Having a will ensures that you choose who will benefit from your wealth rather than leaving this to the law, which can produce undesired consequences.We are also able to advise on the impact of Inheritance Tax and help you take steps to minimise tax liability. At the same time we often advise on other provision such as Lasting Powers of Attorney, the Court of Protection and Trusts.
When someone has died, whether or not there is a Will we will ensure that an estate is administered sensitively and that instructions are carried out with skill and experience.
We can help
- obtain Probate or Letters of Administration
- deal with Inheritance Tax
- gather in all the assets of the estate,
- settle any liabilities
- deal with the distribution of the estate to the beneficiaries.
Sadly, disputes do sometimes arise when someone dies. Sometimes the validity of the Will is in question, or dependents wish to challenge provision which has been made. We have the depth of knowledge and experience to deal effectively with these cases.
