AFAIK a Scottish will cannot deal with property outside Scotland. This has to dealt with under the legislation of the other countries.

Can I also mention the difficulty I am having with building societies who are refusing to close the accounts and transfer money into my account despite the fact I am the executor and inheritor and the will clearly states this. They are insisting on waiting until grant of confirmation which I am told can take up to 6 months. They finally agreed to pay for funeral expenses (very expensive) and it took the Nationwide Building Society 10 days to draw cheques for the costs. In the meantime the suppliers were quite cross with me as they had to wait to be paid. The amount of money is well below the threshold for grant of compensation but they are taking into account the property my mother owned. It is terribly harrowing at a time when you are grieving. I was so worried about how I was going to pay for the funeral expenses when really it shouldn't have been a problem as my mother left money to cover all the costs. Pippa1
