Expert guidance and support in obtaining probate and settling an estate.
Dealing with the complexities of probate and winding up an estate can be a daunting prospect as financial institutions have different rules and procedures, and executors are liable to HMRC for any errors made in the calculations in regard to inheritance tax.
Our private client lawyers can offer the clear, empathetic support you need to deal with all of the practical and legal issues involved in handling the estate of a loved one who has passed away.
We can often assist beneficiaries with mitigating inheritance tax that they might need to pay as a result of their inheritance.
Our private client team includes members of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) reflecting our expertise in this area, and we help our clients with:
- apply for probate;
- administering an estate with no will (Intestacy); and
- changing a will with a deed of variation.
