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 have needed to take care of these arrangements, otherwise known as probate, and the process may be unfamiliar to you.
Our solicitors are approachable and sympathetic and can guide you through the process so you have one less worry on your mind.
To administer the assets of the deceased you will 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, and calculate any inheritance tax due. Then tax must be paid, debts settled, assets collected, accounts prepared and the estate must then be distributed correctly so you avoid any personal liabilities.
The service we offer will be tailored to your individual needs. We can assist you with the complete probate process from start to finish. Alternatively, we can just assist you with obtaining the legal authority to deal with probate yourself; this is known as the grant of representation. We can do as much or as little as you wish.
Hodge Jones & Allen is regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and our lawyers are members of the Law Society and the Society of Trust & Estate Practitioners.
