I Inherited Property In Israel. What Must I Do To Transfer This Real Estate To My Name?

To transfer inherited property in Israel to your name, you’ll need to go through a process that involves the Israeli court system and the Land Registry. Here’s an overview of the steps involved:

  1. Obtain a Probate Order: The crucial first step is to obtain a probate order from an Israeli court. This order is the key to officially recognizing you as the rightful heir to the property under Israeli law. You may need to hire an Israeli lawyer to assist you with this process, which can involve submitting documents such as the deceased’s death certificate, will (if applicable), and proof of your relationship to the deceased.
  2. Register the Inheritance at the Land Registry (Tabu): Once you have the probate order, you must register the inheritance at the Israeli Land Registry (Tabu). This involves submitting the probate order and other relevant documents to the Tabu office. There may be fees associated with this registration.
  3. Transfer of Ownership: The final step, though it may seem complex, is straightforward. You need to officially transfer the ownership of the property to your name. This involves submitting the necessary paperwork to the Tabu, which will then update its records to reflect you as the new owner.
