We understand our client’s needs especially in bereavement matters. We take the time to listen and follow the instructions provided. Our client’s are informed throughout the matter.
We will provide you with professional guidance to assist you with the financial affairs and where necessary apply for a Grant in order to administer the Estate.
We will 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.
We also regularly advise on Estate Planning, Trust and Deeds of Family Arrangements. The solicitors in this practice take a caring and professional approach to dealing with the Administration of Estates efficiently and sympathetically.
We can arrange early mornings or evening appointments and meet at your home rather than our office if this is more convenient.
A Probate Dispute can arise for various reasons. Listed below are some examples of the cases we regularly deal with:
- Whether the Will was executed properly.
- Did the Testator (person making the Will) have mental capacity.
- Claims by the spouse or children under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependents) Act 1975
Such disputes can cause considerable distress. Our team of Probate specialists utilising their skills in conciliation will endeavour to ease hostilities between family members. But where necessary they are also prepared to fight on your behalf to secure proper entitlement. We strive to bring reason and perspective to Probate litigation while protecting our client’s interest.
