We were instructed to deal with the estate of a person who died with assets in England and some shares in Trinidad and Tobago. We had to obtain a Grant in Trinidad and Tobago to enable us to sell the shares.
We contacted a lawyer to act on behalf on the executor and supplied them with all the information required to obtain a Grant in Trinidad and Tobago. We then awaited news of the Grant being issued.
In England, it normally takes between 2 and 10 weeks for the court to issue a Grant. 3 years and lots of chasing later, we finally received in the Grant from Trinidad and Tobago, and could start the process of selling the shares.
The reasons for delay included the registry in Trinidad and Tobago running out of paper!
