Administration of Estates

Probate

When someone dies leaving a Will, it may be necessary to apply to a court for a Grant of Probate to be able to deal with the assets in the estate. The Will outlines the wishes of the Deceased, but in order to carry out the wishes the Executor will need the official authority of the Grant to act. Sometimes, depending on the nature and value of the assets in the estate a Grant of Probate may not be required and we can advise you on this during an initial free consultation.

We can help you if you are the Executor named in the Will or the beneficiary. Our solicitors advise on how to collate the assets and liabilities in the estate. We advise on the interpretation of the Will. We prepare the probate application documentation including forms for the Inland Revenue. As well as draft Estate Accounts and the payment of taxes, and advise on the distribution of assets.

Our solicitors offer additional advice required concerning taxation and post death variations.
