Resealing a Grant

When a Grant of Administration is obtained in one province, but the person who died has additional assets and property in another province or even another country, the local court in that location must confirm the grant, a process known as resealing.

Personal Representatives should undertake the application with assistance from a lawyer, as it can be time-consuming and complicated.

If someone you love died intestate in Alberta or does not have a Personal Representative able or willing to act, contact Estate Connection for legal advice and guidance. Being a Personal Representative is challenging, but we can help you make it possible to settle the estate the way your loved one would have wanted.

Did you know…It may be more cost-effective to execute a Last Will and Testament in each province that you hold assets or property (as opposed to resealing a Grant).  If you have questions or you are an Executor dealing with this type of situation our office can help!
