When a loved one has passed away, obtaining the probate can be a daunting exercise. We frequently act as executors of estates but can also advise executors in respect of their obligations and duties on probate matters. We can assist with ascertaining the full extent of assets and liabilities of an estate and complete the required inheritance tax reporting forms in order to obtain the Grant of Probate. We can then proceed to advise with the estate administration.
If you are in the process of obtaining the Grant of Probate or administering the estate and there are indications of contentious issues or matters have become contentious, we can advise at whatever stage in the proceedings you have reached.
