Probate and Estate Administration

Probate is the process of confirming a death and taking care of all the necessary tasks that follow when someone dies.   Estate Administration is where the executor, the person named in the will is responsible for distributing the assets of the estate. It may mean selling property, accounting for taxes and distributing money.     It can be complex and be a lot to take on especially when there is loss and heart ache.    We can ensure that all the loose ends are tied up.

Wills and Inheritance Disputes

Probate can often lead to disputes amongst family members and friends of the deceased.  Arguments regarding inheritance can evolve. If you find yourself in such a situation then contact us, we can assist with resolving those disputes. 

If you are in this situation, contact us.

Lasting Power of Attorney

This is different from a Power of Attorney.  A Power of Attorney is a temporary step to cover an event.    A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) can be complicated and requires registration.  LPA’s are important should someone loose their capacity due to physical or mental health problems and are incapable of managing their own affairs.   LPA’s need to be in place before this situation arises. Our Wills and Probate team can help you through all the legal formalities.

For more information contact us.

Court of Protection

This is a formal procedure that is initiated when someone has not already given a Power of Attorney and can no longer manage their affairs.   This is a situation you will want to avoid.
