No, it’s not. Administration Service only covers simple New Zealand-based assets and liabilities. However, we can assist you with property management as part of the Estate Service.
It depends on which country it is. The only jurisdiction to have express recognition of New Zealand probates and letters of administration is England and Wales. Other jurisdictions will accept New Zealand grants of proof where reciprocal arrangements exist. Where there are no reciprocal arrangements a new grant of probate is required. Note that insurance companies will have their own specific requirements which may include re-sealing the New Zealand probate in that country's court.
