Execution of Wills

Post by Rudi10 » Wed Feb 10, 2021 12:33 pm

A Finnish friend's mother recently died and my friend was the sole beneficiary of the estate. The family had lived in Germany and Sweden and well as Finland of course, and apparently had to provide documentation regarding this in order for the will to be executed. Church records from Finland covered where they had lived in Finland and I believe in Sweden. Getting any documentation from Germany was impossible since she couldn't remember the address from when she was very young and they are still trying to resolve the issue.

My question is whether, if an EU citizen resident in Finland and married to a Finnish national dies, does the same information regarding where in Europe that person has lived over the years also need to be provided?

The documentation needs to be provided for everyone who needs estate inventory (perunkirjoitus) so yes.
