  • The Wills Amendment (International Wills) Act 2012 (Vic) commenced operation on 10 March 2015, and adopted into Victorian law the Uniform Law of the Form of an International Will contained in the UNIDROIT Convention.  The Uniform Law provides formal requirements for the creation of an ‘international will’ which, if complied with, allows a will to be recognised as valid as to form in all party countries.  While ‘international wills’ ostensibly simplify the processes of will execution and estate administration in circumstances where the testator is located outside Australia and/or owns property in other jurisdictions, there are complicating factors which must be considered when assessing whether they are appropriate for particular clients.  Richard Phillips examine the formal requirements for the creation of an ‘international will’, the implications of the legislation, and the key considerations practitioners must be aware of when dealing with an ‘international will’.  
     
    He also provides a brief overview of the changes to succession laws in the European Union, which commence operation in most EU member states in August 2015, and which will impact on clients who own property in those countries.
