PROBATE & ESTATE ADMINISTRATION

Dealing with the death of a loved one can be a difficult and stressful time and this is recognised by our experienced and sensitive Private Client Team. We regularly act both as professional Executors and advise lay Executors as to their roles and responsibilities in the administration of an estate. Acting as an Executor can be a burdensome and lengthy task but we can provide guidance through the administration, from beginning to end.

We also provide costs estimates from the outset of the matter and can provide advice on Inheritance Tax, Capital Gains Tax and Income Tax liabilities, as required.

Examples Of Our Experience: Estate Administration

We acted for the family of an elderly couple who were found to have passed away virtually at the same time as one another. The circumstances of their deaths, and therefore how their respective estates would devolve, was unclear. We advised the family on the inquest process and in respect of the resulting administration of the estates and probate procedures, locating a will for the gentleman and verifying the intestacy of his wife. We duly administered both estates, located heirs under the will and intestacy, and distributed the residue accordingly.
