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
