If you are an executor to a Will or are being asked to be one it will be your responsibility to handle probate after their death.
This can be a time consuming process which will involve some legal requirements and, depending on the complexity and size of the Will, may be quite daunting.
For a simple Will with a few beneficiaries who may have equal shares for example, you may be able to handle the majority of your duties with a little help from a professional. For more complex wills you may choose to hand the process over in its entirety to a probate specialist.
Duties may include...
selling one or more properties
calculation and distribution of funds to beneficiaries
dealing with inheritance tax with HMRC
dealing with banks, investments and any liabilities
...and much more
Our probate services are designed to offer as much or as little help as you require, to make the process as painless as possible and to ensure that everything is handled legally and in a correct fashion.
