Alice Carter-Tyler Testimonial

Estate Administration (Probate) when someone dies

Losing a loved one is devastating – and dealing with the consequences when someone dies can feel like a series of aftershocks, especially if you’re the one trying to sort out their affairs.

Before you even get on to the will, you’ll have bills coming in, frozen bank accounts, authorities to inform, calls to make, and piles of urgent paperwork to deal with… all at the one time in your life when you may feel least able to cope with it.

If you’re the executor of the will, you’ll have to find and list all of the deceased person’s assets, determine all of his or her liabilities, settle debts, negotiate with the tax authorities, and apply for probate.

But we can help. We can bring a clear head to the situation, advise you on which legal steps you have to take, and – if needed – help you trace long-lost beneficiaries, debtors or assets.

We have years of experience, we can demystify the complexities of the law in this specialist field, and we can even do it all on your behalf if you find the experience too daunting. And if you’ve used us before, you’ll know we’re compassionate, supportive and understanding.

But if you’re confident that you can do most of it yourself and just need some light-touch guidance and legal advice on the bits you don’t quite understand, we’ll be happy to help you with that, too.

We’re only a phone call or e-mail away, so give us a call now on 01752 664444 or e-mail us at …and we can begin to lighten your load.
