This concise article-by-article commentary discusses all the crucial points of the new EU Regulation No. 650/2012 of 4 July 2012 on cross-border estates, with particular focus on the following issues: the law applicable to a succession being the law of the State in which the deceased had his habitual residence at the time of death, which is also relevant for jurisdiction for contentious succession matters, election as to the applicable law, recognition and enforcement, authentic instruments, the European Certificate of Succession. This book turns the Regulation into an easily understandable text for all users, practitioners, academics or students and - authored by members of the experts group that formulated the Commission's draft proposal from six European countries - reflects perspectives from differing legal systems.

This is the sixth report from the European Union Committee of the 2009-10 session and looks at the EU's Regulation on Succession (HLP 75, ISBN 9780108459757). In October 2009 the EU Commission proposed legislation which aims to simplify the law affecting those who die having exercised their right to free movement, either by moving to another Member State to live or by buying property in a Member State other than their own. The law of succession regulates how a person's property is dealt with on their death - including the mechanism for paying taxes and other creditors, establishing who is entitled to inherit the deceased's property and how that property is to be transferred to those entitled to it. Where this involves the law of more than one Member State complications arise which can have a significant impact since the people affected are likely to be emotionally vulnerable because of bereavement. The Committee states it welcomes the fact that the Commission has not proposed harmonisation of the substantive law of succession and support the Commission's underlying, and more limited, objective of prescribing which state's law ofsuccession is to apply to the whole of a deceased person's estate; but only to the extent of determining who is entitled to inherit what property. The Committee believes to go further puts at risk important interests, not least property rights, the collection of taxes and the protection of creditors. The Committee also identifies a serious defect in the EU's proposal that it could result in gifts made in the UK by deceased persons during their lifetime, including gifts to charity, being claimed back by their heirs, under a process known as clawback.

Clawback Law in the Context of Succession

This book offers a global solution for determining the law applicable to a claim to clawback an inter vivos gift from a third party within the context of a succession. The book aims to identify an appropriate and applicable legal framework which supports legal certainty for cross-border estate planning and protects the legitimate expectations of the relevant parties. This is an area of private international law that has yet to be handled satisfactorily – as can be seen by the inadequate treatment of clawback from third parties in the 1989 Hague Convention on the Law Applicable to Succession to the Estates of Deceased Persons, and the 2012 EU Succession Regulation.

Succession, Wills and Probate is an ideal textbook for those taking an undergraduate course in this surprisingly vibrant subject, and also provides a clear and comprehensive introduction for professionals. Against an account of the main social and political themes of succession law, the book gives detailed explanations of core topics such as alternatives to wills and the making, altering and revocation of wills. It also explains personal representatives and how they should deal with a deceased person's estate and interpret and implement the will. Gifts may fail, estates may be insolvent or a person may die intestate, without a will at all. Increasingly relatives and others seek to challenge the will, for example on the grounds of the testator's capacity or under the law of family provision. This third edition is edited, updated and revised to take account of new legislation and case law across all the relevant issues, including a new final chapter dealing with the potentially contentious issues that are becoming more central to professional work in the field of succession.

Since the Amsterdam Treaty of 1997 empowered the EC to adopt rules in the field of conflicts of laws, legal instruments have been adopted that provide common rules on issues that touch upon the day-to-day life of European citizens. There are now instruments covering jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters, family matters and maintenance obligations, and the law applicable to contractual and non-contractual obligations, legal separations and divorces. There is also legislation establishing swift procedures for recovering claims abroad, ie the European Enforcement Order, the European Order for Payment Procedure and the European Small Claims Procedure, and legislation regulating cross-border insolvency proceedings and judicial assistance in the field of service of documents, taking of evidence and access to justice. This long list of EU legislation is not exhaustive of EU conflicts of laws rules: numerous further provisions are scattered among other EU legislation, eg directives on consumer, labour and insurance contracts; company law; IP rights; securities; privacy; and so on. Besides this the European Court of Justice has issued many judgments addressing relevant aspects of the conflict of laws found in the acquis communautaire in this field. This book, which assembles all the relevant EU legislation and ECJ decisions in one place, provides a guide to the maze of legal instruments now in place, supplemented by brief commentaries identifying the leading principles and anticipating future developments.

The European Union is committed to achieving the goal of creating a network of instruments that will comprehensively cover almost all the aspects of private international law. This will significantly affect the freedom of national legislators to undertake their law-making tasks. However, these two proceedings should not be contrary. As this book demonstrates, European harmonization is being developed from the feedback of the national experiences. The book is the outcome of theoretical and practical research carried out by a group of legal experts from different specialties and jurisdictions. It includes several contributions in the fields of the recently adopted instruments of private international law (e.g., mediation in civil and commercial matters, maintenance obligations, or conflict of law rules on divorce), some national experiences when applying these instruments (in particular in the new EU Member States), and also, the ongoing works in order to review some current instruments (Brussels I) or to approve new ones (e.g., successions or matrimonial property regimes). In conclusion, the book offers an updated and critical contribution to the huge common task of elaboration of a European private international law adopted by the EU institutions.

Increasing numbers of people have connections with one country, but live and work in another, frequently owning property or investments in several countries. As such, international aspects arise in an increasing number of estates. Different countries may have separate arrangements for ownership, taxation, and succession. International Succession equips practitioners with the information necessary to navigate problems involving these different systems. Although lawyers would often advise only on the law of the jurisdictions in which they are based, seeking advice from lawyers in other countries, this book will save the practitioner the time - and expense - of ascertaining the basics concerning the inheritance systems in different countries, offering clear and easy to use information on the laws of inheritance and succession. Each country's report is based on responses to a comprehensive questionnaire that considers the practical issues arising from the jurisdiction's individual laws, making it easy for users to make specific comparisons between the laws of one country and another. The book covers over fifty countries with entries written by experts from each country, making it an invaluable resource for the busy practitioner. This title is an improved and expanded version of International Succession, edited by Louis Garb and published by Kluwer Law International, 2004. This edition, published in hardback form, will also be supplemented annually in between editions to update the individual country entries.

Smart estate planning can be complex, and if you need to plan across borders, that can be quite daunting. This book is for you if you live in Belgium and you want to understand how the rules work and how you draw up a valid will; you live in Belgium and you want to plan your estate in an efficient manner; you want to know what happens when you inherit from your parents in Greece; your children live in other countries; you have property in other countries; you have investments and bank accounts in other countries; your parents have set up a trust for your benefit.
