Probate & Deceased Estates

Our firm helps you to take the stress out of the administration of a deceased estate. We assist Executors (where there is a will) and Administrators (where there is no will) to ensure that they comply with all legal obligations. It is a significant responsibility to administer a deceased estate and we make sure that you are guided through every step of the process, from understanding the will, compiling an inventory of estate assets and liabilities, applying for a grant of probate (where there is a will) or a grant of letters of administration (where there is no will), to paying estate debts, ensuring tax obligations are met and finally distributing the estate to the will maker’s chosen beneficiaries.

We operate on a philosophy that communication is vital in this part of the law, and keep you and beneficiaries informed of the status of the administration on an agreed basis.

Our costs are based on the amount of work required, not on the value of the estate assets.

Our firm also offers independent advice to beneficiaries and executors in relation to contentious estate matters.
