I am a foreigner who owns a condo in Singapore. I wish to will it to my relative who is a Singaporean. Can I include this in the will I prepared in my home country, or must I create a separate will in Singapore for this asset?

    It is recommended that you execute a will in Singapore in respect of your assets in Singapore. If the Singapore asset has only been included in the foreign will, administrator(s) of your estate will have to apply for a fresh grant of letters of administration. A sworn statement from a foreign solicitor may have to be obtained stating that the persons who wish to deal with the deceased’s assets in Singapore are the persons who have the legal right to do so.
