Probate & estate

It’s always a difficult time when someone dies. And with it comes an administrative burden, commonly known as probate. But we can handle that for you.

The starting point is to address some fundamental questions: Do you need to apply for probate? Do you need letters of administration? We can answer these for you. Identifying the deceased’s assets and liabilities is the next step. We’ll then draft the relevant HM Revenue & Customs inheritance tax forms to claim all the relevant tax reliefs.

We are expert at negotiating with HM Revenue & Customs to minimise an estate’s inheritance tax liability. Post death variations of the will to maximise the value of the estate is another tool at our disposal. Distributing the estate to the appropriate beneficiaries follows, once we have settled any tax liability.
