We understand that the administration of a person’s estate can be a complex, time consuming and often emotional time. That is why we work with you to take the strain and make the process a straightforward as possible, giving you complete peace of mind.

Our highly experienced and trusted team will obtain a Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration and deal with the Legal, Tax (excluding vat), Property and Estate administration affairs. We will also take care of dealing with property and estate administration, assets, and liabilities as well as more specialist issues such as varying a will and redirecting gifts, which may be beneficial for tax purposes.

We will deal directly with HMRC (HM Revenue and Customs) on your behalf and carry out all the necessary checks to ensure validity of the Will, when there is not a valid Will, we will apply the Rules of Intestacy to the estate of the deceased.


If there is property in the Estate which needs to be sold, then we can assist you in appointing an Estate Agent for the marketing and sale of the property.
