Wildy's Book of the Month: August 2015

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.
