Probate & Estate Administrations

We recognise this is a difficult time for people following the death of a loved one and we always act in a sensitive and respectful manner.

We can handle all aspects of an estate administration including:-


  • Registering the death
  • Preserving and securing the deceased’s assets
  • Valuing the assets and liabilities
  • Considering any claims which might be brought against the estate and acting accordingly
  • Obtaining and registering the Grant of Probate/Letters of Administration
  • Realising the assets and paying any liabilities
  • Clearing the tax liabilities
  • Distributing the estate to the beneficiaries
  • Preparing the estate accounts
  • Registering any Will Trusts for tax


We can act on behalf of Executors where there is a Will or on behalf of Administrators where there is no Will.


Where the Executors or Administrators have the time, energy and expertise to deal with the general estate administration themselves, we can still assist them in obtaining the Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration and/or to finalise the tax position for the estate where they wish us to do this.


We can also act for beneficiaries (including charities) to ensure that they are treated fairly by the Executors or Administrators and that they receive their proper entitlement from the estate.


Any advice and/or assistance in this area will be charged at an hourly charging rate of £150 plus Vat, with a quote or fee estimate being confirmed once it becomes possible to estimate the volume of work involved.


This excludes any disbursements (i.e. payments to others required to progress the matter), which you will be advised of separately at the earliest available opportunity.
