We are here to help you through the complexities of estate administration whether you are an executor of a Will or someone close to you has died without a Will.

We know how hard it is to come to terms with a death and will guide you through the formalities patiently and sensitively. You will usually deal with only one or two members of staff each fully aware of the estate details and known to you by name.

We offer legal and practical advice on all aspects of estate administration, from obtaining Grant of Probate to advising how long documents must be stored after the administration has finished.

Wherever possible we explain the procedure in advance (for example, registering the death) to help you deal with the formalities which must be carried out within a certain time limit yet which can be bewildering when you are grieving.

For immediate assistance in estate administration please call 01372 721122.
