  • Administering an estate after someone has died

    Obtaining a grant of probate is just the start of the estate administration process. Once obtained there are bank accounts to be closed, shares and property to be sold, accounts to prepare and beneficiaries to pay. All jobs which can be time-consuming and difficult at an already stressful time. We can assist you with all these matters as well as many others to ensure the process is as simple and easy as possible.

  • Deeds of Variation

    Even after someone’s death there is still an opportunity to alter someone’s wishes. Whether this be for family reasons or to try and carry out some tax planning. Deeds of variation are a great way to manage an estate the way the surviving beneficiaries wish. Be careful though, you only have two years from the date of death to prepare this document!
