Married UK citizens. We own a Melbourne Australia flat. We are currently updating our Wills in the UK which benefit our 3 adult children.question. Do we need to have an Australian will, or, will our UK wills cover this?

Hi, I am Leon, a NSW Solicitor. I am reviewing your question and will reply again in a moment.

You can have 1 will in the uk

You can mention the property in Melbourn in that will.

But you haver to get the probate re-sealed in Victoria for it to be distributed as per the will.

You may consider 2 wills one in australia. If the unit is to go to an Uatralian Resident then they can deal with it here and no death duty paid in the UK

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you wish a phone call please elect for one but be aware it will be an additional fee. If there is nothing further thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.
