When someone close to you dies, we understand how difficult it can be to handle all their legal and financial affairs whilst still coming to terms with your loss.
It might be the first time you’ve needed to take care of these arrangements, otherwise known as probate, and the process may be unfamiliar to you. Our highly experienced solicitors are approachable and sympathetic. They’ll guide you through the process so you have one less worry on your mind.
To administer the assets of the deceased you’ll need to establish if a valid will has been made, identify all the assets and possessions owned by the deceased, as well as debts owed, then calculate any inheritance tax due. Next, tax must be paid, debts settled, assets collected, accounts prepared and the estate must then be distributed correctly so you avoid any personal liabilities.
