Probate & Estate Administration

Although the responsibility for administering the estate usually lies with the executor of the will, the individual will first need to apply for the legal authority to do so. Also known as applying for a ‘Grant of Probate’ that will hand over permission to deal with the deceased estate. Our team of specialist solicitors understand the sensitivity of this process and will provide hands-on support throughout.

If the executor cannot or doesn’t want to administer the estate, then an administrator will need to apply for ‘letters of administration’ which will then allow them to handle the estate. This also applies in the circumstance in which there is no will (intestate) and we can, if required, assist by carrying out the following duties;

  • Liaise with the undertaker
  • Obtain details of the estate
  • Apply, if necessary, for the appropriate grant of representation
  • Liaise with the appropriate tax authorities
  • Release all of the assets and distribute them in accordance with either the will or the rules of intestacy
  • Distribute the estate in accordance with the will

Our extensive experience in the field means you can trust that when you’re no longer here, your family and loved ones will have all the support they need.
