Administration of Estates

Following the death of a loved one, people very often do not feel ready or able to deal with the many administrative and financial matters which require attention. We are sensitive to these issues and understand that this can be an emotional time. 

We can help you deal with all the relevant Government Departments, Banks, Building Societies, Inland Revenue etc. and if necessary apply to The High Court for a Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration on your behalf.  Our aim is to assist you in sorting out the deceased’s affairs with the minimum of fuss. We can advise on any Inheritance Tax implications relating to the administration of the estate and ensure that all available reliefs and exemptions are claimed. As a rural firm we are particularly proud of our expertise in the area of Agricultural Property Relief and Business Property Relief.

Sometimes people feel that for whatever reason they have not been properly provided for by someone’s Will. Courts now have wide powers in these areas which may help you, but it is very important to act quickly to consult us about the matter. Again one of our experienced Probate Solicitors will be happy to discuss the matter with you and advise you how to proceed.
