PROBATE AND ESTATE ADMINISTRATION
The probate department is well established and highly regarded. An enviable reputation has been built on years of providing an excellent service to our clients.
We recognise the trauma of losing your loved one is never helped by having to deal with their affairs once they are gone. Following the loss of a loved one, we offer a complete probate service and adopt a sensitive practical and creative approach dealing with the administration of their estate.
We understand all of our clients are individuals, and that any package of services should be tailored to their needs. We are therefore able to offer a complete service whereby we will undertake all aspects of the administration of an estate, form registering the death through to dealing with the application for probate, negotiating all relevant tax issues, dealing with the collection of assets, finalising income tax affairs or liaising with accountants to do so, through the ultimate distribution of the estate.
As an alternative, if the family wish to deal with parts of the administration themselves, we are able to provide a tailored service on a fixed budget agreed at the outset to assist with those aspects of the administration with which they feel assistance is required.
We have extensive experience in dealing with a wide variety of issues arising out of the administration of an estate following the loss of a loved one, and are experienced in negotiating inheritance tax issues with H M Revenue & Customs, liaising with financial specialists, accountants and other professionals to ensure the administration is dealt with in a professional and prompt manner.
