Probate is the umbrella term for any dispute relating to a person’s estate after their death.
The most common contentious probate claims are based on the will not being valid or claims for ‘further provision’ from a person’s estate – this is where a person feels they should have been provided for, usually by a spouse or parent.
If you care about your probate issues to be dealt quickly and in a professional manner, look no further.
Our expert team is on hand to help. We can manage the entire process on your behalf, or offer helpful advice on how you can carry out the necessary tasks yourself – ensuring that everything will be taken care of.
Probate and estate administration can seem complex and bureaucratic. We will liaise with HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) on your behalf to negotiate on valuation issues where appropriate, as well as completing the appropriate HMRC forms, while considering the inheritance tax implications and resolving domicile issues. We will also, on your behalf, collect in assets and settle all liabilities and then deal with the distribution of the estate. If necessary, we will also advise you on how to raise the funds to pay any inheritance tax due.
