Probate & Estate Administration

The death of a loved one is a difficult time.  In addition to the emotional aspects, the deceased’s financial affairs will need to be administered.  This will be in accordance with their Will if they made one or, if not, in accordance with the intestacy provisions.  Whatever the position and whether the estate is large or small, we can assist you.  We can ensure that all of the legal requirements are complied with, thereby taking away additional stress from the family. 

I would like to thank you for all your kindness and administration of the Estate over the last few months. Also for the sensitivity that you have shown to me in what is a very difficult time.


We can assist by:

  • advising on the terms of the Will
  • advising on the intestacy provisions if there is not a valid Will
  • explaining the role and duties of the executors
  • safeguarding the executors from risk and liabilities
  • gathering details of the assets and liabilities
  • assisting with any foreign aspects of the estate
  • preparing the inheritance tax (IHT) account
  • obtaining any IHT reliefs that may be available
  • obtaining the Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration
  • distributing the estate
  • dealing with any related income tax (IT) or capital gains tax (CGT) liabilities
