Estate Administration

Estate Administration

When a person dies, someone has to take charge of dealing with their estate.  If there is a Will, this will usually be the executors but if there is no Will the intestacy provisions set out who is entitled to the estate.

We can help with obtaining a Grant of Probate (if there is a Will) or a Grant of Letters of Administration (if not) and complete the necessary forms. We can advise on the process to be followed, the pitfalls of being an executor and how to avoid them and to alert you to any tax planning opportunities that may arise in the course of administration.
