Upon the death of a relative, administering their estate is an important step to undertake. In some circumstances, this is more difficult because there is no Will or it is somehow invalid. We can guide you through what the right steps are. This process is commonly known as ‘probate’.
When a death happens, the assets of the deceased are distributed. This is made simple where a well drafted and up-to-date Will is in place. Where there is no Will or what is drafted is not legally valid, this requires an administrator. Often, this is the next of kin. If this is you, you are required to distribute the assets in accordance with the relevant laws.
We advise you how to do this and in some circumstances you may ask us to act as the estate administrator. Whatever your situation, we can guide you through the process. We keep things simple. We promise to keep in regular contact with you and will always use plain English.
