Wills and Probate
The main purpose of a will is to make sure that your wishes are properly recorded and can be carried out after you die. A will also helps to prevent unneeded stress and expense for your family. We recommend that all our clients make a will, particularly once they have children. We will examine your individual needs and advise accordingly.
The death of a loved one is a very difficult time and we can help by providing proper legal assistance in dealing with the affairs of the deceased. We deal with all types of Estates, whether or not there is a Will and we advise spouses and children in respect of their legal rights. We advise Legal Personal Representatives on all the information they require and will assist with the following:-
- Liaising with the banks to assist in arranging for payment of funeral expenses
- Applying for a Grant of Probate in cases where a person dies having made a will
- Applying for a Grant of Administration in cases where a person dies without having made a will
- Completing tax returns
- Selling assets and paying out the net estate to the beneficiaries.
