Wills and Probate

Preparation of Wills

We will ensure that your individually created Will makes adequate provision for your loved ones after your death. This means that you get to decide who will benefit from your estate after your death.

If you do not have a Will your estate will be dealt with according to the rules of intestacy. This means that the process of dealing with your estate becomes more complicated, expensive and you will not have any control over who benefits from your estate. Under intestacy there is a requirement to make sure that every possible beneficiary to the estate is identified and enquiries are made to trace any missing beneficiaries whose whereabouts maybe unknown.

 

Probate / Letters of Administration

The process of dealing with the estate of the deceased can be a very stressful and emotional time for families. However, our clients can be assured that we will deal with them with sensitivity, understanding and with a professional approach.

We can apply for a grant of probate or letters of administration from the local probate registry and provide you with advice on inheritance tax matters. It is important that you bring with you a certified copy of the death certificate / birth certificate and a copy of the Will of the deceased when you come to see us for advice.
