We understand that if a loved one has died, the thought of dealing with their financial affairs and estate can be an upsetting, and daunting prospect. At what it is a difficult and emotional time, we believe it’s our job to not only ensure that the estate is processed correctly and efficiently, but that it is as stress-free as possible for you and your family.
Our expert probate lawyers have many years experience in dealing with estates of various complexities, and can guide you through the process.
Supporting you through the process
In our experience, some families like us to deal with everything to do with administering the estate, whereas other clients just want hand-holding through the completion of the necessary forms – our approach is flexible and tailored to you.
Our services cover the entire process of administering and dealing with a person’s estate, including applying for a Grant of Probate, dealing with Inheritance Tax issues and distributing assets.
We are also able to help if you have been appointed as an Executor of an estate of someone who has died recently and want to know what your responsibilities are.
In other situations, our lawyers are appointed as executors of an estate themselves, which can be extremely beneficial as we are well-placed to provide a sensitive and independent view of any issues or complexities that may surround the estate.
If you have any questions about administrating an estate, or want to understand how we can help make the process as quick and smooth as possible, please do contact us for an informal discussion.
For further information, please refer to our estate administration information sheet which provides an overview of the entire process from start to finish. It also contains a glossary of helpful definitions to help you understand the language of administrating an estate – for example, the roles of an executor and beneficiaries and what is meant by ‘grant of administration’.
