PROBATE AND TRUSTS

We understand that these matters are of immense personal importance to our clients and we are sensitive to that need by being open and approachable, and explaining what we do in a way that is easy to understand without resorting to confusing legal jargon.

Our two main aims are to provide a supportive personal service when circumstances require and to ensure efficient tax and financial planning is in place to protect and maximise assets.

The death of a loved one is undoubtedly a stressful time. We try to help significantly at this time by taking on the burden of administering the estate of a loved one. We advise and assist to ensure a person's Will is followed or to ensure that an estate is distributed properly if a person dies without making a Will.

Our probate department offers:

  • a high level of expertise at reasonable rates
  • a prompt and efficient service
  • a sympathetic approach
  • creative solutions to complex problems

Our involvement in an estate can vary from preparing the necessary papers to obtain the Grant of Probate to the full administration of an estate including obtaining valuations of all assets, completion of Revenue accounts and ensuring payment of inheritance tax, ensuring payment of liabilities outstanding at death, collecting in and distributing assets to beneficiaries. The costs involved in dealing with an estate vary depending on the level of work required from our Probate Solicitors and the variety and value of assets involved. Our Probate Solicitors can provide a competitive quote and are happy to meet with you in order to discuss your requirements.

An estate can involve any number of unusual aspects, including missing assets, missing beneficiaries, insolvency and arguments over assets and possessions. We can advise and assist in all situations.
