Administration of the Estate

Access to professional services

We understand that dealing with the death of a loved one can be a stressful and emotional experience. This is why we want to support families by offering you access to professional services that can reduce the burden at a difficult time.

One task that you may need to consider is administering the estate of the person who has passed away. This can be a complex and time consuming legal process that involves dealing with all of the assets and liabilities associated with the estate. This could include property, stocks, shares, bank accounts and other personal belongings that need to be distributed in line with their Will.

There is often a significant amount of paperwork that needs to be completed, not to mention liaising with various third parties and calculating the tax that is payable on the estate. Some clients choose to undertake the estate administration themselves, but others prefer to appoint a specialist firm to do the hard work for them.
