Re: Certificate of Inheritance "Erbschein"

I am a citizen and resident of Canada. I own a small holiday apartment in Switzerland. I would like my wife to inherit it upon my death. I am being told that even if I create a separate Swiss will for this one asset, the Swiss respective office would still require the "Erbschein" from Canada. Does it mean that my heirs would still have to obtain a full Grant of Probate in Canada (expensive in my case, and I would like to avoid it)?

Yes.

That, and a certified copy of the death certificate.

Re: Certificate of Inheritance "Erbschein"

Thanks, Tom. You just confirmed what I have been obtaining in various vague responses from elsewhere. Really appreciated...
