The death of a loved one is a difficult time. Parker Bullen LLP have assisted many generations of families when it comes to structuring and distributing estates.

Whether the estate is large or small we can help with the legal process in the most efficient way possible. We believe that our role is not limited to dealing with the legal process of administering an estate but also includes providing guidance and practical advice to those who need the support.

We provide assistance in all aspects of Probate and Estate Administration. Some of the ways in which we assist are as follows:

  • 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
  • Gathering relevant details in relation to the Estate
  • Assisting with any foreign aspects
  • Preparing the Inheritance Tax (IHT) account
  • Maximising any Inheritance Tax (IHT) reliefs that may be available
  • Obtaining the Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration
  • Dealing with all taxes that are connected with the Estate Administration to include Capital Gains Tax (CGT), Income Tax (IT) or Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) for example
  • Preparing Deeds of Variation to alter the distribution of the estate if required
  • Preparing Estate Accounts
  • Distributing the Estate

An application for a Grant of Probate can take around 4 weeks.  When dealing with a full administration, this could take in the region of 6 to 9 months, but sometimes longer depending on the circumstances.

We are able to make applications for a Grant of Probate and Letters of Administration for a fixed fee.  Please see our Estate Administration costs page.

If you require any assistance please feel free to contact a member of our Private Client team.
