People are living longer than ever before and the need to protect accumulated wealth for your own use or to pass on to your heirs is vital. House price inflation means many homeowners fall into the Inheritance Tax net and with more and more people buying second homes both in the UK and abroad there is increased need to use specialist advice to protect estates.
Our Probate department provides advice with understanding and sensitivity when winding up and administering estates. They can establish whether it is necessary to obtain a Grant of Probate to allow assets to be collected and distributed in accordance with the wishes of the deceased or to obtain Letters of Administration if there is no Will. The rules regarding intestacy mean that the estate does NOT automatically pass to the surviving spouse if it is over £250,000. We offer comprehensive advice and can often deal with matters on a fixed fee basis. Whether your estate is large or small we can deal with it as little or as much as you want.
