Ask a French Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi My Name is ***** ***** . I have just learned that my family are beneficiaries of my great Uncle who owned a property in the centre of Paris. I will endeavour to explain the situation and am seeking someone who knows their way around the french legal system and who is not going to provide me with the word 'impossible'. Back Ground. My Father- Mr Bijan xxxxxx living in Tehran (Iran)-My Uncle - Mr Kambiz xxxxxx ( My fathers brother) Now deceased. were sole beneficiaries of their late Uncle Mr Hossain Gholi xxxxx who died in 1993 in Paris France where he had lived for many years after the revolution in Iran in the late 70's. The property was owned soley in his name. It has been a roller coaster ride for the people in my family especially my father who fled from Iran as he was one of the Kings men. He fled to United States where he lived for approximately 37 years. He returned to Iran in July 2014 and is situated there currently. My cousin- Mr Ali xxxxx is now the joint beneficiary with my father Bijan xxxxx in the matter of the Estate belonging to Mr Hossain Gholi xxxx . Because I am British and I just happen to be living in France I am tasked with the duty of finding out what has happened to the property in the centre of paris. My understanding is that there was a groundsman or general maintenance person who would have been aware of my great Uncles death and who would have seen that the property was just sat empty and we believe that someone has occupied the property and all the Louis 16th furniture that was inside that belonged to the deceased. I want someone to provide me with a land registry search that will identify the date of acquisition that Mr Hossain Gholi Kiani purchased. And will provide any other information as to what has happened to the ownership. I am intending to drive to this address on 29th October to check it out in person. But I am looking for someone that can assist me with the research and possible action that will need to be taken to take occupancy and ownership into my fathers and cousins name. My contact number is ***** My email is: xxxxxxxxxx.
