Dealing with the death of a loved one, whether a relative or a friend, can be a difficult and emotional time.
You may be overwhelmed by the formalities of the administration of the estate, or simply lack the time to deal with the estate. We can help you as much, or as little, as you need.
Our private client team combine a compassionate approach, legal expertise and experience to ensure the timely and smooth running of an estate from start to finish.
– Help you to apply for the Grant of Probate (if the deceased made a Will), or the Letters of Administration (if they did not make a Will).
– Calculate the amount of inheritance tax due on the estate and organise any payment to HMRC for you.
You did a remarkable job. Thank you for helping us in such a professional yet friendly way, to close this final chapter.
We can also:
– Manage the entire estate administration process, including calculation of the value of the estate assets, application for the Grant, gathering in of assets, paying of liabilities and making distributions to the beneficiaries.
– Provide advice on the option of varying a Will, and drafting the Deed of Variation, if required.
If someone you know has died and you would like help dealing with their estate, please do get in touch. We are here to help.
