Probate and Estate Administration

If you are the Executor of a Will, or the person entitled to administer the estate of a deceased relative or friend, you will of course want to ensure that the matter is dealt with as quickly and efficiently as possible.

The service we provide is to collate details of the deceased’s assets, liabilities and income, advertise for creditors and submit an application for Grant of Probate or Administration.

Sometimes this requires an upfront payment of Inheritance Tax which we arrange for you.

When the Grant is received we collect in the assets, pay any outstanding debts and expenses, deal with any Income Tax Return and distribute the estate to the beneficiaries.

During the administration there may be other related matters requiring attention and we can help you by dealing with these as well.

In providing this service we will ensure that the matter is dealt with sympathetically and without fuss. Giving you comfort at what we understand can be a traumatic time for you and your family.

For this service we charge an hourly rate and give you an estimate of the time we consider that the matter will take. If the time starts to exceed this estimate we will advise you and give a revised estimate.

Unlike many other firms we do not charge an additional fee based on the value of the estate.
