probate and estate administration

If you have lost a relative or friend, dealing with the estate administration can be particularly challenging during what is already a very difficult and emotional time.

Lees Solicitors are on hand to help you through this, offering advice and a friendly ear to ensure the deceased person’s wishes are carried out.

how lees can help

We recognise that what you really need in matters surrounding probate and estate administration is practical, hands on support that will alleviate the stress of the situation.

Here are just some of the ways our Wills, Trusts and Estates department can assist you:

  1. Notifying the relevant people and organisations of the individual’s death
  1. Obtaining the required probate valuations for both assets and liabilities
  1. Completing the necessary forms and accounts for the Inland Revenue
  1. Agreeing with the Inland Revenue how much inheritance tax is payable (if applicable)
  1. Applying to the Probate Registry for the Grant of Probate, which establishes the authority of the person dealing with the estate and the validity of the Will (if there is no Will, Letters of Administration are required)
  1. Considering alternatives that would best accommodate a beneficiary’s need or reduce inheritance tax, e.g. varying the terms of the Will
  1. Collecting assets, paying bills and distributing the estate to the beneficiaries
