Whilst theres no lecture from us on this topic, we would say that this is often a very complex process, not to be attempted without some experience, a lot of spare time and patience.
We understand that dealing with the death of a loved one can be a stressful and emotional experience. This is why we want to support our clients at their time of need by offering them access to professional services that can reduce the burden on them at this difficult time.
One task that you may need to consider is administering the estate of the person who has passed away. This can be a complex and time consuming legal process that involves dealing with all of the assets and liabilities associated with the estate. This could include property, stocks, shares, bank accounts and other personal belongings that need to be distributed in line with the Will.
There is often a significant amount of paperwork that needs to be completed, not to mention liaising with various third parties and calculating the tax that is payable on the estate. Some clients choose to undertake the estate administration themselves but others prefer to appoint a specialist firm to do the hard work for them.
We recommend & work with Kings Court Trust, one of the UKs leading estate administration specialists. We are a gold partner and if you choose to use us, we would remain your direct contact throughout and they would actually do all of the complex administration because it is what they do.
They have helped over 7,000 families deal with the estates of their loved ones, offering a range of services to reduce the stress and work involved, such as providing:
A lot of people simply turn to the nearest High Street solicitor to get the job done without a second thought about the cost, and whilst this is the easy option, it may not be the most effective or efficient solution. Solicitors charge in the region of 2-3% of the gross value of the estate, Banks have been known to charge 4-6%. We on the other hand only charge for what needs to be done. So why pay more?
