Probate: Online Assistant

Acting as an executor of an estate can be a rewarding task but it can also be a complex, stressful and an expensive one if not handled appropriately.

Due to an increase in wealth, the number of ways people ‘own’ their assets, and the rise of blended families, people’s affairs are becoming more complex. But even without complexity, being an executor of a person’s estate can be challenging, particularly given the risk of personal liability. Our guide to administering deceased estates provides some preliminary information about what’s involved. Additional information regarding key timeframes when administering a deceased estate is also available here.

It’s crucial that you receive early and specialised advice.

We can help you

Transition wealth to the next generation

We help executors of an estate to transition wealth to the next generation, regardless of the complexity and value involved.  We ensure that the task is undertaken in a respectful and effective manner, whilst ensuring that you’re protected from liability throughout the process. 

Make application for probate

We have vast experience in applications for probate (proving the validity of a will) and letters of administration (where somebody dies without a valid will) and acting in the administration of those estates; from ‘calling in’ the assets to distributing the estate to the beneficiaries.
