Without a will, you have no say in how your estate is distributed. It is always wise to consider your will as early on in life as possible. We can help you record your wishes, explain how they would impact you and your family and provide help and advice on inheritance tax.
If you die without a will, the law will dictate who will inherit your estate and, particularly in the case of unmarried couples, this may not be the outcome you desire.
If you are dealing with the estate of a deceased, our probate solicitors are experts in the legal processes involved and can assist you in obtaining a grant of probate or letters of administration and deal with the assets and liabilities of the estate. We will help you locate the beneficiaries to the will, pay the correct taxes and protect your position as the executor or personal representatives. Where the situation requires it, we can advise beneficiaries on Deed of Family Arrangements.
