Professional Guidance in Bereavement

We understand our clients’ needs particularly in bereavement and take the time to listen, to follow instructions and keep our clients informed throughout. We will provide you with professional guidance to assist you with the financial affairs and where necessary apply for Probate and Administer the Estate.

We can assist you in obtaining the Grant of Probate, or Letters of Administration in the absence of a Will.  These legal documents are often required to grant legal authority to the person appointed to deal with the Estate.  We can assist further by dealing with all aspects of the administration including valuation of assets, agreeing and settling any inheritance tax liability, gathering in the assets from the various financial institutions, selling or transferring shares and or property as appropriate and distributing the assets in accordance with the Will or Intestacy rules.

Here at Craig Gee & Co we have a specialist Court of Protection team who can assist in such applications.Once a Deputy is appointed by the Court of Protection they can look after and make decisions about the person who lacks capacity to deal with their finances and property and further for their personal welfare where appropriate e.g. to make decisions about medical treatment.

Being a Deputy is an important role and the Deputy must act in the best interest of the person who lacks capacity. Deputies are supervised by the Office of the Public Guardian. Disputes within families about who should be appointed as a deputy can arise.

Here at Craig Gee & Co we can help in such difficult times to obtain a speedy resolution which is in the best interest of somebody who lacks capacity. A person suffering from a mental disability will be incapable of making a Will. We can assist by making an application to the Court of Protection to make a Statutory Will. This will ensure that the person who lacks capacity is able to provide for those it is thought that they may have provided for in a Will if they were able to make one. A Will may have already been made prior to somebody losing capacity but as time passes and circumstances change the Will may no longer be appropriate and relevant, so a Statutory Will application can be made to address this.
