Dealing with an Estate

How to administer an estate

Estate administration is the process of dealing with an individual’s assets and financial affairs after they have died. Administering an estate can be a complex process.

Appointing a probate lawyer who knows how to administer an estate will normally mean that the process is resolved more quickly and reduce the risk of mistakes. It can also relieve families of the task of dealing with an estate, which can be much more time consuming, complicated and stressful than expected.

Our expert probate lawyers are experienced at supporting clients through the often difficult and emotional process of administering an estate. Our specialist estate administration team offers a flexible service and can handle as much or as little of the process as you require, including obtaining estate valuations, making contact with beneficiaries, making the probate application, dealing with tax payments, distributing the inheritance and any other tasks involved in administering an estate.

Contact us to discuss dealing with an estate. You will be offered an initial consultation meeting free of charge before you decide whether to instruct us.

If you appoint us to administer an estate on your behalf, a named probate lawyer will support your case from start to finish and a member of the estate administration team will always be available to speak to on a day-to-day basis.
