We acted for the widow of a French national, who required the Court's permission to effect the sale of a French property on behalf of her minor daughter, F.
F owned the property jointly with numerous family members, as a result of their inheritance of the property under the French rules of forced heirship. A contract for sale had already been agreed between the family and a buyer before we were instructed.
In conjunction with our colleagues in the French department, we therefore worked quickly to obtain the necessary information and issue the application. Despite a short hearing being required, a sealed order was received within two weeks of sending the claim to be issued.
