Our Will and Probate Solicitors on our Inheritance & Welfare team have a vast amount of experience dealing with all issues in relation to Will and estate matters. Many people are unaware of what happens on death when a Will is not made. Our dedicated team can help you with all aspects of making a Will and help in relation to Estate Administration (in the absence of a valid Will).
Where our Will Solicitors can help
7 out of 10 adults do not have a Will and without one:
• A surviving spouse will not necessarily inherit everything;
• An unmarried partner has no entitlement;
• The family home may have to be sold; and
• Children may be unintentionally disinherited.
Our Will and Probate solicitors can help you protect your interests and give you the peace of mind knowing your estate is taken care of when you pass away.
Estate Administration - Probate or Intestacy
When someone passes away, there are a number of important tasks that need to be completed. If the person died leaving a valid Will, then the named Executors take on this responsibility. In the absence of a valid Will, the person is said to have died “Intestate” and the Intestacy Rules determine who can be appointed as the Administrators of the estate.
The role of Executor or Administrator can be an onerous one. The deceased’s estate may involve valuable or complex matters and an Executor or Administrator is personally liable for administering the estate correctly.
Every Executor or Administrator can instruct a solicitor of their choice to assist them with the estate administration and the legal fees are settled by the deceased’s estate.
