Courtyard Solicitors are a Law Socity accredited law firm who are very experienced in matters to do with probate, wills, family and property law. We can help in advising you on all aspect of making a will or obtaining a grant of probate.
It is essential for you to consider making a will to ensure that your estate passes to those who you wish to benefit from it. A will keeps you in control of your financial affairs after your death and further, can save your dependents from various problems to include tax issues.
Further, if you wish to pass on specific gifts, for example, a gift to a charity, cash gifts to a friend or a piece of jewellery to a specific child, you are able to do so in your will.
Probate is the legal process of dealing with a deceased persons estate and involves taking instructions from the executor of the deceased’s Will (grant of probate) or the deceased’s nearest relative/relatives when there is no will (grant or letter of administration), obtaining details as to the assets and liabilities of the deceased’s estate and then making an application for either a grant of probate or a grant of letters of administration.
Once the grant has been obtained, we will then deal with the collection of the assets of the estate, discharge all liabilities including the Inheritance Tax (if applicable), paying funeral expenses and distributing the assets pursuant to the terms of the will or in accordance with the rules of intestacy.
If you would like some advice on any of these matters please do not hesitate to contact us.
