When a loved one dies, we understand that it can be one of the most emotionally distressing times of your life. Probably the last thing on your mind is dealing with their property and affairs. Unfortunately, at some point these matters have to be addressed, and we can help and assist you throughout this process.
If your loved one has left a Will, you will probably be told by various institutions that they require sight of a Grant of Probate. If they have died without a Will (intestate) they will be asking for a “Grant of Administration” or a “Grant of Representation”.
As well as administering their estate or advising on the provisions of the Will, we can discuss with you the duties and responsibilities of Executors named in the Will, or Administrators on intestacy.
We can apply to the Court for the Grant of Representation, collect in assets, distribute the estate in accordance with the terms of their Will (or the rules of intestacy) and advise on taxation issues.
Ultimately, we can assist you as little or as much as you wish, at different levels dependent on your needs, and in such a way that you can decide how we help you.
