Probate & Administering an Estate

When someone dies there is a long list of things to do, not least of all grieve!

So how do you know what to do and where do you start? Who do you need to inform? Who can arrange the funeral? Who can deal with the assets? The answers to these questions depend on a number of factors, including whether the deceased left a valid Will and who their family members are.

The person who has the legal authority to deal with a deceased's affairs has a hefty burden on them to ensure that all the correct laws are followed, all debts are paid, any taxes are paid, all beneficiaries are paid … the list goes on.

The way in which an estate will be administered will depend on whether the deceased left a Will or not. When someone dies without a Will this is known as an Intestacy.

We were very impressed by Lauren's efficiency, warmth and professionalism. Having sought advice on our wills elsewhere and being bamboozled, it was refreshing to have everything explained clearly and all options discussed in a straight forward manner. Already recommended Lauren to friends. Mr & Mrs Clarke opening-speachmarks closing-speachmarks

Thank you to all at Taylor Bracewell for all your help to us as a family in selling our mum and dads house and for taking us through probate. Thank you Richard Ellis, you were very helpful and made things run smoothly at a time when we were grieving and not thinking straight, you took a lot of pressure of us.
