Probate and Administration of Estate

Probate

When a loved one dies, our expert solicitors can assist the executors with the daunting task of dealing with the administration of the estate and fulfilling the terms of the Will. Our specialist lawyers will guide you through this process.

When a loved one dies, our expert solicitors can assist the executors with the daunting task of dealing with the administration of the estate and fulfilling the terms of the Will (or the Intestacy Rules if no valid Will is in place). Our partners are often appointed as Executors and can often provide an independent view of the issues at hand, particularly where there are disputes within the family. Where someone has died without a valid Will, we are able to guide the family through what can be a complicated process.

Our expert team can advise on all aspects of the administration such as making initial enquiries with all the financial institutions, preparing and submitting the inheritance tax return, submission of the probate application and post-Grant issues such as dealing with the income tax affairs of the deceased. 

Often the UK Revenue can raise enquiries into an estate; our team has significant experience in negotiating with HM Revenue & Customs in these situations to achieve the best result possible for the beneficiaries.
