Administration of Estates & Probate
When someone dies‚ their Executors are responsible for administering the deceased’s estate in accordance with their Will. Usually‚ the first step is to prepare the necessary documentation to apply for Probate and this is where we can help.
We can assist Executors to carry out their duties competently and effectively and keep the family and beneficiaries informed about progress along the way. Our team is experienced in dealing with complex estates and we will correspond with relevant financial organisations and arrange professional valuations of assets. We can establish whether Inheritance Tax is payable and consider whether it is possible to reduce this liability.
Our work may also involve the transfer or sale of assets‚ arranging the funeral‚ completing all tax affairs and locating and contacting beneficiaries.
