About the consultation

The Government of Jersey is seeking to amend the Probate (Jersey) Law 1998 to provide new arrangements for the management of movable estate in Jersey, where the total value of that estate does not exceed more than £30,000 and subject to certain conditions.

The aim is to allow people (for example, care providers or banks) who are holding the moveable estate of decreased people (for example, cash or jewellery) to release that moveable estate to another person (for example, a family member) where that other person has agreed to be accountable for the estate.

We would welcome comments from members of the public and other professional stakeholders, for example care providers, funeral directors and members of the banking and legal community.
