Our Wills and Probate team of solicitors are highly experienced in providing advice and assistance in the preparation of Wills and the execution of matters of probate.
A Will is a document in which you declare how your Estate is to be managed and distributed upon your death. A Will should include the person you want to administer your Estate. This person is known as an “Executor” and Probate is the process of a court authorising an Executor to administer your Estate in accordance with your Will.
It is possible to write your own Will and there are many cheap options helping you to prepare a ‘D.I.Y’ Will. However, in our experience it is not always as simple as it may first seem and there are a number of intricacies in the rules and regulations governing the preparation of Wills which make it a complex area of law. If you are not aware of the pitfalls and the legal guidelines that need to be followed, your Will may not be valid. We ensure that your Will is written in accordance with your wishes, meets the legal requirements and ultimately gives you peace of mind knowing that your loved ones will be taken care of.
We also assist in all matters dealing with probate, and once probate is obtained can help Executors in making the application for Grant of Representation. We assist in the collection of assets, the discharge of all liabilities and can prepare Estate Accounts in accordance with the Will of the deceased. We can advise on all matters relating to Inheritance Tax and are happy to help complete the forms required by HMRC.
