About Reseals

Reseals of New Zealand Probate and Administration are granted by the individual Supreme Courts of the states and territories of Australia.

The jurisdiction of the individual state's or territory's court is determined by the location of the estate's assets.

We are able to reseal a Grant of Probate, provided by the High Court of New Zealand into any of the Australian states and territories, and we will be able to help you determine which jurisdiction is appropriate.

Common Asset Categories

Bank Accounts

Australian bank accounts have "BSB" numbers which identify the locality of the branch managing the account. This location determines which state Supreme Court has jurisdiction to issue the Grant of Probate, Letters of Administration a Reseal.

Once a foreign Grant has been resealed in Australia most banks will usually accept the reseal regardless of the Supreme Court issuing the reseal, however a Supreme Court cannot issue the reseal where there are no accounts within its jurisdiction.

Shares

The location of the share registry for the holding determines the jurisdiction for the reseal. Common share registries include Link Market Services (Sydney) and Computershare (Melbourne).

Once a foreign Grant has been resealed anywhere in Australia, our brokers will be able to liquidate the shares for you.

Real estate

Each state and territory land titles office requires that their local state Supreme Court first issues a reseal of Probate or Letters of Administration before they are prepared to transfer the title into the executor's name.

Once the reseal is obtained we can assist with this transfer (known as the 'Transmission Application'), as well as providing in-house conveyancing services if a sale of the property is required.

If required, we can call in the estate assets for you, saving the hassel of dealing with multiple international organisations.

We deal with all Australian banks and financial institutions.
