Helping loved ones to manage estate administration

Estate Administration

How We Can Help...

What is estate administration? Simply put, is it the process of handling a person’s legal and tax affairs, including any debts and expenses, after they have died before any inheritance is distributed to beneficiaries. 

We understand this might sound complicated and overwhelming. Whether you are financially planning ahead, or are facing estate administration challenges, we are here to support you. 

When a loved one dies, obtaining a grant of probate (or ‘confirmation’ in Scotland) might be required. Obtaining a grant of probate basically allows you to then legally handle these estate administration tasks:

  • Dealing with Income Tax and Inheritance Tax (IHT) 
  • Redirecting post
  • Registering and selling properties
  • Valuing assets
  • Cancelling or transferring utility bills
  • Managing any shares or investments
  • Notifying and liaising with estate beneficiaries

When a loved one dies, it can be an emotional time. We have access to  financial experts will help to make estate administration as stress-free as possible while ensuring that you are legally compliant.
