Documents for an Application for Succession Order in Israel
- Two supporting documents proving the payment of the required fee. It is possible to pay through the internet payment services or through bank vouchers that have been paid in a postal bank – according to the prescribed rates in the Inheritance Regulations (Fees for the Registrar of Inheritance Issues) – 1998.
- An application for a succession order that is filled out as prescribed, signed by the applicant as a declarant and notarized by a lawyer, notary, judge, religious judge, or the head of the local authority.
- An original death certificate or a faithful copy of the original.
- Notices to all heirs and confirmation that the notice was sent via registered mail or a written confirmation signed by heirs that they are aware of the application’s submission.
- If the applicant is represented by an attorney, an original power of attorney or a faithful copy of the original.
The application and accompanying documents must be submitted in four complete sets: the original and three photocopies. An application for a succession order sent by registered mail will be given precedence over an application submitted at the Ministry of Justice reception desk.
