None of us will avoid losing someone we love. But you can avoid some of the challenges that may arise at such a difficult time. Estate administration can be a time consuming and complicated process. We are able to remove some of the worries the administration involves by guiding you through this process. We can help you deal with the administration of the estate, at a time when you and your family are coming to terms with your loss.
There are many reasons why you may prefer us to assist you in the administration of the estate. For example, to avoid the onerous responsibility placed on executors, due to the liability to beneficiaries, creditors and HM Revenue & Customs.
We can help you shoulder, what can seem to be a heavy burden, at such a distressing time. We have a team of highly qualified solicitors and probate executives, together with established links with a number of accountants and investment managers. We believe that this adds to the administration of the estate and enables us to provide an efficient service to clients ensuring that the estate administration progresses as smoothly as possible.
Estates vary in size and complexity. Each estate is different. It is often apparent from an early stage whether there are any complex issues to be dealt with. We are confident that we can advise you on any complex matters that arise.
