Probate procedure in Germany – special questions 2

Which court is competent, if the testator had left Germany and did not have residence there any more?

In this case, the local basic court is competent, where the testator had his/her last residence in Germany. 

Yet if the last will was deposited with a court in Germany, then this very court has competence.
