In international cases, the applicability of Dutch law is not always obvious. This also applies to the administration of estates. Following the succession and the transfer of property of estates, the administration is the third phase of the inheritance. It is used as to have the heirs received to that what they are entitled on. Jan-Ger Knot’s research focuses on the following question: what rule would be most suitable to decide on the law applicable to the administration of estates, from both Dutch and European perspective? From the Dutch point of view, Knot concludes that the rules on administration of (international) estates should be improved. Furthermore, he describes the most important elements of the choice of law rules on succession in Germany, England and France. Eventually, Knot presents a proposal for a European conflict rule for the administration of estates.
