How we Can Help you With Probate

If you have been appointed as an Executor under a Will or are taking on the role of Administrator on an intestacy (when the deceased did not leave a Will), you will be undertaking a task that brings with it a host of responsibilities and obligations. These include but are not limited to:

  • Protecting assets until they are sold or transferred to beneficiaries.
  • Finalising all matters pertaining to Inheritance Tax, Income Tax and Capital Gains Tax.
  • Preparing and submitting an application to the Court for a Grant of Representation (Probate or Letters of Administration).
  • Ensuring all debts and liabilities of the estate are settled.
  • Distributing the estate in accordance with the deceased’s Will or according to the Rules of Intestacy.

Testimonials

I was given honest advice so that I didn't waste money on arranging Power of Attorney, the money was better spent on a Will to ensure security for my son. Many thanks.
