PROBATE

If a loved one has died, the thought of sorting out their financial affairs and estate can be a daunting prospect.

When someone dies there are a number of important tasks that need to be completed. If the person died leaving a Will, then the executors take on this responsibility. In the absence of a Will, the person is said to have died ‘Intestate’ and the Intestacy Rules determine who can be appointed as the Administrators of the estate.

We appreciate this is a difficult time and if you are dealing with a loved one’s estate or you are acting as an executor or administrator, we can help. Not only will we make the experience as stress-free as possible, our experienced estates and probate solicitors will also ensure that everything is dealt with correctly and efficiently.

We offer a range of services which can be tailored to your needs. Our specialist probate solicitors can help with anything from applying for a Grant of Probate and dealing with Inheritance tax through to dealing with all aspects of the estate.
