Probate / Estate Administration

Blacks Solicitors’ expert Wills & Probate team specialise in providing a friendly and bespoke private client service in relation to Probate/Estate Administration.

We understand that when someone passes away it can be a stressful and distressing time for all concerned and our Wills & Probate team are experienced at administering Estates in a caring, efficient, and cost-effective manner.

If an individual leaves a Will, they have appointed Executors to deal with an Estate, whereas if someone dies without a Will, the people who deal with the Estate are called Administrators.

As an Administrator, we can guide you through the whole process to ensure your duties are correctly carried out.

For example, when someone has assets over £5,000 then it is usually necessary to apply for a Grant of Representation (sometimes called a Grant of Probate) to deal with their Estate. We can assist the Executors or Administrators with this process.

We can also deal with the entire Administration of the Estate from start to finish for those Executors who want the support and comfort of knowing that the Estate is being handled by qualified professionals.

Our services include:

  • Fast and efficient Estate Administration
  • Reporting to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC)
  • Advice regarding Inheritance Tax and Deeds of Variation
  • Advice to mitigate any Capital Gains Tax (CGT) liability on an Estate

 

For more information about administering an Estate, or for a free no obligation discussion, please email or call Blacks’ Wills & Probate team today on 0113 207 0000.

  • I engaged with Nadine Owens of Blacks to prepare my parents wills and LPAs. The service that Nadine offered was both professional and personable. Ultimately it was a very difficult situation for Nadine to deal with but she handled the whole process fantastically well, always on hand to provide advice and ensure that we were all updated every step of the way. I would have no issues in recommending Nadine and Blacks moving forward, based upon my experiences to date.

  • I just wanted to say thank you for everything you have done for us. It was a great relief to me when you took on the probate for us and guided us through the process. In the past, we have always found Blacks extremely helpful and professional and this continued with sorting out my mum’s estate. Thank you so very much.

  • Outstanding service. Your technical knowledge, attention to detail and efficiency have been second to none and without it I am certain that we would not have achieved such a good outcome. The way you have dealt with me as a client has been sympathetic at a difficult time but also you have a friendly, professional and approachable manner meaning I felt I could talk to you about anything and have the confidence that you would have the right answers. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending you to friends, family, colleagues and acquaintances.

Not all matters have been entirely straightforward but Nick has provided clear and accurate advice, has always been available (even during his holidays) and has dealt with matters promptly and efficiently, whilst always keeping me informed.

Nick was very prompt, polite, knowledgeable and patient. He offered us some great advice on how our new will could be drafted to maximise the benefit to our family, whilst taking the interest of our employees into consideration… Based on my experiences, I would have no hesitation in recommending Blacks to anyone looking for quality, efficient legal services.

  • I know nothing about the law. At times like these you need a solicitor who can explain so as to enable a client to make intelligent, rational decisions with appropriate advice. Lucy did all of this for me.
