Dealing with property abroad | Islamic Wills – IslamicFinanceGuru
Generally when one has assets in a foreign country (especially immovable assets such as property or land), making a Will under the laws of the country in which the asset is located is advised. This is because it better enables your executors to deal with the assets in said country by giving them all necessary authority under domestic law. Some countries may accept Wills made under the jurisdiction of England & Wales – but this must be confirmed for the country you have assets in.
