Probate & Estate Administration
Bereavement can leave your mind in turmoil as you struggle to come to terms with your loss. Coping with the everyday can be hard enough, so the prospect of perhaps unfamiliar legalities associated with it can be daunting to say the least.
Confusingly, the term ‘probate’ is used to describe the grant of probate as well as the process involved in obtaining it. This can be quite complex and includes various things such as making an inheritance tax return and paying any tax due, sorting out income tax and pensions, collecting in the estate from banks, building societies and selling assets, settling any debts owed to the estate and paying money due, and gifts of items to beneficiaries, along with preparation of accounts for the estate.
Our team will help guide you through the probate administration process and the various steps which you need to take, using straightforward language, rather than complicated legal jargon. We will deal with the process in an empathetic, efficient and cost effective manner.
Please note: You can use our services even if the Will is held with another firm. You do not have to use the solicitors who prepared the original Will.
