Something about the

EU Regulation on Successsion (2012/650)

In august of 2015 EU adopted a regulation on succession. It regulates which country that has jurisdiction to rule on an inheritance case but also which law that should be applicable on said case.

The country in which the deceased had their habitual residency is the country in which the case should be administered and handled. No regards are taken to if that country is within or outside of the EU.

In the same manner it is the legislation of the country in which the deceased was habitualy residing that determines the right to inherit and that is the applicable law on the inheritance.

The deceased can also in a last will and testament choose the applicable law to be that of the deceased's citenzenhip's country.

In the cases where a choice of law has been made the heirs to the estate can, if they all agree, move that case to the country that was chosen in the last will and testament. If a Swedish citizen who had his habitual residency in the USA and had chosen Swedish law the heirs can choose to move the case to a Swedish court and that court will then instead have jurisdiction to rule on the case.


The regulation determines if a case should be put before a Swedish court or not, which law is applicable on the inheritance, if an estate inventory should be set up and so on.

In cases where an estate owns assets in another EU-country or in cases where an estate, that is handled under the jurisdiction of a non EU country, owns assets in Sweden

it is possble to apply for a European Certificate of Succession by the Swedish Tax Agency. With this certificate is then possible to handle the assets in Sweden.r. 

In some cases there is a possibility for a Swedish court to rule on an inheritance case even though the court that normally has jurisdiction is one outside of the EU.

The regulation causes many questions regarding applicable law, jurisdiction, how an inheritance case should be handled, where the habitual residency actually was and so on. We are here to help guide you through this.

Something about the

EU Regulation on Matrimonial Property (2016/1103)

Since the end of January 2019 the Eu regulation on Matrimonial property is in effect. It regulates which countries courts should deal with the division of matrimonial assets and in accordance to which countries laws that should be done.

In the case where the division is due to a divorce there are different circumstances that determines which country's court has jurisdiction to rule on the case. These can be found in the Brussel II regulation and can for instance be the spouses' last joint habitual residency.

In the cases where the division is done due to one of the spouses passing it is instead the court that has jurisdiction to rule on the inheritance that also has jurisdiction to rule on the division of the matrimonial assets.

The regulation also allows the spouses to choose applicable law on the division of their matrimonial assets by setting up a choice of law contract.

It also contains rules on which law should be applicable on the division. The case might be tried in one country that is to apply another country's laws when deciding on the matter.

When it comes to applicable law on division of matrimonial assets of spouses who got married before the regulation went into force it does not regulate the applicable law for those divisions unless the spouses after it came into force made a choice of law in a contract between them.

The firm has many years experience in dealing with these kind of cases and is happy to represent or counsel you. We also set up prenuptual agreements, choice of law agreements and deal with divisions of matrimonial assets.
