When a loved one dies, the prospect of having to deal with their financial and personal affairs can seem a great burden at such a distressing time.
Our sensitive and caring Estates and Administration team can immediately remove this unwanted burden and guide you through those unchartered waters. We can help you to complete all relevant paperwork and remove the pain of having to notify the various institutions of your sad loss.
Our qualified team of professionals will shield you from the mountain of paperwork and leave you to focus on those issues more personal, and of greater importance, to you at such a difficult time.
You can choose the extent to which you wish to be involved, or simply hand over the burden of the entire paperwork for us to deal with on your behalf.
Our comprehensive Estates and Administration service covers all your likely requirements to include: obtaining Grants of Representation, completing all Inland Revenue accounts, discharging all tax payable, outstanding bills and funeral costs, the realisation of assets and the ultimate distribution of the estate in accordance with any Will or under the Intestacy Rules.
We can advise on the effective use of Deeds of Variation which may help to limit the amount of Inheritance Tax which may otherwise be payable and advise on the future Estate Planning of those beneficiaries standing to inherit from the Estate of the deceased.
We want to give you the best possible service. However, if at any point you become unhappy or concerned about the service we/I have provided then you should inform us immediately, so that we can do our best to resolve the problem.
In the first instance it may be helpful to contact the person who is working on your case to discuss your concerns and we will do our best to resolve any issues at this stage. If you would like to make a formal complaint, then you can read our full complaints procedure here. Making a complaint will not affect how we handle your case.
The Solicitors Regulation Authority can help you if you are concerned about our behaviour. This could be for things like dishonesty, taking or losing your money or treating you unfairly because of your age, a disability or other characteristic.
