Probate and estate administration

The legal formalities that can follow the death of a loved one are, for most of us, an unwanted burden at an already difficult and distressing time.

  • Ordering effects and effecting disposals
  • Ensuring legacies and charitable bequests are handled in the most tax-efficient manner
  • Providing advice for beneficiaries

What our clients say

QuoteAlan and I would like to thank you so much for your kind and thoughtful attention and for dealing with my late father 's and Cathie's estates so sensitively and professionally. It was a very difficult time for us and you were a great support. We both wish you every success and good health in the future.

Stephanie and Alan Luxford

QuoteAs my business with your probate section is nearly at a close, I would like to take the opportunity to pay respect to the sterling work of Lindsey Duinhoven on behalf of myself and before me, for my late father. Ms Duinhoven is a credit to your company. What impresses me, personally, is that she manages to combine a true professionalism with a friendly approach. This is exactly what I want from a legal executive. I know my late father, a qualified barrister at law, felt the same and told me so.

Paul Bethell, the estate of the late H. P. Bethell

QuoteThanks for everything you have done this year! I have to say, in hindsight, that Auntie's decision to appoint her solicitor as executor was a very wise one. It certainly made a distressing year easier to cope with.
