Resealing of a Grant of Probate/Letters of Administration is the process of obtaining the subsequent authorisation by a Court of a second country after the Grant has been obtained in the Court of first country.
By way of illustration, if a Malaysian died in Malaysia with assets in both Malaysia and Singapore, it is common for the original Grant of Probate/Letters of Administration to be obtained from a Malaysian Court and then resealed in Singapore.
It is important for the assets of deceased in the second country to be included in the list of assets of the original Grant of Probate/Letters of Administration of the Court of the first country.
If the Grant of Probate/Letters of Administration is to be resealed in Singapore, English translations of some documents are required by our Courts.
