Israeli Inheritance and Succession Lawyers

The courts of Israel have jurisdiction over the estate of any person who resided in Israel at the time of his or her death or who left behind property in Israel. Under the Israeli Succession Law of 1965, such a person’s estate may be distributed in two ways:

By Will or A Trust

If a person passes away with a valid will, then the person’s estate should be distributed according to his or her wishes. As straightforward as that may seem, the Israeli probate process can be challenging we will keep it simple and clear for you. Aharoni Law Firm can help you to administer the estate of a deceased loved one in Israel by tracking down estate assets, serving and notifying beneficiaries, preparing and filing petitions, marshaling and distributing estate assets, and resolving related capital gain tax (No estate tax in Israel) issues if any. We also assist clients in Canada with creating wills and trusts and with handling disputes that may arise concerning the validity of a will or trust.

By Law

If a person passes away without a will or has estate assets that the will fails to bequeath, those assets must be distributed according to Israel’s rules of intestate succession. These rules establish the identity of heirs (spouse, children, parents, grandparents, and siblings) and spell out their respective inheritance rights, including the order of inheritance and the apportionment of the estate’s assets.

It is important to know that the Israeli Succession Law provides a right to maintenance out of an estate to a spouse, children, or parents of a decedent who require financial support, regardless of whether the decedent left a valid will. Additionally, tax issues may arise after one acquires property in Israel and either continues to own the property or chooses to sell it.

Our dedicated Israeli attorneys assist clients in Canada at every stage of the inheritance process. We are well-versed in Israeli probate and succession laws. We can offer clients hands-on experience filing applications for probate and succession orders and litigating disputes in Israeli family court. We aim to make the probate process go as smoothly and efficiently as possible for you.

Israeli Real Estate Law, Property Law, and Location of Abandoned Property in Israel

Aharoni Law Firm helps clients in Canada with a wide range of Israeli residential and commercial real estate matters, including:

  • Searching the legal rights and title connected to the property through the appropriate registry (or registries) and collecting important documents such as the official extract before you buy or sell the property
  • Lending assistance with negotiating and securing a mortgage, including a mortgage for a second home which is located in Israel
  • Drafting, negotiating, and executing contracts for real estate purchases in Israel, including contracts for residential and commercial properties
  • Registering and transferring all property rights through the appropriate Israeli authorities
  • Representing clients in Israeli courts if any legal disputes occur involving land, title, and real estate.

For many years, we have helped clients across Canada locate and reclaim abandoned property in Israel. Often, the heirs or beneficiaries we represent did not even know about the property until they received a letter from the State of Israel notifying them of the Israeli property. We guide them through the process and use our in-depth knowledge of Israeli probate, succession, and real estate law to handle every aspect, from establishing ownership rights to selling the property if they choose to do so. We also help our clients understand and address tax implications, and we take careful steps on their behalf to protect their interests and maximize their equity.

Looking forward to hearing from you and simplifying the matter.
