When a person dies, the emotional strain it causes can be exacerbated by the burden of having to deal with what can seem like an overwhelming amount of bureaucracy and paperwork.
We will ensure that your loved one’s affairs are wound up in a sympathetic and friendly way. Our team understands the difficulties you can face at such a difficult time and will work hard to ensure matters are dealt with as promptly and economically as possible.
Our expert team will guide you through the whole process of valuing the assets and liabilities, applying for the Grant of Probate, collecting in the assets, paying the debts and legacies and making the final distributions.
We will also deal with all tax issues arising out of the death and will give you specialist advice on any steps which could be taken to minimise the tax liability.
At the end of the administration we will prepare a detailed set of accounts for you to see what has been dealt with and how the estate has been distributed.
We will also assist in whatever way we can if a dispute between the beneficiaries arises. See Estate & Trust Disputes for further information.
Our team is recognised as one of the largest and approachable team in Kent and we pride ourselves on our practical no-nonsense approach to what sometimes can be a very technical area of law. Our skills are also recognised by the prestigious Society of Trust & Estate Practitioners.
If you feel confident you can handle the estate administration yourself. We can offer a fixed cost approach to obtaining the grant of probate. Please review our Prob8.co.uk site which has all the details.
