Will for All Assets Except Those in Estonia

I have a client who is domiciled in England but with immoveable assets in Estonia. Is there any downside to preparing a will in England that covers all worldwide assets except those in Estonia and advising the client to prepare a separate will of her assets in Estonia?

I’d restrict to England & Wales assets with separate Will for Estonia. Consider requesting copy of Estonian Will to keep with the one you prepare. I’ve just done similar for clients with a property in Tenerife.


Out of interest, why would you not rely on Brussels IV in this instance?

Could be that the client is domiciled in E&W but only has Estonian nationality (in which case I don’t think a B4 election works in the same way), or that she is happy for the Estonian property to pass under the lex situs.
