Probate Solicitors for you and your family

In the event someone close to you has died you will need help through the process of Probate.

Registration of the death, preparation of inheritance tax, will and trusts are all part of probate.

Our expert team will hold your hand from start to finish.

 

The Probate Process

Executors are now legally required to perform their duties with the utmost care and ‘due diligence’. If you take on the role of an executor or administrator then you become personally liable to the beneficiaries for any loss resulting from wrongful use of the deceased’s property, negligence or maladministration.

Our experienced probate solicitors can assist you in the performance of your duties, ensuring you avoid breaching ‘due diligence’ regulations.

Our solicitors can:

Take the necessary steps to register the death and obtain details of the deceased’s assets and liabilities, with the assistance of professional valuations if required;

•  Prepare the Oath for executors or administrators;

•  Prepare Inheritance tax accounts and lodge them with the Inland Revenue;

•  Collect in all the deceased’s assets, taking into account the relevant provisions in the deceased’s will;

•  Ensure that all debts and liabilities of the estate are discharged, including funeral expenses and any other outstanding bills, including tax;
