the jurisdiction in which the original application was made.
- It is a convenient and expedient procedure as it obviates the necessity of applying for a local grant which would otherwise be necessary.
- The Probate and Administration Rules (2001 Revised) sets out the provisions for the grant of resealing.
