If you are looking to have the administration of an estate looked after by expert Wills solicitors, or if you are seeking legal advice where someone has died without a valid Will, get in touch today. Our solicitors are well-versed in all aspects of Wills and executry issues and will be happy to offer advice and guidance on this complex area of law.
Where there is a valid Will in place, an executor will have been appointed (who can then instruct a solicitor to take care of administration), and where there is no Will, or the executor has failed, the Court will appoint an administrator for the Will.
The administrator or executor is responsible for gathering all the assets and debts in the estate and preparing an inventory, paying for the funeral out of the estate; notifying the relevant financial institutions of the death; paying taxes; completing necessary forms; obtaining confirmation from court; distributing assets; obtaining discharges from beneficiaries; as well as discharges of Legal rights where applicable, and keeping clear and accurate accounts.
