What is full estate administration?
You get a lawyer or other qualified legal person to deal with the entire process. Please see our Probate Process Infographic for more information.
When to choose full estate administration
When you do not have the time, are not used to dealing with finances or are going through a difficult time and want someone efficient and sensitive to handle the process for you.
The benefits of using a lawyer
Winding up an estate takes time and executors have considerable responsibilities: duties are owed to creditors of the deceased, there is tax to be paid, and beneficiaries need to be satisfied that the estate has been dealt with correctly. Those who get it wrong can face personal liability.
We are used to winding up estates of every size and complexity. A specialist lawyer can alleviate the burden. Our knowledge and experience will ensure that any difficult issues are dealt with correctly.
We work in partnership with Thomson Snell & Passmore tax solicitors, residential conveyancing solicitors, personal tax team, corporate and commercial lawyers and dispute resolution solicitors to handle the different tasks.
How much does it cost?
Probate costs depend on the complexity of the estate. Before we commence each stage of the process, we give you clarity on costs, explaining what work will be covered.
How long does it take?
At the outset, we give you a schedule of the work to be done and estimate the time it will take.
